I'm 29, a mother of three, my oldest son is 10, my daughter is 7, and my baby is 1.5. They keep me busy to say the least :) I am married to a wonderful man................with amazing metabolism!!! It isn't fair!! I've been struggling with my weight since my second child was born. It just flew off after my first, but I've been holding on to a large portion of it since my second child. I lost about 40 pounds with Weight Watchers when my middle child was around 2 years old, but packed it all back on with the third baby!! So, this is the first time I've SERIOUSLY tried since then! There have been half hearted attempts, but no success. It's all or nothin' with me! I started this time around with the South Beach diet for the first 3 weeks - I cheated twice and kept starting over to get through phase 1, which is kind of rough - no grains, sugars, or fruit. I've decided to switch back to what I know and have had success with in the past - Weight Watchers. I think it's a great program that teaches you how to eat healthy. I will say that when I was on South Beach, I DID seem to have more energy. I believe that is because I'm a carb junkie, so I just need to try to incorporate more protein into my diet, but I just really LOVE my carbs, and I'm not even talking about the unhealthy ones, I LOVE the healthy ones, but they do lead to craving more.
