hi everyone my name is maria, i'm 35 and after almost 2 years PP and overeating and too much chocolate, i finally hit bottom.
my son is still breastfeeding and i think that's what kept me from not gaining more than 5lbs these last two years.
a little back story; i've always been a little on the chunky side. being this short doesn't help me hide the extra weight. in mid 2009 when we started talking about conceiving, i was weighing around 165lbs and knew i didn't want to head into pregnancy that weight. i starting working out and watching my calories and by april of 2010 i was down to 116lbs. (before this, the thinnest i'd be in my adult life was around 125-130lbs)
PP i was still hovering around 116lbs (i'm a little over 5'2) and working out 2-2.5 hours a day. (i actually enjoyed it!) i did light exercise until about month 6 of my pregnancy when my son decided to go head down and not move again and exercising became uncomfortable.
this time around, i have found that i stress eat (aside from my husband, we have 0 family in town and i'm a SAHM...i know some moms are like super women, but i am not!) and with a toddler who has yet to sleep through the night, i'm a little low on energy
on saturday, the 16th when i decided to join online weight watchers, i weighed myself at 141.2. i would love to get back down to 115-120lbs this year and i'm hoping this is a great place for support!
i weighed in for WW this morning and i managed to lose 2.5lbs this week.
i look forward to getting to know you ladies!!

oh and i've managed to squeeze in a daily dose of 30mins of cardio for the past 7 days. i hope to keep that up too!
