Training for Life

I've struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. In high school and the first half of college, I was overweight/borderline obese. Since then, I've managed to gain a little bit of control, but I doubt this is every something that will come easily to me.

I became a mom in February! I also gained 50 lbs in the nine months leading up to that. I'm now at/below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to drop a few more before I go into maintenance mode. I think I'll likely have to ...
I've struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. In high school and the first half of college, I was overweight/borderline obese. Since then, I've managed to gain a little bit of control, but I doubt this is every something that will come easily to me.

I became a mom in February! I also gained 50 lbs in the nine months leading up to that. I'm now at/below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to drop a few more before I go into maintenance mode. I think I'll likely have to track my calories for years before I get the hang of all of this. It's totally worth it though, especially if I can be a good role model for my daughter. I'm hoping that all this comes a little more naturally to her, though, and that she never has to struggle with her weight and body image the way I have.

Update: I'm about 10 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to transition into maintenance. I still don't really know where a happy weight for me is, so even though I though I'd maintain at 145, my body seems to want to keep dropping the weight. That's cool. I'm going to keep tracking my food and just roll with it :)

I'm a mom x 2! My son was born in June 2014, and though I gained another 55+lbs while I was pregnant with him, I've lost it all again. Now trying to decide where to stop the weight loss and start maintenance, and trying to sneak in as much running as a working mom of two can!

Qualify for Boston!!

My Program:
Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Running is good for the soul.

Personal Information:
I'm a working mom with a stay-at-home husband. I run before work so if I look tired, I AM! It's all worth it, though. There's nothing quite like the feeling of knowing your body can run for 2+hours straight.

Other Information:
Some people are natural runners. Other people just run.
