Kailua Beach - I can walk here from our house
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm a happily married 30-year-old woman, living in beautiful Hawaii with my wonderful husband, our son Benjamin, and our dog. I used SP to lose 15 pounds over five months in 2007, and it was great. Our son Benjamin was born in 2009, so of course I put weight on over the course of the pregnancy. I've successfully lost all of the baby weight, but would still like to lose another 10 lbs. Now that I am no longer nursing, my metabolism has slowed down, and caring for a 1-year-old makes it difficult to get to the gym. I try to squeeze in exercise where ever I can - walking the dog, hiking while wearing Ben, doing exercise DVDs early in the morning before he wakes up. However, I know that what I really need to focus on is tracking my food and staying in my caloric range. That is what helped me achieve success last time, and I know it will work again.
We live on the island of O'ahu but are going to Maui for Thanksgiving with our best friends, and I would like to be at my goal weight of 125 lbs by that point. I know I can do it, I just have to stay focused! So here we go - wish me luck - and I hope to share the journey with you!

I'm originally from Virginia, but like many Virginia girls, I married a sailor. :)
I am an avid reader. Two MUST READ novels:
The Time Traveler's Wife
The Kite Runner
Completely different, yet both utterly amazing.

Well congratulations!!! I hope that the pregnancy is going well, besides the lack of appetite. Are you still enjoying Oahu?
Our deployment will be over early next year, although he will still be in Hawaii for a few months after that. He'll be done with the Army in May, which I am looking forward to. I'm glad to hear that there is a good chance Casey will be around for the first baby year...I hope he doesn't end up having to go to Afghanistan.
Other than that, not too much is new here! I start student teaching next semester, and then will hopefully be moving down to Baltimore when my husband comes back, but that still seems pretty far away :)

Hey! I just saw your comment! I don't know if you're still on here, but I hope you're doing well. I'm glad you are so enjoying Hawaii! My husband will be home from deployment next year and I am hoping to out during my spring break.
Oh, and I'm glad you enjoyed the Big Island, it is my favorite, I could go back there again and again!
