2015 Update:
It took me about a year to lose 80 poungs. Then, after a full year of maintenance, I gained about 30 pounds back over the 3rd year. Now I'm getting serious again and getting back to my maintenance weight!




I want to lose the weight the right way, through a nutritious diet and exercise. I want this to become a lifestyle for myself and my family so we can be healthy together!

Fitness Minutes: 34,878

My Goals:
New goals in 2015:
1. Lose at least 25 pounds to be back at maintenance.
2. Family physical activities twice/week.
3. Personal workouts 4-5 times/week.
4. Cut out treat foods to only once/week.

Old goals from 2011 (all achieved by Aug. 2012 and maintained except #1: lost 80 pounds instead):
1. Lose 100 pounds.
2. Become more active outside: sports, camping, biking, hiking, etc.
3. Give up fast food and soda.
4. Run on the beach with my son without feeling self-conscious or having to stop to catch my breath.
5. Do 10 real push-ups.
6. Use my elliptical for an hour.
7. Size 8 pants.

My Program:
I am trying to consume an about 1200-1500 calories/day of balanced, nutritionally dense food. My family mostly eats organic and unprocessed foods. I aim to do 30 minutes of exercise at least 4-5 days/week, and I also walk about 1.5 miles to/from work most days of the week. My family also does physical activities together, like bike riding, walking, and playing games outside.

Personal Information:
I live in New Orleans with my husband and son. We've recently moved back home from Minneapolis, which I loved! We were very healthy and active there and are trying to maintain that while being in the Big Easy, the land of food and laziness! I work as an accountant. I enjoy spending time with my family; we go to the zoos, museums, parks, and any other places and events we can find.

Thanks for your comments on my pictures!

That's awesome that you have your septum pierced, too! I haven't noticed it in your pics, though! Its funny, I quite often forget I have it, since I've had it so long! I was at a spa yesterday (girls' weekend) and realized that I haven't taken it out in 8 years! (I've had it for 15.)

Any other piercings?

If it's worked before, I'm sure it will work again!! Just don't give up! Maybe you can also do more intense cardio? Or incorporate a strength training regime? Mix it up a bit!

Before, I was easily losing 3-4 pounds a week. That lasted a long time! Now, I've been at about 2 pounds a week for the past month. I'm glad the weight is still coming off though!

Keep up the great work!

That is very cool that we have similar goals! Congrats on the approximate 60 pound loss so far! I think we can definitely motivate each other! Have you noticed your weight loss slowing down recently? Mine most definitely has over the past 2 weeks. I'm not discouraged, just annoyed! And yes, I am no where near 5'9'', I'm only 5'2''.

Thank you so much for your encouragement on my 5K blog! I really appreciate it so much! I am still "high" from it! I feel so much stronger and it has totally put my attitude on the right track. I can't wait to do more! Thanks so much!
