About Me:

I am a 30 year old mother to three children ages two, five, and seven. I have been overweight most of my adult life. Each pregnancy left me with an extra 15 to 20 pounds. My heaviest weight was a recent 237 pounds. I decided enough was enough, I will not hit 240 pounds. I (re)started my weight loss journey on March 1st and have dropped about 15 pounds. During this time, there was about a month when I did absolutely nothing towards losing weight (got evicted and we were homeless for a bit). I am happy to say I am actively focusing on eating better and slowly introducing activity into my sedentary lifestyle. I have tried dieting many times, now I am changing my lifestyle to be more fit and healthy so I can grow old enough to meet my great grandchildren!

The goals I'm working toward:

  • 140 pounds
  • Drink water!!!!
  • Eat healthy
  • Exercise regularly

I haven't felt comfortable with my weight since:

I have always felt like the fat kid. It wasn't until after I'd given birth to my first child that I truly started to be self conscious and disgusted at where I'd let me weight go to.

My favorite healthy food:

VEGGIES! I love love love veggies, I struggle with the time it takes to prep them.

My guiltiest pleasure:

Anything gooey, cheesy, and chocolatey.

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I want to be around to at least meet my great grandchildren.

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Limit soda to one per week.
  • Using fat free feta cheese instead of colby.
  • Having 100 calorie cookie packs when a chocolate craving hits.

My favorite activity at the gym is:

Weight training. I LOVE switching between the machines and circuit training my muscles. I LOVE to push myself to the brink of exhaustion. Alas, I can't afford a gym at the moment.

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • Teaching my kids healthy food habits.
