After battling weight issues through my mid-20's I finally felt great about my health. On my wedding day I weighed 129 pounds - the lowest I had been since Middle School!
Although my first year of marriage was very good, my first year of marriage food was not. I was used to eating salads and chicken, fruit, fresh spinach. All of a sudden I was responsible for meals for a man; meals that included pot roast, pork chops, mashed potatoes, butter, ground beef, pasta.
Needless to say I gained 30 pounds in less than a year. Although I can squeeze into the same pants it is definitely not pretty!

WOOHOO! I am down to 136 lbs!

What a crazy year! In May I delivered 2 healthy, happy baby boys! I am ready to get some of my shape back but I must admit I'm not ready to really bust my butt. I know it will take some time. At my max I weighed 195 and I'm currently at 155 - right where I was when I started SparkPeople 18 months ago! I know I can do it!

Although I had really hoped I'd "bounce back" after having my boys I quickly realized it was going to take a LOT of work and that post-twin stomach - eek - might never look the same [or even close!]. Last spring I started running and exercising regularly but just barely made it into the 140's [goal was 130].
Well - here we go again! Baby #3 will arrive this June and I am determined to make good choices this time around. I'm going to continue to track my calories and exercise at a comfortable level (don't worry, I've talked with my doctor). Here's hoping I'm in better shape post-delievery than I was when I got pregnant.

Wow. Babies.
