My weight has fluctuated up and down. After I had my son, I lost almost all of the baby weight. Yet, after my daughter.... I didn't lose ANY of it! I gained! Of course, I kept it on for quite a while, too. My daughter is 7 in this picture.
In 2004, I decided enough was enough! I worked hard and lost 40 lbs. It was definitely a start! And I kept it off! Then in 2009, I did some Weight Watchers at home and lost another 10 lbs.
In this second week, my energy levels have NOT been crashing in the afternoon like usual. I feel steady throughout the day. That is good! I would usually start to crash in the afternoon and reach for my Mt. Dew.
