On my personal journey to lose weight and get fit after delivering baby #3...

My main motivation is my marriage next June. Dress shopping WILL be the experience I want it to be.... already down nearly 50 pounds.... I WILL NOT be a plus-sized bride.

Please follow my journey and join my daily challenge team, (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! )))) We are a fun, feel-good team of people who are ready and willing to join in "random acts of encouragement" and motivation! Always a daily challenge to spread the spark!

My Goals:
I just had a baby on 12/23/09. My goal is to lose around eighty pounds AND to keep it off by adopting healthy lifestyle changes.

I want to look beautiful in a wedding dress and find a fabulous dress that isn't in the plus sizes!


My Program:
I am spending more time in the grocery store making better choices. Although I am making better choices, I tend to fall off the wagon easily and my portion sizes are not in check. I am easily tempted and need to increase my willlpower!

I walk and hit the gym at least three times a week.

I need as much support as I can get, and since I am on the computer a lot, I thought that this would be a good place to begin.



Personal Information:
My name is Melanie and I have three beautiful biracial children, ages ten, six, and nearly eight months. I am divorced, and happy to say that I have found a great guy and am in a solid relationship. We are getting married 6/25/11 and I will look fabulous!!

I am 36, and I am looking for buddies to help keep me on track, and I like the idea of people peeking over my shoulder, watching my progress.... I want a sense of accountability, and I am hoping this might help.


Other Information:
I am an 8th grade language arts teacher and a big Harry Potter fan and Twilight series fan.

Start weight for 2010 was
214 pounds after baby....

*** 15 pounds lost on 4/28/10 -- 198.4

*** 20 pounds lost on 5/26/10 -- 193.6

*** 25 pounds lost on 6/16/10 -- 189.2

*** 30 pounds lost on 7/12/10 -- 183.6

*** 35 pounds lost on 8/16/10 -- 178.8

*** 40 pounds lost on 10/13/10

*** 45 pounds lost on 11/10/10

    "How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal, and you have to be willing to work for it. Don’t give up, don’t ever give up." ~ Jim Valvano
