hi everyone, i am back to mfp. i have been back and forth up and down over the last 3 years and im ready to get back and stay i started about 4 years ago and lost about 45 lbs and got pregnant with my oldest (now 3) after i had him we have been through hell and back we had complications in delivery and he now has cerebral palsy, causing a ton of medical hospital stays dr. visits, a ton of therapy. i had to leave my job and gained even more weight. i started loosing agian and got pregnant again with our youngest and last (now 9 months) the only thing i could think about was loosing weight after my pregnancy and i started after i had him and then gave up. now here i am back at it i got very depressed and couldnt get my head in the game. i needed a reason and last week while on our way to therapy while listening to the radio i heard them talk about a contest most weight lost you win a cruise for 2 what better thing to get you motivated right? well since i started back i feel great. i have more energy im working out ive cut my calories down to 1500 a day and im so glad now to stick with it. thats why im looking for friends i can help to motivate me and i can return the favor. so now that you know my life story add me as a friend!!

    I'm with ya! I keep logging on then forgetting and getting sidetracked and I just have one little guy who will be 6 months next week and I thought I had my hands full! I play volleyball with a guy who's daughter has cp and I know it is a full time job. From now on I'm going to log on every day so we can motivate each other :)

    I sent you a request. I am a mom to 2 boys, a 2.5 year old energetic crazy boy and a 2 week old. Before my pregnancy I was in a great place with exercise and eating but I am really struggling to get back on track post partum.

    Welcome back! I'll send you a request as well.

    I'm a 31 yr old wife & mom to 2 children, a girl who will be 5 in July and a boy who will be 2 in June. I am here every single weekday - I was on 7 days a week, but I have gotten used to making healthier choices and trying to get a lot of walking in on the weekends, so I no longer even try to remember to do it on those days.
