That's it! I'm taking control of my life!

Hi everyone! I am Michelle. I am 38 years old, have a wonderful husband, and 2 beautiful children. I have tried to lose weight a number of times before. This time I hope is the last time. I really want to lose weight so that I can see my children grow up. I don't want them growing up either without a mom at all or without a mom who can be active with them. I also don't want to be the big mommy.

My ultimate goal is to be around 160lbs. From my starting point that is a goal of 122 ...
Hi everyone! I am Michelle. I am 38 years old, have a wonderful husband, and 2 beautiful children. I have tried to lose weight a number of times before. This time I hope is the last time. I really want to lose weight so that I can see my children grow up. I don't want them growing up either without a mom at all or without a mom who can be active with them. I also don't want to be the big mommy.

My ultimate goal is to be around 160lbs. From my starting point that is a goal of 122 lbs weight loss. That is a lot. I plan on just taking thing in stages. Every 10 lbs will be a victory. I'll also be looking for those NSV (non-scale victories) like fitting into old cloths, fitting into seats at movie theaters easier, being able to go down the slide at the park more comfortably, etc... I think the NSVs are more important to me than the actual scale is. But to have those NSVs the scale does need to go down.

As far as exercise goals go, I am a runner, biker, walker, and triathlete. I have (as of July 14, 2015) completed 23 half marathons in 6 different states and 1 triathlon. I hope to do more triathlons and half marathons in the future. I train for my half marathons with the Dallas Running Club. I started training in 2011 and don't plan to stop. I LOVE exercising with other people and hate to do it alone (it's always more fun with others).

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
~Irish Blessing
