Hi everyone, just wanted to take a few minutes to re-introduce myself. There are a few here that I remember but many many that are new to me! I'm Sommer, I was "here" about a year and a half ago. I was doing great, but for some unexplainable reason, I started having issues when I was exercising. I'm a calorie counter and thought that I need to up my calories so I did but it didn't fix the issues. I gave up on exercising and it wasn't long before I gave up on counting my calories. In September of last year I got a wonderful surprise. After trying for over a year and giving up 6 months before then, I was pregnant with our 4th baby. So that brings me to where I am now... I have a nursing 10 week old boy on top of my other boys ages 3 and 10, and my one and only girl who is 4. I'm a stay at home, homeschooling mom. On my journey to lose weight before, I lost 13 pounds, right now I'm where I left off weight wise. This time I have to make sure that if I fall off the horse for any reason I get right back on it, that is my biggest problem! I have added support this time, hubby is doing this with me!! So, it should be easier if I do have a bad day to get back to where I need to be.

Anyway.. I'm happy to be back, and look forward to getting to know everyone!!

Congrats on the baby first of all, they always put things in such nice perspective for us. Sounds like you have tons on your plate but taking care of the person that takes care of everyone else is always a great idea! Welcome back and I know you'll do great :)

OMG! Congratulations on the new little one, Sommer! Looks like you are not going to have any problems finding ways to keep moving! Kids, the most underrated exercise equipment in America!

It is great that you are back to posting --- all the support here at 100+ can make a big difference in staying OP (it sure does for me)! So welcome back, we saved your special seat over on the window seat that overlooks that English garden --- and lookie! new water bottles! (LOL)

Hi Sommer. Congrats on your new little boy (I have 4 boys and twin girls, and I'm an HSing mama, too), and welcome back to 3FC.

Good luck with your weight loss effort!

I remember you Sommer! Congratulations on the baby! I'm so glad to hear you're back on track. Having your hubby on board makes a world of difference. Whenever I'm tempted to go off track my hubby's there to remind me of my health/progress.

Hi everyone!

Tummy Girl, it's HARD to remember to take care of me, I am forever putting everyone else first!

Numina, I could use that water bottle, the kids like to steal them from me LOL.

Beck, it's great to meet another HSing mama here!! HSing must really be growing because I'm no longer looked at like a freak and I find more and more others out there!

Gela, I remember you too :) I'm so happy to be back, I have thought a lot about everyone here quite often over the past year or so.

Rosinante, Thanks.. they are awesome kids (even when I want to kill them all ;) )
