Default I'm Baaack!

Some of you may remember that my husband was deployed and coming home in mid-July. Well because of his homecoming, vacation and a cross-country move for our family, I've been absent from the board. Sadly, I also fell off the "healthy lifestyle" bandwagon and managed to gain 6 lbs!

On Monday I joined the gym and began journaling my food again and I already feel SO much better! I'm now 10 lbs from my goal... but I know I'll get there eventually. I thought I would share photos of the homecoming for anyone interested. He deployed 9 days after our second baby was born and he was totally surprised by my 30 lbs weight loss. It was awesome!

Our 6 month old.

You can't tell, but I was bawling my eyes out.

Seeing Ruby for the first time since she was a week old!

Daddy's Boy

Reunited and it feels so good. Haha



I'm so happy to rejoin you all!

Wow, I tip my hat to you for being separated for so long from your DH. Mine goes away once a year; my kids are 9 and 6 and I'm a nervous wreck without him. You all seem so happy. That's great.

Congrats on making it through the deployment! And look at those babies and their CURLS! So adorable! I'm new to the board, also a Navy wife. Is Chesapeake where you moved from or to?

Anyways welcome back to the board!

Welcome back to the area! I'm guessing you fared well in the hurricane I never even lost power, but since I was sitting around waiting for the power to go out all day I didn't really eat any real food cause I was too worried I'd go to cook it and the power would go out! Now I'm back on track though.

We were without power for 3 days! We just got it back this morning. I've eaten like crap, so I'm looking forward to getting back on track and going to the Y today.

Yeah it's like impossible to keep a good diet with no power! Do you like your Y? I joined One Life cause the one near my job (chesapeake square) has a pool and it's sooo affordable.

I love the Y so far! I looked into OneLife, but we'll be transferring back to FL in 6 months, so I couldn't make the one-year membership commitment. I hate how expensive the Y is, but it provides childcare, which makes it really worthwhile. I like the group classes I've tried so far, the equipment is nice, and there's an indoor pool, outdoor pool (and kid pool) plus a splash park... oh and a playground with picnic tables... You can't get better than that when you have a high-energy 2 year old!
