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!

Completely different, yet both utterly amazing.

You live right by Kailua beach? I'm so jealous...
I went there last month for the first time and it's gorgeous. It was my favorite place on Oahu.

I came across your page and decided to say hello. Looks like you live in Kailua. My sister lives there as well, been there since 2006. My daughter and I went out over Thanksgiving 2007 and it was so beautiful. Anyway, you look fabulous. Have you reached your goal yet? Good luck with all.
