Molly – age 29. I am married and have 3 children under two years old.
I have been married since 2005. Since then, I have gained a whopping 80 lbs.! I would like to blame having 3 kids, in such a short period of time, on my weight gain, but I can’t. The fact is, my job got more sedentary, I started to cook more pastas and starchy meals and I slacked off on working out. The pounds just packed on, even before I started having kids.
I have bounced around the scale my entire adult life. I have tried a lot of “diets” and gone through cycles of working out but, I have never stuck to them. Now that I am a mother and have to chase after 3 little ones, I realize how important it is for me to set a good example for my children. That includes eating healthy and staying active. So that is what I am doing now.
