I posted once or twice here so this isn't my first post. I've been reading through some posts here and would love to join your community and become an active member. I am roughly 50 pounds over weight, down from being 70 pounds over weight. So far, so good and hope to lose a lot more.

-Kira

Edited to add more info on me. Didnt quite have time to type a good intro post.

I am mom to a 14 month old little girl named Lily and already getting baby fever lol. I don't want to get pregnant until I'm healthier. I was a little overweight when I got pregnant with Lily and want to be healthier and feel better about myself before the next one comes along. Also, I have a strong feeling that if I don't lose the weight before conceiving baby #2, its gonna be a lot harder to after baby #2 is born. I want to stick with it and be serious. So far, I weigh less than I have since bringing Lily home.

Thanks so much! Like I said, it's easy for me to lose weight. I'm not really even exercising. Just playing with my 14 month old. Baby bench presses (she loves it and I get a work out! Lol). She is ~23 pounds, so I've been getting some muscle doing that, but my arms are far from toned. Foods that keep me fuller longer really help, too.

Just saw your edited intro... if this baby is a girl we will name her Lily Anne. Probably, unless we think of something we like better, LOL! It's a lovely name. It can be a lot of fun "working out" with little ones. Lots of moves you can do with Baby playing the part of a weight, and of course getting them to dance with you is always fun.

Well that's funny you mention that,, my daughter is Liliana lol we call her Lily for short. It'll be a couple more years before we are ready for our second baby. Aside from getting healthier before our next baby, I also want DD to be weaned and potty trained.

Welcome to the board Kira! Congrats on your weight loss success. Hopefully the rest comes off just as easily for you. I found that with some of my kids, the weight came off really easily and others I really had to struggle.

I'm trying to get into better exercise habits and get more muscular. The girls here have really helped me stay on track.

Thank you! So far, so good. I just started working out more today. Hopefully I can keep going and not lose interest in it. It did feel good to move around though.
