Hello, I am very excited to be here! I joined at the end of November 2009 and look forward to sharing my weight loss and healthy living journey with you!

Just a little about me...I'm a wife and mom and after years of maintaining my weight, I never worried about gaining weight. So I continued eating what I wanted and it never really mattered wether I exercised or not. I always seem to stay around the same weight. This was even AFTER having 3 kids. But after hitting 30 and being very stressed with life, I noticed some weight gain and it didn't come off as easily as it used to. I almost didn't recognize myself anymore. It felt terrible going to the store for larger pant sizes. I felt unhealthy, uncomfortable and I didn't like my body although my hubby still thought I was attractive. My clothes fit horribly and my midsection continued to grow. It was time for a change!

So in May of 2009 I began working out daily and by the end of the summer I lost many inches and about 20 lbs.

I hit a brick wall in 2011 and gained some of the weight back going from the 160's to 170's (mainly over the winter - I love holiday food). That scared me. I did NOT want to enter the 180's again. So I started back in March 2012 and have not stopped. I did hit a plateau and could not get past 160! I started a new program...12 week Live Fit Trainer which builds muscle and decreases fat over time. I am finally in the 150's which I haven't been in since maybe 2005 or 2006? I'm not sure anymore. It's been a long time :)

    Thank you for the wonderful words on my blog and my photos! I appreciate them very much. I remember when I didn't think it was possible and then BAM, just blew past that plateau and on to another challenge. Wish I would have "woke up" about 10 years earlier, but hey, it is what it is. Love your proflie pic and you can absolutely see the results of your weight loss through your face. Besides, it is a gorgeous pic of you. Thanks for add - stay in touch and keep on working towards your goals.

    Oh, yes, increase the protein (I was up to 1 gram per body weight) and removed all white carbs after 3pm, NO SALT and you would be amazed what happens in just two weeks. Good luck.
