My name is Lyndsey. I am a 33 year old mom to a 8 year old girl. I have a loving boyfriend of 3 years and a great family. I work as a District Court Clerk in the Northwest which doesn't require a lot of movement throughout the day. I did gain quite a bit of weight with my 2002 pregnancy, however, it was after giving birth that I continued to gain weight. I am very proud of my accomplishments in life and the hurdles that I have tackled but this is the one last thorn in my nemisis so to speak. :) Even though this is my body, it's an exterior and I don't feel that it speaks the truth of the "real me". I know the person inside and she is not THIS. I am going to find her and this is my journey to do just that....


"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." unknown

Member Since: 6/4/2006

Fitness Minutes: 145

My Goals:
My ultimate goal weight is 160-165 lbs. I know this is still considered "over-weight" for my height 5'6 but I like the curves. :)

I will have mini goals along the way...when one is met--I will make another.


1. GOAL--250 LBS (I was this weight the day I gave birth)

My Program:
My program is basically eat less, move more. I find that eating smaller meals throughout the day helps and NEVER skip breakfast. I also try to drink a lot of water. I am staying away from diet soda as it's just as bad as regular. And once a week if I want something--I will have it. Gotta live.

Right now I am focusing on walking every day. I am doing 2 miles right now and look forward to adding more as I feel better.
