I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.


Member Since: 2/21/2007

Fitness Minutes: 29,584

My Goals:
Get to a place where I am happy with my body.

At my heaviest I weighed 170lbs. I'd like to be between 125 and 135 in maintenance. **I'm 5'4" for reference**


My Program:
Limiting processed foods - trying for clean eating.

Make use of my home gym daily - the gym consists of a treadmill, Bowflex BodyTower, ab bench thing, and a Total Gym (a gift that we have yet to assemble).



Personal Information:
I'm from the Tacoma, WA area. I'm 26 years old and just married my best friend on 9/23/12. I am adjusting to life as someone trying to be healthy with a very busy schedule as well as adjusting to being a wife and stepmom.

    I have not done a 1/2 marathon before. I keep saying I'm going to and I start training but then I get derailed and decide I shouldn't. I just need to sign up for one, that will get my butt in gear.

    I am doing pretty well! The activities aren't counting as workouts really since the baby walks so very slow, but that is OK. I have regained about 6 lbs. I am slowly getting back in to tracking and all that. Hiking starts Sunday!!!

    Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below

    I am... Incredibly nervous about the race, thanks for asking ;) I have been slammed with some kind of cold and have been avoiding medicine since I am still breastfeeding. Soooo, I haven't ran since Sunday! I know I can handle the distance...
