I'm back with a new baby girl and 40 extra pounds from when I left

I am a happily married, mother of 3 under 6. I play softball regularly and love playing outside with my kids. I used to have active jobs but got laid off, so now get to spend more time with the kids. My heaviest was at 256 after the birth of my daughter but I have yoyo in between each pregnancy never really going beyond 210.
The kids keep me active but I can't drop it on my own so I'm looking forward to great support groups.

My Goals:
Getting as close to 200 before 1 year post partum and keeping steady. Met 2/13/09

Starting SP weight 248

My Program:
Haven't figured this part out yet. like the treadmill and running after Ryan on his bike. Have to fit more vegis into my diet.

Personal Information:
Originally from Belmont CA, Moved to Ukiah Ca for Highschool. Currently living in Phoenix AZ

Other Information:
Like playing sports but have too many favorite TV shows. We do have TiVO so I try to walk on the treadmill while I watch my shows. this works about 1/3 of the time.

    Hello! My name is Ana and I am a member of the Turbo Jammers team. Just wanted to personally welcome you to the team. There are a couple team members pregnant on the team :-) I know you aren't currently, but trying. Please join us in the group discussions and we also just started the November challenge. Please stop by and say "hi" we would love to meet and support you in your goals! PS... I also gained alot of weight when I was pregant (30 pounds the first time and close to 50 the next), but hey, they are healthy :-) Best wishes and Welcome again!

    I've been with SP for 3 months so far. (15 pounds lost yay!) One thing I can say is you get hope again that weight loss IS possible. I am actually EXPECTing to get to my goal weight instead of just hoping that it would just happen. Of course it takes work and dedication but you will find friends here that will encourage you and teams that will motivate you.

    If you don't find them right away... keep looking. Don't give up!
