Hello all, I'm new as well.
I do a lot of up and down (more up, I have to admit..) but about a year and a half ago I decided to get very serious about getting into shape to be competitive for the martial arts I do. So starting at 178 I worked myself down to 148 (yay!) with my goal of getting to 130.
Then I got pregnant.
I was 199 at 9 mos preg, and now 4 mos later I am back down to 160-ish (158-161). Mirabelly introduced me to this website. She says I'm a scale addict.
I have to admit that even though the last time I was 160 I felt really good about myself, I now feel the opposite, knowing that I have lost ground since a year ago.
Hopefully I can get fully back into my workout regime while taking care of my 4 mos. old girl. I'm doing all of my crunches still, but finding treadmill time is near impossible. Going out for walks is out because of the incredible mosquito problem here in New Brunswick, Canada.
I'm sort of on the low carb-diet, but it's more like avoiding anything with too much fat in it.
