January 2013
Well, another year and a new day...i'm still here..and although i have gained weight back , i'm gonna get back on track and get healthy and active!And well i haven't completed my goal from a year ago, i'm in a better emotional place...i've learned that you can only rely on yourself and your family...and that when it comes to it, your the one who has to do it! no one else...




November 1,2011
With my 265 days days done, and my birthday come to past i figured it was time to restart/redo my page....my birthday goal was met!I started my journey at a scary weight of 256lbs and in a little under 9 months have lost 57 lbs!!! and also 23inches!
So, now what you may ask?
I still wanna be healthy and able to keep up with my kids, and live a long good life out of respect for my deceased friend(RIP Amber)...

So new goals:

walk everyday
get down to a healthy BMI
Exercise 45 minutes to 1 hour a day
BE HAPPY!!!




Feb.1,2011 intro to me.......31 yr old married to a great man,mother of 2 boys..trying to lose weight after realizing life can end anytime(lost a friend the same age as me because of an infection!)..and i wanna be healthy, and happy...i wanna be able to play with my boys and keep up with our friends..not be the fat, overweight person who can't do what everyone else is doing :(

When i realized that i was 44 lbs from 300 i got a big SHOCK!and then as i thought about my friend losing her life so early, i knew i had to do something..

First step was to find help..and i found that here..

256-starting weight(highest i have record of as well)

236- April 16, 2011(20lbs!)

226-may 15,2011(30lbs)

216-june 30,2011(40lbs)

206-august 10,2011(actually 205)....

under 200 by my birthday(199.5)October 28,2011 reward for this-Tattoo

196-

186-

175-

My main goal is to be under 200lbs...but i'd like to make it to a healthy BMI rating, for which i'd need to get down to 175....

Be the change you wanna see!

One step at a time, one day, one pound....

Be not afraid to go slow, be afraid only of standing still...
