I am the proud mother of a beautiful boy who is almost 3 years old. After giving birth to him, I was stuck at a weight of 145-150 pounds, which really bothered me because I have never weighed more than 120 pounds. I was out-of-shape, and heavier than I had ever been. Doing small work-outs like pilates or walking made me more tired than I had ever imagined. It was really tough to find encouragement to exercise and lose weight when nothing seemed to work. My mother has never lost the weight after having kids, and for a while I felt like I was doomed to be heavy forever, never dance again and never enjoy the outdoors like I used to.

I found this site a few months ago and immediately started to track what I was eating. I had NO IDEA that I was taking in so many calories. Tracking my calories made me more aware, and accountable. I then joined a challenge that I thought was healthy and attainable - losing 10 lbs in 10 days. I figured "well, the worst thing that happens is I maybe have healthier food habits, but maintain my current weight". Since starting that challenge, I've lost 13 lbs and have only 5 to 10 more to go. I'm fitting in pants that I never thought I would wear again, and have to wear a belt with all my other ones. It feels good. My self esteem is higher and I am dancing, doing yoga, and going hiking again. I'm really grateful that I found this website. I hope I can find friends here that will encourage me to stay truthful and accountable to myself, and let me help them do the same.
