My name is Cat I am 34 years old and I live in the great state of Texas. I have 3 little boys and a wonderful husband whom I love more than life itself. I strive every day to be a better wife and mother to my family and proudly wear the title SUPERMOM. I guess you could say I am pretty lucky.

Our three boys are the light of my life and the apple of my eye. Our oldest son is 13 and the twin boys are 11. Both of my twins are on the Autism spectrum and one has Epilepsy so being a Mom of Special Needs kids is definitely Stressful!!

I have struggled with my weight ever since I gave birth to my first child in 1997. Prepregnancy I weighed around 135 pounds. This was about a size 6 for me. After my first child I could only get back down to a size 9 and shortly after that I got pregnant with twins. I gained up to 209 during my pregnancy with the twins and have only gotten back down to 147 ONCE since then.

I have gained and lost the same 30-40 pounds at least a dozen times in the last 10 years. I have tried every "diet" known to man and even made up a few creative ones of my own!! Weight Watchers, Nutri-System, South Beach, Atkins, Pritkin, Perricone, you name it!! I finally realized that what I needed wasn't in some book. It was inside of ME, and that any "diet" was only a temporary fix. What I needed was a new lifestyle!!

I'm starting fresh again with a new healthy lifestyle. My ultimate goal is not so much to be "skinny" but to just feel good in my own skin, be more active, and eat what my body needs.

I just turned 34 and it finally hit me that I'm not getting any younger and I want the body I am in to look good and feel good for many more years to come.

I'm striving to eat more healthy foods and fruits and vegetables and get 6 days a week of exercise. I'm currently using several of Beachbody's programs and mixing them up as I get bored VERY easily. I also drink Shakeology every day once a day as a meal replacement.
