    I just read your hearrending story. As a mom, I can imagine how painful it is to lose a baby. I didn't experience miscarriage, but I know lots of other women who have . It is VERY common, just not talked about very much. And I had a Csection too, and Vbac. (boys)

    Anyway,one thing you migth look into is Overeaters Anonymous. I have done this before in my past, and it has been a revolutionary way of looking at our relationship with food. I lost a lot of weight some years ago, but for some reason in recent years , after regaining that weight, I have not been willing to do what it takes. At some point, one has to "put the food down", just as an alchoholic must put the bottle down. For some of us, there is no halfway measure. I just haven't been willing to give up my drug of choice; food!
    I do know that setting concrete numbers for goals can backfire. If you come to a place where things go wrong and you are tempted to retreat into depression, it will make for a convenient weapon to castigate yourself if you havent met those goals. That sort of self critisism only leads to further eating and so on , and so on.
    If you are a Christian, look to your faith in God and leave it in God's hands. God cannot lead the way if you won't let go of the reins.
    Yeah, it was tough. Each one was tough. I had more tubals than miscarriages though - but regardless, a baby was lost each time. It took my a LONG time to recooperate - not just physically, but mentally.

    Overeating isn't so much my issue. The main reasons that I personally gained the weight was from my emotional and physical battles that I've been through (I've been pregnant 5 times and lost 3 out of 5!) Even just the stress alone can do crazy and ugly things to your body.

    Losing the weight is just a matter of being strong and disciplined. Well, and educated. You have to be strong enough to NOT overeat, and to say NO to "junk" food. You have to be disciplined to workout 3-5 days per week (and really push yourself). And you have to be educated to KNOW what you SHOULD eat and what you shouldn't.
    For most people (including myself) the biggest battle is Getting Started. Which I did "un-officially" start myself - I've been watching what I eat, but I haven't had a chance yet to start my workouts. But I'm working on starting soon ... I just need to work out a few things with my schedule and my hubby's schedule, etc.

    Super cool....good luck to you. I too am changing my eating lifestyle to be much more healthy. I don't need to lose any weight, but do need to be fit, strong and all around healthy. Been working out for a few weeks now so far and going to start a brand new way of eating this week.

    Yeah this thread has definitely inspired me to kick it up a notch. For me, eating is totally the issue. I'm a convenience/boredom eater - the worst kind. I have 5 months til show season and after grocery shopping today feelin fabulous about what was bought. I also made this recipe tonight: Detox Green Soup Recipe with Broccoli, Spinach and Ginger

    It's pretty hardcore, as in its not like eating a cheeseburger LOL... its pretty plain? But it turned out decently edible and made a TON for a very small amount of money.

    Thanks for the inspiration Juliein!

    I bought the book "Cinch" seems like it will be a nice change. Not just a yoyo diet thing.....an actual lifestyle change.

    Good luck guys!

    Awesome!! And thanks for the link! I just might have to try that! I love the whole Detox theory, and I've done some minor detoxing before. I doubt I can do it right now - because I'm nursing. But whenever I decide it's time to stop nursing (I'm not sure yet when that will be - but it won't be before she's a year old, and she's 7 months now) I plan to do some type of detox. Haven't officially decided specifically yet, but I'll keep this recipe in mind :) Most detoxes are done over the course of a few days. Actually, there's a really good detox diet that takes approx a week. Just not sure if I have the will power for it - it's basically a "juice" detox diet. Anyway, I gotta figure something out. Detoxes do the body good!

    Need some encouragement!? How about just some helpful tid bits!? How about a challenge??

    As long as this thread stays alive, I will post tips and tid bits about diet/exercise/etc. (may include videos.)

    Above I mentioned a "challenge" ... WELL ... here's the deal:On occassion I'll post a workout video (full version). And I will CHALLENGE you to do it! If you accept the challenge, well first of all you got a good workout in and should be proud of yourself! And second of all - you'll get POINTS for accepting the challenge and completing it. Once you reach so many points (I have to figure out all the details) - you will win a prize. It will be something like my Photo Art, or a free photography session if you're within driving distance of me, or something along those lines. It will be SOMETHING nice. Like I said, I just got to figure out all the details. I'll post details and rules when I figure it all out.

    Anyway ...
    Here's the first video I'd like to post.
    10 Min. Pilates Flex Full

    YOU GET 10 POINTS for completing this 10min. Workout.
