My name is Laurie and I am a Florida native. I have a wonderful husband and wonderfully smart little boy named Cole. I am a stay at home mom, who knows how lucky I am to have the best job in the world...I struggled for so many years to get pregnant and now I am living my dream...To raise my child! I am also starting to homeschool.
I am also very active in my church, Bible study, and the local March of Dimes chapter. I have a passion for helping others and enjoy sharing my testimony.
I never struggled with my weight growing up because of my high metabolism, now after battling depression (due to loosing a child and a miscarriage...not having children) and post pregnancy weight, I want to be fit again and chase my son (AND HUBBY!) around. I want to not feel tired all the time. I want to have energy and feel good about myself!
I was very close to my goal weight in Jan. 2006, but due to hubby's demanding schedule, my schedule, my son's schedule and dealing with 3 hurricanes, 3 tropical storms in 2 years, I put the weight back on. I am confident that I can and WILL loose this weight. I am very thankful to have found this site.
1. To loose 10 lbs. (7lbs)
2. To loose 8" or more. (5 1/4 in)
3. To be in a size 8.
4. To run 1 mile w/o walking. ( ran 1 mile in 10:30)
***To be 145 or less by March 16th (our 12th anniversary).
To be physically fit and be able to keep up with my highly active son Cole.
To "chase" hubby around the house..LOL
To feel comfortable in a bathing suit.
To not be afraid to try on clothes at the store, before purchasing them.
To not be ashamed of my weight.
To be able to fit into the clothes I bought after I lost the weight initially.
To eat healthier, cut out the junk.
To log my foods down so that I don't over indulge and can keep better watch over what I am eating.
