Hi! I'm 35 with 3 kids too.... Just turned 11, 9, and 19 months. My life has been totally crazy lately. I started my weight loss journey last July when we went on vaca to Disney. I figured with all the exercise that week I may as well keep it up and lose all the baby weight. I exclusively breastfeed until the baby was 15months so I had to be careful in the beginning. I started at 202 size tight 14 and today I am 166 comfortable size 10. My goal is size 6-8 145 lbs. but I officially weigh less than I did before getting pregnant with my middle child
My oldest was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetics on November 29. She was very ill and ended up in ICU for 5 days! I have never been so devastated and desperate to help any of my children in all my life. I'm a seriously devoted mom and I can tell you I would have done anything to stop what she went through/is going through. The positive side is that now I know what is wrong I have been full force in research mode and have gotten her BS down from over 500 at diag to a consistent 80-130. The doctors tell me this is remarkable progress!
In addition to my daughters illness I had a very close family member die the day after she was admitted to the ICU. November wasn't such a great Month.
Through all of this my desperate need to lose weight FOR MYSELF seemed to be such a silly thing. But even through all that has happened lately I am kind of proud that I didn't gain a single pound back that I lost
I missed my end of year goal for myself of 150 lbs but not by that much. Hopefully you guys can help keep me on track.
Thanks and sorry for the long intro post !
