Welcome! My name is Angie and I'm 40 years old. I am the mother of two boys, ages 17 and 12, and have been married for 18 years. I work full-time at a local university as an admissions officer, part-time at a local gym as a beginner CrossFit instructor, and I go to school part-time.

I've been overweight since I was about 13 years old. Before that, I was always the skinny girl and was told I was too thin and should eat! Apparently I decided to take that advice to heart.

I was introduced to CrossFit in June 2009 and I fell in love instantly. It is challenging, fun, and the workouts change from day to day. Unfortunately, it has taught me that weight loss IS 80% diet. I very seldom miss a workout, but my eating has not been where it should be. I am changing that and will continue to work on that.

Member Since: 12/4/2006

Fitness Minutes: 23,522

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get to 140, or somewhere thereabouts. I've never been thin in my adult life, so I truly do not know at what weight I will feel comfortable.

1st goal - 240
2nd goal - 235
3rd goal - 230
4th goal - 225
5th goal - 220
more to follow...

My Program:
I will be following a mostly Paleo way of eating with some modifications to make it fit my lifestyle and work for ME.

Exercise - CrossFit at least 3-4 days/week; 30 minutes of cardio

Personal Information:
I'm from west central Illinois and I've lived in the same small town all of my life (boring, eh?). After having kids and raising them in a nice, safe community, I wouldn't have it any other way.

The "Teddi" part of my name here is because I collect teddy bears...not because I have a strange fixation on lingerie or something. I swear!

Other Information:
My favorite types of books are mysteries, thrillers, and anything that deals with forensic science.

    Hi msteddi and welcome to the Never Known a Normal Weight team!
    by your profile you like mysteries, thrillers and anything with forensic science...does that mean you like to watch CSI: as well??
    I'm a huge fan!

    Have a great day!

    Hi Msteddi! I love your sense of humor. The only problem is that Tony Stewart is going to have to choose between the two of us once he realizes he's in love with both of us! ha!!!! ;o) All I can say is may the best woman win. *grin*

    Good luck to you on your weight loss journey. We are both in the same boat. I've never known "thin" my adult life either. I found a husband who loves me for who I am, not how I look and then everything went south fast. I was 180 in high school and hated my weight then. I'd give my eye teeth to be at 180 again. I'll get there and beyond!

    Hello MSTEDDI - Thanks for leaving the lovely comment on my page.

    I was reading thru your page and was quite impressed -- a teddy bear collector AND forensic science fan -- quite a combination!!!

    Love that photo of you and your two boys under the monster truck - real cool!

    Hi! I hope all is going well for you...I've only been on here for just over a month and there are tons of resources and supportive people here. BTW, I noticed on your page that you collect teddy bears. I used to collect Steiff bears. I haven't bought any in a long time but I just love them!
    Best of luck,
