Hello Everyone... My name is Artesia and I live in Lafayette, IN. Stephanie and I were friends way back in junior high and high school and kept in touch via our blogs. This is my second challenge. I lost around 20 lbs after the birth of my son (see the little guy down below) and was able to reach a healthy goal weight. Shortly after he was born we moved to the Midwest, I went back to school to get an MBA, and had a baby so all that weight came right back.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes so in total I only gained 9 lbs this pregnancy. Having an almost 9 lb baby that came off quick! Now I just need to focus on the healthy eating habits I learned during my pregnancy to lose another 20.
Oh yeah and I have 5 kids and a wonderful husband who stays home with them.
