Fitbit http://www.fitbit.com/user/23M27V Feel free to Friend me there too. I am wife to a wonderful man Travis, who I met after I already had kids and mom of 2 kiddos, One with special needs (18 when I started here now almost 23(omg I feel old)) . My life revolves around my hubby and my daughter. Work and school. What you See is What You get!!!! I havent always been big. At 18 I got pregnant had a misscarriage and gained some weight. Made it to 160 and I thought I was huge. I got rid of that fairly quickly. Heck I was young! By the time I lost that I had met my "kids donor" (haha) and ended up pregnant again. Gained to 160 again. I lost all that weight then got pregnant with the 2nd one when Miss Sam was only 8 months old. Gained so much more weight with Tiny that I was at 172 pounds when I had him. I knew that I was big but was depressed and didnt care to get rid of it. Who was I kidding. Met my now hubby 13 years ago. My weight went down after 3 years of doing it the wrong way. I got to 135 before getting a sit down job and doing no more excersize. Lost that job in 2002 and eventually gained all the way up to 195 pounds. Didnt hit 200 pounds but got really close. Now you know me and my weight gain/loss story. This Time Im doing it right! Biggest loser Challenge - White Tigers Summertime team. Up again 12-29-2016 -186 down 20 in 2016 12-06-2012 - 179 pounds 8/20/09 : 149.5 I Wanted to be between 140 and 145 right here. My 11th anniversary. Bought brand new scale 10/20 it says 161.2.

    I turned down GS Cookies!!!!!!!!!!

    My Sil buzzed me online last night via messanger before I shut the computer off due to storm and told me that my 5 year old niece was selling Girl Scout cookies.

    She told me the exact kinds that she had and then said if I ordered that she could ship them to me. Well this is her first year selling them but my other nieces who are now 11 and 14.. Quit selling 3 years ago so I havent had the chance to buy them.. So while on the phone with Travis last night and still talking to her on computer. He reminded me of my lack of will power when it comes to cookies and the fact that he didnt want to order crumbs with them coming in the mail.

    What I neglected to tell my husband is that I was trying to explain to her the reason that I wasnt buying them before he said he didnt want them.. she is big and doing nothing about it and trying to tell me that the cookies wont hurt if I just eat a few. YEAH RIGHT

    1-7-08 This past week has been very Rough. I didnt take the time to think about my elliptical and just thought I could do an amount of miles a day. Well I will be rethinking my excersize to see if I can find a way to kick up my work out but not worry so much about mileage on the Elliptical.

    I will start first with 20 minutes a day and try for 20 minutes 2 times daily tomorrow. If not the setting for 20 minutes I will burn 300 compared to resistance 2 only for that amount of time which is 251 calories burned.

    I will keep everyone posted
