Hexeengel Liebeslied

Hello, I've just joined. My husband and I started on Slim Fast together almost a month ago, and I'm proud to say I've lost between 15 and 20 pounds. Here are a few of my stats...

Age: 23
Height: 5'1" (on a good day :-P)
Weight before starting SF: around 230 (not certain, we didn't own a scale until recently)
Current weight: at last weighing, 215
Goal weight: anywhere between 150 and 180

Other: Part of my weight gain was from carrying our son (he's 14 months old now), I gained about 30 pounds (I was about 180 before getting pregnant). But since his birth, I put on another 20 pounds (which was partially due to the fact that I had an emergency C-section which subsequently becamse infected and serverly limited my ability to be active. That explains some of it, but doesn't excuse these many months when I have been able to be more active). I felt so ugly. My sex drive all but disappeared. Almost none of my clothes fit so I was always wearing my husband's (eapecially pants, he had to give me a couple pairs so I had something to wear besides my left-over pregnant-clothes). My husband also recognized that he needed a change too (plus he and a friend are going to start training to be Ultimate Fighters), so one day early this month we got Slim Fast shakes and bars and have been careful about our calorie and fat intake since.

I've noticed that I'm less hungry during the day, I eat a lot fewer snacks. We go on walks almost every morning before my husband goes to work, and at least twice a week my mother and I got for walks as well. I'm proud of my progress, but I know more still needs to be made.

And just a final note on my goal weight; I am proud to be a voluptuous, curvy woman. I have an hour-glass figure, with a 38DD chest, naturally broad hips and shoulders, (comparitively) small waist, and a J-Lo/Beyonce-worthy ghetto booty. My husband loves women shaped like me more than any other kind, so I definitely don't want to lose those features. But I do recognize that 230 was too much. I weighed 180 when he met me, and getting back to that, and maybe a little smaller, is my ideal.
