I found this forum a few days ago and am hooked. The first thing I did was read through the sucess stories. WOW what an inspiration those were.
A short Intro.. I am Sunita, a SAHM mommy to 4 kids, my girls Ashwina who is 9 and Avasha 6, and my boys, Neil who is going to be 4 and Samar who is turning 2 in Oct. I am of Indian origin but born and brought up in Singapore. We are currently living in Boulder, CO.
Now about the weight, I have been pregnant or nursing for the past 6 years and neglected my body. I was eating too much and just trying to keep up with the house chores and the kids.
The day I gave birth to Samar in 2006, I was 240 lbs. To say I was shocked is an understament. Still I didnt do anything till Jan of this year, when I joined a gym and started controlling portions and eating better.
I now weigh 186 and want to get down to 140 or a size 8.
I got to know about Nordic Walking and bought poles in March and am hooked. I NW 3 miles on weekeday(everday) and abt 5-7 miles on weekends. I get up at 6.30a/m to walk with a friend.
Thanks for reading that
