Healthier living for a healthier me!

Hello, my name is Amber!

I try and concentrate on my strengths, my blessings, and all the good things in my life. It's worth it!

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance on 10/08/10 (my fourth wedding anniversary!) which totally changed the way I eat and look at food. I'm feeling better and finding out the random other foods that just don't sit well with me.

Hello, my name is Amber!

I try and concentrate on my strengths, my blessings, and all the good things in my life. It's worth it!

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance on 10/08/10 (my fourth wedding anniversary!) which totally changed the way I eat and look at food. I'm feeling better and finding out the random other foods that just don't sit well with me.

It's frustrating. Food allergies are readily accepted, but food intolerances are pushed to the side. Because so many people claim an "intolerance" when they are really just following a diet trend.

If I could eat gluten, I would. Gluten-free products try their best, but nothing beats the real thing. I'm still working on discovering the various things that trigger digestive pain for me.

Whatever your journey, whatever your path, I wish you success. Losing weight/getting healthy isn't easy, but it's worth it.

My Goals:
My goal is simply to be healthier. Losing the weight is a big motivator to treat my body better.


Then to continue on!

My Program:
My husband, Aubrey, and I like taking walks together.

We were going to quit the gym for the summer, but I was missing it terribly. There are just too many excuses for me without it. "It's too hot to work out" "I'm tired" etc. But once I'm at the gym; I'm there. All excuses must fade away because I'm paying for it darn it! I have to get my money's worth! Luckily another gym was running a deal so now we're back at the gym and it's not costing as much as before.

We also both enjoy yoga, pilates, and tennis.

Amber, congratulations on your 100 lbs loss! You look FABULOUS. I'm really proud of you, girlfriend. Keep it up! Now the hard part is keeping it off. I lost 70 lbs and gained 30! But I'm still here, exercising, and eating right, so hopefully I'll look good as you! Oh wait, you all ready do look better than me!

I hope that treating your thyroid will help with the kids direction. The thyroid can wreak havoc on all of our endocrine system functions, which can affect our ability to get pregnant! :( I'm sorry this has been such a long road for you! I pray that God shows you a peep of His playbook. That might help. LOL

My kids are busy bodies. I'm still a stay at home mom with my son .. who at this very moment has asked me the same question 14 times in 10 seconds. Sigh!

I haven't really taken much time for myself since my hysterectomy in 2010. It really broke my heart. But I'm coping. :) In a more positive manner now. Reaching how to moms, soon-to-be moms, and want-to-be moms. My hope is to help them see the beauty of Jesus' plan in their life, even if they are down-trodden with grief or worry.

At any rate, I'm glad to see you are doing so well at maintaining and you lost your 100 lbs!! I bet that accomplishment felt amazing! :)

I've been busy! LOL. My daughter started Kindergarten this year. My son is running me ragged. It's been super busy the past year! How have you been!?!?
