I'm Andrea - homegrown in Boulder, CO. Currently transplanted in Colorado Springs, CO.

Babies and PTSD has wrecked havoc on my weight and self image. But it is now time to put a stop to it. I am ready and willing to take the steps needed to start living in a way that I want to live for the rest of my life.

And the truth is that weight loss is only part of my personal revolution:
- I want to learn to love moving my body, not just force myself to excersize.
- I want to learn to love cooking and establish the habit of prepairing the vast majority of our meals from scratch.
- I want to eventually grow a large portion of our food. It is important to me to ween us off of BigAg as much as possible. What I can't grow I will try to source locally.
- I want to cultivate a community of friends. I had started to form some great friendships when we lived in Kansas, But upon moving back to Colorado I found that I had a hard time 'clicking' with people. But humans are social beings and I can't keep making the excuse that being a stay-at-home mom without daytime transportation = no friends.

As important as loosing the weight is, I know that if I don't focus my efforts more broadly and work on some of these other issues, I will find my self yo-yoing. So heres to a new me!
