My Joys and Struggles

My personal exciting news..

It may not be exciting to many but I now weigh in at 291! I have not weighed that in over 2 years.. When my husband I and started dating I weighed in at 221. I was a size 16/18. I was happy and comfortable in my own skin. By the time our wedding came around in June 2008 (started dating April 2007) I weighed in at a whopping 288. Its sad to go back and look at how fast my weight just flew up. Ugh! Come May 2009, I am pregnant with a son I would lose at 12 weeks and I weighed in at 297. Even more depressing. Ugh! I weighed 294 when I got pregnant with my daughter September 2009. My highest weight during that pregnancy was 326- ridiculous but it was okay at that time because it was for baby. After I gave birth I weighed 313.. June 2010. At the beginning of 2011 I weighed 306 and fluctuated forever between that and about 310.. Since the beginning of the year I have now lost 15 pounds and have 96 more to go. I know I can keep up the good work and get it done but I know that one day at a time is the best way to go.
