Not happy at all. I've gained over 30lbs in the 3yrs since my youngest was born. I had alot of bleeding issues for the first 1.5yrs after she was born, and my neuromuscular issue (affecting my legs) has gotten worse making walking/moving harder so I've gained weight.
I need to loose 100lbs total to be at my ideal weight for me (higher end of ok for my height). But my first goal is 50lbs. I'll be taking water areobics for my PE classes (all I'm allowed to take).
I am pretty happy with my weight, but my doctor thinks it is a bit on the low side. I don't exercise at all, but really need to as I have had a pretty substantial drop in my flexibility as measured at my lest doctors apt. They suggested something gentle like yoga or tai ch, but I'm not sure.
I need to lose nearly 100 pounds myself. I was already 40 or 50 pounds overweight when I met my husband. After 6 years, 8 miscarriages, and the death of my father, two aunts, and uncle, and two grandmothers (all in that 6 year window) I gained another 50 or so pounds.
I have a hard time fitting exercise into my already crazy, hectic day though. With school, work, housework, home-schooling...there just aren't enough hours in the day.
