I made myself a little promise....when I gained my 50lbs. with River, I promised myself that I would be back to "normal" when he was 9 months old...heck, it took me 9 months to get so big, it should take me 9 months to get healthy again...and I promised that I would be healthy and not diet, and be active but not crazy at the gym. I have a triathlon next weekend, and I can now say I am ready. I kept my promise and I feel good. I am thankful I have a husband who supports my efforts and inspires me everyday....he reminds me to put myself first!

River looks pretty good too! Don't mind the orange nose...he just had some sweet potatoes!
