Weight loss bloggers

I am happy to announce the third and final winner of the Weight Loss Blogger Contest is Arya. Visit her at the button below.

This was her entry email:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be apart of the weight loss bloggers. I used to love my body. I never thought I was skinny but I was happy.

After I got married we started trying for our first child. shortly after I got pregnant & I gained about 35 lbs. after having my first I lost all of the gained weight and got back down to my pre-pregnancy weight (234 lbs) and kept it all off.

I got pregnant again with my 2nd child and gained another 35 lbs but after having him I lost the weight again and kept it off. Within about a month or so of having my second I was pregnant again, but when my husband was called to Iraq 22 weeks into my pregnancy I lost the baby & had to have a D&C. When my husband came home on R&R leave I got pregnant again but lost that one too, but I had 2 small boys and didn't have time to worry about things I couldn't change and focused on them and I managed during the almost 2 years hubby was gone, to keep off my weight and stay at my pre-pregnancy weight.

I got pregnant with my 3rd child right after he got back (with in days). I gained 30lbs with that pregnancy & shortly after having her I went on the Mirana birth control and gained another 30lbs on top of the baby weight I never lost. Found out that Mirana has the same hormones as the Depo shot and if I had known that I would never EVER have gone on it.

Fast forward to now, I am no longer on the mirana, my youngest is 4 and I have had 3 miscarriages in the past 7 months while trying to conceive our 4th child. I am still carrying the 60lbs of extra weight from my last baby and excess weight mirana packed on and due to stress of not being able to keep a baby inside me I gained another 11 lbs, bringing my actual weight to 305 pounds.

This is the heaviest I have ever been and I want to lose 71 lbs to get back to 234 pounds, the weight I was the happiest at. I would love to have a support network to share my success and failures as I try to lose this mound of weight. I hope that I get chosen but if not I will still continue to try to lose the weight and keep my self accountable. Although it would be much easier to be accountable if I had others that were

I know life is a hard road and with this extra weight it's even harder. I want to be able to play with my kids like I used to be able to & I want to be happier with my body and be healthier and it's my goal this year to achieve weight loss & be the best me possible.

We hope to be able to encourage (and kick your butt, if need be) you along your journey! Let me know what I can do to help. Can't wait to get a prize package on its way to you! Stay in touch.

Don't forget to check in with our other weight loss bloggers. I will be doing a post once a week to let you know how they're doing. If for some reason they don't email me an update, I will just link to their blog post for that week.



Let's help keep them accountable!
