I love this photo of my husband and our son.





My boys, Halloween 2011. We had a scarecrow & lion. All we were missing was Dorothy and the tinman.

My Life...My Goals

Hi! I'm a 38-year old wife and mother of two adorable boys and beautiful baby girl. For me growing up, weight was never a concern. Well, too much weight wasn't. I was actually one of those 'too skinny' teenagers. While the overweight girl in my class was being made fun of for being heavy, I was being made fun of for being too skinny. I had knobby knees and elbows and you could count my ribs. I hated being so thin (how many wish they had that problem). I used to eat and eat and eat to ...
Hi! I'm a 38-year old wife and mother of two adorable boys and beautiful baby girl. For me growing up, weight was never a concern. Well, too much weight wasn't. I was actually one of those 'too skinny' teenagers. While the overweight girl in my class was being made fun of for being heavy, I was being made fun of for being too skinny. I had knobby knees and elbows and you could count my ribs. I hated being so thin (how many wish they had that problem). I used to eat and eat and eat to try and gain weight. Instead of gaining, I just grew taller. I went from being 5 feet to 5 foot 8.5 inches in just a couple years. All that changed there is that I no longer got teased for being so short and skinny, now it was being so tall and skinny. The only thing I liked about being so thin is that I could eat as much as I wanted of whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Well, my metabolism finally caught up to me. Around my mid-20s, I went from about 100 pounds to my highest of 186 in about 6 years! That's a lot of weight, I had almost doubled in size. While I have never thought of myself as fat, which I don't think I ever was, I do want to get myself back to a much healthier size. I've always considered myself a fairly healthy, although not perfect, eater. I've never been a big fan of sweets. I can eat just a couple bites of chocolate or ice cream and be satisfied. But, I do know the 3 things that have caused me to gain weight, lack of exercise, portion size, and I eat out way more than I used to. So, I'm here because I hope to learn to live a better lifestyle, something I could pass on to my kids. I want to get down to a healthier weight (not too thin like high school) and be active. It's a slow process, but I find when I put everything into it, I can get there.

My Goals:
My current goal is to be down to 130-135 by the end of the year. I started at 166.5 the beginning of June. I had a baby Nov. 2014 so I hope to be below my pre-pregnancy weight (155) by my daughter's first birthday. As of the beginning of August, I am 10 pounds away, so if I continue down my healthy eating path, I should easily get there before that date.

Other Information:
My all-time favorite series of books is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

My fave movie(s) are Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. Definitely not a top seller, but I love the main character and the story,.

Wow, your kids are so adorable! They remind me of my boys when they were little. They were 2 1/2 years apart. They are grown now & I have my lil girl, who is quickly becoming a teenager! yikes...Anyway, I think you have a great looking body...It probably seems to have changed on you, because, having kids, will certainly make your body go through changes, but you look super to me!

I can relate to your being skinny in School. I was skinny until I was 20 then ok until I was 26 then I had to try different things to get it off. Your Little boys are beautiful. How nice to have them close in age to grow up together :)
