"Yeah, I'm excited that I finally reached my goal weight but I also wanted to point out that it took me four years to get here.

"I had an easy time losing the weight after my first pregnancy, but after the second one, the extra pounds were just hanging on."

Holly was afraid that a diet might change her mood or leave her unable to concentrate.
"I tried to lose weight just by working out and moderately watching what I eat at first, but even though I was doing really challenging workouts almost every day, nothing was budging," she said in her refreshingly honest post.
Finally, a year ago, Holly met with a nutritionist and she started making progress.
"I had to know what foods worked with my metabolism before a diet became effective," she wrote. "Only recently was I able to incorporate both a diet and exercise into my day. For a while, it was a struggle because it seemed I only had time for one: workout OR make sure I had all the foods I need to stick to my diet."
She continued, "I just wanted to share that as kind of a disclaimer to this picture because I know there are so many moms out there who feel bad because the don't always lose the weight quickly. The same methods don't necessarily work for everyone. Just remember, if you haven't made it to your physical goal yet, it's because you're a boss with a million things going on and you are probably killing it more than you think you are."
Former All-Star Wayne Simmonds drawing interest ahead of free agency .
The 32-year-old scored just eight goals in 68 games this past season playing for the New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres after an extremely disappointing finish to the 2018-19 season with the Nashville Predators. Once one of the best power forwards in the entire league, Simmonds was a perennial 30-goal candidate with oodles of physicality and leadership. In 2015-16 he reached a career-high with 32 goals and 60 points, while also racking up 192 hits for the Philadelphia Flyers. That kind of player is difficult to find in today’s game, but even in the case of Simmonds himself, it may no longer exist.
