I am a 33 yr old stay at home mom. I have been struggling with loosing the baby weight for 7 years now. I got pregnant at my heaviest weight (185) and the lbs just kept adding on. I was 232 my last day of pregnancy and then got back to 200-195 post baby, but slowly gained a lot back. My second baby was born 2.5 years later and I got up to 228 at the end of that pregnancy. I bounced back fast and got to 191 in about 5 months. Since then I have gone through a lot of yo-yo type diets and last November I got up to 248lbs! Insane! I have never been that heavy! I was a size 4, and 124 lbs exactly 10 years ago! My 5 ft 6 inches frame looks good at that size, and carrying all this extra weight is starting to wear on me. I wake up with pain in my feet, I have to walk slowly every morning when I get out of bed, and I just don't feel like a 30-something most days.
I am ready to start getting my weight under control for myself and to set a good example for my kids. Looking forward to getting the support I need to succeed here
My goal is to get to a size 8, and 135 lbs. Not sure how long it will take me, but I want to make a commitment to stay focused on the long term goal.
