Hi! My name is Lana. I am pretty much disgusted with myself at the moment. I am 5'3 and 204 pounds as of today (7/11/07). I am going to lose that weight! I want my husband to be proud of me the way I am of him! I want him to show me off and boast about me the way I do him! I miss my size 9 jeans and feeling pretty and not feeling exhausted all the time. I had a baby in April (3 months ago) but still, there is NO excuse to weigh this much at this height. Not only do I want to look and feel good again, I want to regain the self-esteem I have lost.

UPDATE-8/1/07 : Stepped on the scale today, and guess what: I dropped TEN pounds! That's right, I am now 194 pounds!! :D

UPDATE-11/17/2007: Fell completely off the wagon for three months and gained every pound back. I am now 201 pounds and feel awful. Time for a new start. I am going to start all over again (after Thanksgiving, that is). Back to stage 1 of the Spark Diet. Back to Tae Bo. Back, back, back.

    Hi-I found your page through the spring rolls recipe-which sounds great BTW. But YOUR little baby boy is soooo BEAUTIFUL! I just want you to know that it is OK that you still have your baby weight, I just recently lost all mine, 9 months to put it on, and yes it took 9 months to take it off. I gained 70 lbs when I was pregnant, and when I came home, I was only 20 lbs lighter. 200lbs. But it will come off-if your nursing, that DEF. helps! You know, you've got an older one. Just dont stress, have fun with your little ones! They are both such angels!

    Thanks!! So far so good!! Except we went to eat last night. So, I went a bit over the calories, but still managed to keep the fat content lower than normal. How are things going for you?
