Introductory Post

Hello, my name is Rebeca and I am from Spain but God´s providence has lead us to Toronto. I met Danielle 11 years ago when they arrived to MatarĂ³ with little Isaiah to help as missionaries in the work there. She kept on having babies and all had to be boys...they were the cutest thing ever. I learnt a lot from her and that helped me when I had my own babies. I still have my "On Becoming Baby Wise" that she always recommended, what a treasure!
I have 1 boy and 3 girls, ages 8, 7, 5 and 2 and a half. I homeschool (also got that from Danielle). When expecting I was never big and went back to my pre pregnancy weight quickly, every single time got out of the hospital in regular clothes. After my fourth one I started losing weight but did not get rid of it as quick. My sister is a nutritionist and I told her I was thinking to diet and ask if she would do an eating plan for me. That was only 6 months after the birth, I know it may sound ridiculous to some of you but those pounds were really bothering me. And she said something I will not forget. She said "if you do not lose this weight know you will end up thinking and believing this is the way you are". In 6 weeks 10 pounds were gone, end of story. I have always enjoyed exercising and loved healthy eating, that has helped me to "remain the same" except for the blue under my eyes =)
Also, after having my fourth I started running with my dad. I love it! But sometimes, many times, or most of the times it is hard to find the time to work out. I have never completely stopped but I have not been consistent, and I want to. But not for two months, I want it for life. I am very excited and encouraged and hope to see results by the end of the challenge. I do not think I will be losing much weight but I want to tone up and be stronger and feel good. May the Lord bless all of you in what He has entrusted you. Nice meeting you all!
