Jen - I've missed you here. Welcome back.**

Melissa - I know you from other parts of the forum and FB, look forward to interacting with you here, too.

**She says as she peeks back in today after mostly lurking for the last couple of months or so herself.

Hey all! Sorry I have not checked in much since. I am down 10.5 lbs since mid-March, so there's that. Just trying to plan my food, drink lots of water, and move more.

Whodathunk it?

You lost a dumbbell's worth. How cool is that? And it's inspiring, because that's exactly what I want to do. I should just create a 10-lb ticker and think of it that way.

Give us some more details to revel in, if you get a chance.

Yes, I have a 6 lb ticker on MFP that is my 'sit up & pay attention' range. In case I get a bit out of control,

Hello all my friends!!! I have completely slid off the rails since pregnancy and childbirth. I am still wearing pregnancy jeans and Ethan is 18 months old (on Friday). Excuses, excuses - but he's STILL not sleeping all night and the lack of sleep makes it really hard to be motivated to do anything but go to bed immediately at night and drink cup after cup of coffee in the afternoons at work.

But - I am committed to TRYING. It's been 1.5 days so far, ha! It is a pleasure to "see" you all again.

Good to see you. I know returning here means you may not think that, but I am looking forward to your posts.

The quote in your signature is, hands down, the best I've ever seen, or at least the one that has haunted me the longest, and I'd know it was you even if your username changed, as long as it was there.

And yes, he's adorable. Is he going to have auburn hair when he gets older, I wonder? Don't remember what his daddy looks like, though I'm pretty sure I recall your wedding photos when they were posted here.

Welcome back Glory! Join me in the extremely post-partum club. My girls are 14 months and I am on week 3 of working on getting back down (using MuTu system + calorie counting).

I still love the signature, I need to internalize it again! Ethan has nearly white blonde hair, but my husband thinks it may have a reddish tinge too. Jason has sandy blonde/brown hair but was a tow head as a kid. My paternal grandmother was a red head, so the chance is there!

Of course day 2 of eating better and someone brought in a tupperware full of sugar cookies. I can do it!

Jessica and Glory, I think the babies decide when you can start to lose the pregnancy weight. Now that they are old enough to give you some time you can focus on a bit more than just them and all the rest of the "life" stuff that needs to get done every day. I'm sure you will both do well at getting where you want to go.
