Baby number 3 really left his mark on my body. I was skinny till I hit my teens then the family trait to gain weight took hold, but each baby has taken me further over the edge. My youngest is now nearly 7 so I can't keep using him as an excuse for my weight. While I was on maternity leave I found Sparkpeople and lost loads of weight but when I returned to work all my positive routines, time and focus left me and I quickly picked up all my old habits. In just a few months I was right back to the beginning. I have bounced around yo-yoing and each time I come back to Sparkpeople because I know when I take the time to use the tools, trackers and join in the community it really works. However life keeps getting in the way, stress takes over best intentions go out of the window and the weight goes straight back on......... So that is why I am back yet again. To get back in control, get back my health and get back my life. A life I love and want to live fully for a very long time to come.
