I am pretty close to a milestone here.
I gave birth to my son, Will, a little more than 7 months ago. After a tumultuous pregnancy where I gained about 68 pounds, I dropped 34 pounds in the first three weeks after birth. Since then it’s been a constant struggle. But onward and upward, right?
Well back to the milestone. In late August, I joined SparkPeople, an online diet and health site. I got off to a very slow start with weight loss, losing approximately two pounds a month until recently when things really started moving for me.
So, in weighing myself this morning, I discovered that I am a half-pound away from having lost 20 pounds with SparkPeople. YAY!
I love the program on the site. It has really helped me to reassess how I eat and what I eat, not to mention when I eat. As a result, I feel healthier and happier than I did before. I still have quite a few pounds to go until I reach my goal weight, but I am confident I will get there by following the Spark.
Anyway, I just wanted to celebrate a bit here. I can’t believe I have really lost this much weight!
