Struggling stay at home mom

Options
Hey there! My name is Amanda and I am a stay at home mom to 4 little ones aged 8 months- 7 years old. I have started this journey many times but have never succeed. I'm hoping to find at least 1 accountability party that is in the same boat as I am.

    Hi Amanda. I'm also a SAHM of 4. Mine are ages 11, 9, 4, and 22 months. Although I am still breastfeeding my 22 month old (which supposedly burns extra calories) I'm still struggling with my weight. I have around 50lbs I need to get rid of for good. Feel free to add me if you like.

    Hello Amanda I'm not a stay home mom.. I am 26 yrs old I have a 5 1/2 yr old boy, 4 yr old girl, and 5 month baby girl.. I have however felt hopeless before I didn't realize how big I had gotten size 14 in jeans until I saw myself in a picture I saw how fat my face was and my body I was shocked.. I started eating healthy and working out went from 216 to 153 in less than a yr and it was awesome... I gained around 15 lbs then got pregnant with my 3rd child... before I gave birth to her I was 235 now I'm 163... I delivered all via csection..
    I did start working out slowly 3 weeks postpartum being able to fit perfectly in my size 8 jeans is awesome. I do have a goal to reach 140.by the time my baby girl is 1 yr old... I'm just your average person. I have good days and bad days and I been Able to do it because of my motivation... it is not easy but it's worth it... you will get there just take it.one day at a time
