I've been on spark people since January 2008. With almost two years of hard work I lost over forty pounds. I got pregnant right after and tried to watch my weight during pregnancy. I did a pretty good job - only gaining thirty pounds (although my goal was 20). After delivery I lost eighteen, leaving only 12 additional pounds to lose. However - my baby had multiple hospitalizations after birth and my stress eating caused me to put on 8 more!! So here I am, with twenty pregnancy pounds to lose as well as the fourty I need to lose to be health. But now I have a new reason to lose weight in addition to my own health and well-being, I want to be around for all the big events of my little ones life!
So here we go again. I am ready to do this with the help of Sparkpeople!!!

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990
