i was skinny before i got on birth control in my freshmen year of highschool. i went from 108lbs to 180lbs. in about 6 months. i started to regain control of my weight in my senior year of highschool, and then i got pregnant at 19. i gained about 80lbs in my pregnancy. seeing that number makes me sick. i can not believe i gained that much weight during my pregnancy. i wasnt prepared and did not combat my cravings and i didnt do any physical activity at all. when i went into labor i was 260lbs. two days after giving birth i was 243lbs. i joined spark (under a different sign in) a month after my son was born in early 2008, and i lost about 28lbs. then i left spark for a bit and rejoined in may of 2010. since then ive lost 26 more pounds, and i have 60 more pounds to go to get to my ultimate goal.

    Boooooo! Well I've been sitting on mine with the same results. Your situation being markedly more frustrating, for sure!! I maintain my position: it should be as easy to lose weight as it is to gain it!!!! emoticon

    I am a list maker too. Sounds like we have a lot in common. Its always nice meeting someone else who has to eat gluten free.

    Losing weight before baby is a good goal. I wish I had been at a healthy weight with my first two because starting at a healthy weight with my last made things so much better. Im glad I got to have the experience.
