I'm back again! I got engaged on Christmas and definitely want to be in better shape, not only for my special day, but also for our future. I have really let myself go and need to make some changes. I signed up for a gym membership back in September and my goal is to start actually using it on a regular basis. My first small goal is to lose 10 - 12 pounds so I feel better and more confident for our engagement pictures. I am ready!!

Starting Over...yet again! I fell off track and gained back all the weight I had lost. That sent me into a funk and I lost all my motivation. Now I'm back and ready to do it again - this time the right way. I've learned not to let a set back completely de-rail all my progress. I have to keep moving forward and making positive changes that will make all the difference in the long run.

Hello! I am a 34 year old carrying around some extra weight and I am looking for some support and encouragement to lose the weight and get in shape! It seems as I get older, I keep picking up a few pounds here and a few pounds there and it's time for it to stop!

I love food (I am a total carb junkie - bread and pasta are my weakness)! I am really working on portion control. I am also pretty out of shape but am slowly working on that. I have never been one to stick to exercising - I usually make it three or four days and quit. I am trying to make it more fun by doing things like Zumba and using Exerbeat on the Wii. I have started wearing a pedometer and am aiming to get at least 10,000 steps in each day. I don't succeed every day but I am getting better!

I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
