Hi Everybody! My name is Caitlin. I have been working out on and off for several years now but fell off the wagon many times. My weight has yo-yo'ed over the past decade with me gaining and losing the same 35 pounds a few times now.

After I turned 30, I realized that I spent much of my 20's struggling with weight and decided that I wasn't going to struggle anymore. On March 1, 2009, using the fall vacation to Mexico as motivation, I started a new way of life... without the struggle.

One of the hardest things I had to deal with in previous attempts to lose weight was my obsession with the scale. I relied too much on what the scale said when determining if my efforts were successful or a failure. It made losing weight stressful and it was not something I wanted to go through again. So this time I decided to not weigh myself- just eat right and exercise regularly.

It's been a slow process. Without seeing the one and two pound decreases on the scale, I have to have faith that my efforts will result in bigger changes spaced out in longer intervals. After all, you don't drop a pants size in a week...

My Goals:
My initial goal was to get in better shape for my fall vacation. But now that I have seen and felt all the positive effects of better fitness, I want to optimize it.


My Program:
I had committed to working out at least three times a week for 35 weeks starting in March and ending in October, just before I left for Mexico. Now that I am back from Mexico, I am going to continue the same workout schedule for now. I'd like to start ChaLEAN Extream in the coming weeks but I am so into Turbo Jam right now.



Personal Information:
By day, I am a mild mannered software licensing specialist for an IT solutions provider. By night, I am a mysterious crime fighter who swoops down just in the nick of time to right what's wrong. :)


Other Information:
I am a Turbo Jam fanatic!
