I have had self-image problems my entire life. I was always average in weight, but during my first pregnancy I put on more weight than was healthy, and didn't lose much of it. Same thing after my second pregnancy. After my third pregnancy, I knew I had to do something. Being 5'5" and weighing in at 204lbs post pregnancy was not ideal! I followed a strict, doctor supervised diet, and lost 60lbs! This was an extreme diet, that taught me a lot about my overall health, it was not a lifestyle change. I have gained back 15lbs. Which isn't bad, considering this diet was designed for quick weight loss, and not as a permanent change. I am on a learning curve, and have decided to make a permanent lifestyle change! I want to lose the 15lbs that I gained back, but I am not interested in fad or extreme diets. I want to do this on my own terms! There have been a lot of bumps in the road, I lose a few pounds, and gain them back, but I am learning so much about good health and about healthy choices! I have certainly developed an appreciation for my health and well-being. Now I have to find the motivation to stay with it, and to make sure I get some exercise in every day. Not always easy with 3 small children and a daycare to run. Hopefully with the support of this community, I can do it! Afterall, 15lbs isn't a lot. I know I can do this!

My Goals:
My only goal is to be comfortable in my own skin. I don't need to be skinny, I need to be healthy, and I need to feel good.

I have lost 60lbs on a doctor supervised diet, but it was not a lifestyle change. It was meant to lose weight. I want a lifestyle change to lose my last 15lbs.

Ultimately I want my kids to learn from my example on a healthy lifestyle so they don't have to worry about their health like I did.


My Program:
I am making healthier choices. I am making healthier substitutions and trying new things! And even my husband likes some of these foods that I have discovered!



Personal Information:
I live in a small town in Central British Columbia.

I have a wonderfully supportive husband, and three amazing and inspiring children.

I do not have many friends, but I am blessed to have the ones that I do. I am very fulfilled.


Other Information:
I am a huge fan of books. I read most genres, but am picky about my authors. My favourites are Dean Koontz, Jim Butcher and George R.R. Martin

Once my kids are sleeping, I tune into some of my favourite shows like The Walking Dead, NCIS, Supernatural, OITNB, Breaking Bad.

I could not imagine my life without my music! I love classic rock and one of my favourite solo piano composers is Yiruma.
