Oh I don't know how I missed this thread!!!
My name is Samantha I am 25yo 5'1" and currently weight 194lbs, however, I am currently 33 weeks pregnant. (and ready to be done with it) I have a 27 month old little girl and a 13 month old little girl. I "was" around 160lbs prior to all the youngins and with my first I got up to 226lbs and felt MISERABLE. ( I was SOOO mad at myself). I never lost weight after my first but with my second I weight 226lbs prior to getting pregnant and then 188lbs after I had her. But, I gained weight, again...this time I was 201lbs prior to getting pregnant and now at 33 weeks pregnant I weigh 194lbs. This is my last kidlet.
My long term goal is 130lbs. I have a mare sitting in my pasture I bought two years ago that I am dieing to ride however I feel like I weigh too much for her so I am not so patiently waiting the arrival of our little boy so that I can get my rear back in shape and get on this mare!!!!
I drink approx. 8 bottles of water a day and eat lots of fruit. I also currently have an extremely strict diet as I am battling with a bad gallbladder and I can't eat a lot of veggies, meats, or anything containing higher amounts of fat. Everything causes me to have a gallbladder attack pretty much.
I just wanted to join the thread and tell everybody good luck. Its hard to loose a major amount of weight or even just five pounds but it is possible!!! Anything is possible!!!
