I'm obviously Ariel....I've changed a lot since I was last on here. I got pregnant, stopped working out, stopped eating right, started drinking, and now I'm a single mom to my 2 year old daughter, Ava. I spend a lot of time working, drinking with friends, and taking care of her. It's hard for me to go to the gym because I don't want to wake her up any earlier and she's tired, grumpy, and hungry when I pick her up from daycare....so it's just easier to go home, drink beer, and try to deal with the terrible twos and attempt to clean my house. I want things to be different. I want to eat right again even though it takes more time, is more expensive, and harder to do...I also want to work out more than once every 1-2 weeks. We'll see how this all goes! I alos gave up alcohol for Lent so I think that's going to help with everything including my productivity.

-----Back Story 2010-------
My heaviest was my sophomore/junior year when I was around 150 at 5'3". I've been a Weight Watchers member since August 14, 2005. I reached my goal of 117 Thanksgiving week and I've been a Lifetime member since January 3, 2006. I have unfortunately yo-yo-ed. I was maintaining my weight, of 117-123 for about 2 years, but in the process became so obsessed that I became bulimic June 2008, my weight dropped down to 110. I was unhealthy and unhappy. After a lot of fighting myself and pain, I finally quit throwing up February 12, 2009. So I'm 5 years purge free! I got a tattoo on my one year anniversarylo9 that says, God is on your side follow him. There are MANY days when I think about going back to it, but I have to keep reminding myself that I CAN'T be where I was before.

I AM thankful for this, but because of an ankle injury lasting for since December of 2008 and because I have yet to completely get my binging under control, I've returned to 150. FORTUNATELY I'm MOSTLY muscle which was NOT the case before. I'm trying to get my weight to a MANAGEABLE 130 and wear jeans again!!!! This is my ULTIMATE goal!

Other than that, I'm a student at Indiana University Southeast. I'm in my fourth year and I'm an elementary education in my 2nd block of 5.

I'm a fitness instructor at the YMCA's of Southern Indiana in New Albany and Jeffersonville. I've been teaching since January of 2008. I teach Turbo Kick, Body Pump, Hip Hop Hustle, Cycling, Circuit, Abs, and Zumba. I work out anywhere from 2-5 hours everyday. I weight train about every other day. That's about all I do.

    Hi
    I’m dropping by all my friends today to say hi and offer a bit of encouragement. I hope all is well for you and you are well on the way to reaching your goals. I went up again but happily am on the way back down, running again so real happy with that even though I’m finding it so tough! Feel free to drop by my page and say hello or if you need support.
    Well happy weekend and happy summer. REACH FOR THE STARS!

    Congrats on all you've accomplished!! Very inspiring! My goal is to one day have abs although we'll see how that one goes!
    I wish I had as much time to exercise though! that's where I hit my barrier!
    Do you still do Weight watchers?
