Hi, I'm Rochelle. I am 28 and I am a mother to a beautiful baby girl. Isara was born on 1 January 2011 weighing only 6 lbs, 11 oz. We were expecting her to be at least 7 1/2 to 8 lbs. I am happy I'm done with being pregnant. It was uncomfortable and I had a few challenges to include gestational diabetes. So now I no longer have to measure out my carbs and have been able to indulge in the foods I've been missing, but maybe have indulged a little too much?!? My biggest mental challenge was not being able to have some sense of control over my body! Thankfully my appetite dramatically changed after having the baby and I trained myself during pregnancy to eat when I'm hungry and not ignore the hunger which just always led me to binge eating previous to this pregnancy. I am currently in the Army so I have to loose all this baby weight (started pregnancy at 146.2 lbs, got all the way up to 191 lbs) within 6 months after I have the baby. Actually I have to loose more than just the baby weight because I have to be at the most 140 lbs for my height and age by Army standards. I'm just barely down to 140 lbs and now on to my goal weight and hopefully never having to be taped again! I just need to be able to run now 2 miles in 20 mins, 30 secs so that I can go to school!

Not about dieting but need some advice/experience!
I was smoking about the same amount as you were...of course my reasons for quitting were pretty important...I'm preganant, but it was really hard...I didn't quit all together until I was about 5-6 weeks along. What worked for me was switching to electric cigarettes. I agree with HealthyBabs that if I smoke one I'll be hooked again...I still have cravings 6 months later. These electric cigaretts are only nicotine, none of the other crap is included that ciggaretts have (which is another factor added to the addiction) second hand smoke produced and there are different levels of nicotine that can be bought so eventually you're down to 0. Because it's pure nicotine you get your fix in fewer puffs...I was on the electric cigarettes for maybe 2-3 weeks before I knew I could just they definitely helped me. My brand is There are plenty of other brands out there. It may seem pricey but considering we've been paying as much as we have for so long already...all that money will be right back in your pocket once you officialy quit. Good luck and God Bless! - Rochelle
