I'm not a success story yet, but I hope to be getting there soon! My transformation so far is my profile pic, left pic July 17 right pic yesterday morning (October 3).

Edited to add: I'm a mother of two girls, ages 5 & 6. who were both C section. I've never been able to get the belly pooch down so I'm hoping it will completely go away someday!

That's even better. I'm a huge fan of making new goals after achieving others. You, momma bear, are awesome.

I will tell you my story and you decide if it is a success.
I got pregnant at 18 yrs old and a week before my 19th I had my Son..Baby 1 175 to 298 pounds.
I got pregnant again at 21 and had my daughter at 22..Baby 2 298 to 185 back up to 289 pounds.
I got pregnant again at age 24 and had my Twins..Babies 3-4 289 to 164 back up to 250 pounds.
I spent 4 yrs on a IUD called Marina and couldn't lose any weight and got real sick on it..went from 250 down to 198 back to 218
I got the IUD removed after trying doctor prescribed weightloss methods and just getting sicker and got pregnant with my 5th baby. At age 28 I got pregnant and at age 29 I had my 5th child and had my tubes removed. I went from 218 and in labor I was 278 pounds..I then lost to 264 pounds by May and started MFP and now I am 239 pounds and going down .25 to 2 pounds a week again. It is going to be my last effort to get to my goal weight. Is it a success? Yes, because I lost over 300 pounds and working on losing over 400 pounds. One pound at a time. I will be here for 2 yrs again and this time I am ok with it because I plan on being here as long as I can.

edited: I also had 2 c-sections and 3 vaginal births.

wow! you mamas rock my socks off. I hope to be contributing to this thread sometime!

You mommas rock! I need some inspiration today. At the beginning of the year I lost 15 lbs..which was half way to my goal. And after some major life changes (all good ones...even if they are stressful ones) I've gained it all back. My life has changed dramatically. My family of two little guys, husband and dog moved from the Midwest to California. I'm no longer a working momma (where I worked out at our workplace gym every day) but a stay at home momma. I'm loving it...but eating everything in sight! How do you not do that? And how do you work out?
I'm needing some serious motivation and tips. Any friends and help or advice welcomed.
Thanks ladies!

Maybe you're losing body fat and gaining muscles which is why your weight is stable. Have you been tracking your measurements? I think you have a lovely shape right now regardless.
