The Lord is my strength!!!

Let's see, well I guess I'll just start at the beginning:) I was a skinny little runt as a child and as I hit the teen years I slowly started gaining weight until I hit a dreadful 190 pounds! I new I was overweight, but instead of doing something about it, I just continued to use food as my comfort.

Let's see, well I guess I'll just start at the beginning:) I was a skinny little runt as a child and as I hit the teen years I slowly started gaining weight until I hit a dreadful 190 pounds! I new I was overweight, but instead of doing something about it, I just continued to use food as my comfort. When I turned 17 I had finally had it with the big shirts and not feeling comfortable in bathing suits and shorts, so I decided to do something about it..however, I didn't go about it in a very healthy way. I cut my calorie intake to 300 hundred calories a day and if I just couldn't handle it and binged on stuff, after wards I would just make myself throw up. I started exercising like crazy, started running and was seeing great results, at least in how I looked. But, even when I was down to 125 pounds, I still wasn't satisfied. I grew up in a Christian home, but at this point had completely walked away from everything I knew to be true. I didn't end my weight loss there, even though I was wearing size 4s & 6s, I wasn't happy. I continued with my unhealthy way of dieting and quickly went down to about 110 pounds, which for my 5'8" frame, was not very healthy, I was wearing a loose size 2 and guess what I wasn't happy! I finally realized that the only way to be happy was to get my life right with the Lord and I finally did, but must confess that I still struggled with how I looked. I stayed within a 5 pound range of 130 pounds from there and all up till I got pregnant with my first child..... After the births of my 3 children I initially lost about 25 pounds, but after a few months gained that and then some back! I joined Biggest Loser Club in Jan 08 at 179 pounds and have lost 20 pounds up till now, but most of that was lost in the first few months. I must confess for the last couple I haven't done much of anything and am ready to change that!!! So here goes nothing! Oh and I am married to the love of my life, Tim and have 3 awesome children...Sofie(8/5/02), Rylie(3/8/04) & Noah(6/13/07). They keep me busy, but I do love every minute of it! It does however, present some obstacles, in trying to get time to exercise and I am often tempted by their snacks and will confess to finishing off their dinners when they push their plates aside:) I do know, that I have a BIG trip planned this summer and I want to look as good as possible for it, so I need to get as much accomplished in the next month and a half as I can! Not to mention my anniversary is in August and I'd love to look smokin for that!

Hmmm... right now, not so much, but my goal is to track my calories and only allow a maximum of 1300 a day. I'm also going to try to get in at least an hour of exercise a day, maybe more some days when I have the time and maybe others a little less. Most of all I'm relying on Jesus to help me and my awesome group of women known as the PINK POSSE!!!!!!
