My big, scary weight loss journey!

Hi! My name is Ashleen. I am 25 years old and I live in western Montana. I have spent 25 years making excuses for why I'm not living the life I deserve. I'm done with excuses!

As of August 8, 2011 I weigh 239lbs. This is a number I will never see again. I am done being miserable in my own skin. I am responsible for my own reality, and I'm changing channels!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to have a healthy lifestyle. To wake up every day and know that my body is not going to limit the days possibilities.
-I want have kids and B and I both know that one of the main reasons we aren't trying to have any right now is because I can't be the mom I want to be. This will change.
- I want to feel sexy and confident all the time. I want to feel like B is bursting with pride with me on his arm, not afraid he's embarrassed.
- I want to take a backpacking trip to Moon Lake in Glacier National Park. I went on a backpacking trip there the summer I turned 16 with a girls group I was in. It was the most extreme experience I have ever put my body through. It was also the most beautiful place I could have ever imagined and I have never felt closer to "God" or myself.
-I want to get involved in theater again. I've made excuses for years, but really I'm too embarrassed to audition.

My Program:
I am finding ways to be active everyday. I always find excuses not to exercise, but I never turn down dancing, a hike, kickball, etc.

I have recently discovered that I have a gluten sensitivity, so I need to avoid anything with gluten in order to feel my best. Beyond that I'm going to focus on portion size, keep a food journal, choose whole foods over processed junk, and find foods that truly satisfy.

Personal Information:
I am 25 years old, born, raised and living in western Montana. I have an incredible life with the man I love, B, and our wiener dog. I am a 9-1-1 Dispatcher for our county. I am also an independent consultant for Arbonne International. It is an incredible company and I am excited to be a part of it. I am passionate about theater, travel, my family and friends, and a great hot bath!

Other Information:
I am currently reading:

The Road- By Cormac McCarthy

I am always looking for new books to read and LOVE reading books recommended to me!
