This has been a hard but well worth it journey for me so far. I started my journey in July of 2010 after my daughter's 1st birthday. I was so tired of not participating in pictures and if someone did happen to snap a shot I was horrified at the results. After having two children I was at my highest weight in my life. 250 pounds. I used the excuse that I was breastfeeding so I needed the extra calories. How sad was that!
I finally said enough is enough!! I signed up for weight watchers and was so pleased that they had an option for breastfeeding mothers now!
It was the best thing I ever did for myself and 10 months later I have lost 85 pounds and feel amazing. Oh and I am still breastfeeding but eat less than half the calories.
I have another 15 pounds to go to hit my goal weight(I actually would like to lose another 25 but I never even thought I would make it this far so my first goal was 150) and I feel great! I love to be in pictures now and have so much more energy. I can do so much more with my family and that means more to me than any cake, cookie, or candy bar in the world.
First picture- highest weight of 250
