Melanie's Healthier Life Begins Today

We're just about to move to NM from MN. I've been a stay at home mom here since we moved back here from AZ, when our first son was born. Now with 2 little boys in tow and a new place to explore, I want to get back into shape and just be healthier in general.

I found that when I hit 200 lbs I just didn't feel like myself anymore, and I didn't like that! It's never seemed like I was too much overweight until I saw myself recently in some pictures. I knew it was time to start doing ...

I found that when I hit 200 lbs I just didn't feel like myself anymore, and I didn't like that! It's never seemed like I was too much overweight until I saw myself recently in some pictures. I knew it was time to start doing something about it, and get off all this extra baby weight.

My brother in law is getting married this fall and I would like to take a beach vacation after my husband gets back from the fire season being over. All incentives to help me move in the right direction! I love meet new people on here and hear their stories, they keep me motivated!

My Goals:
I'd like to lose some weight before my brother in laws wedding this fall. I also just want to get a healthier lifestyle in general, something I can pass on to my children.

My Program:
I'm going to consciously eat better and keep better track of what goes in my mouth. I am going to get out more with the kids hiking and getting more exercise.

Personal Information:
I grew up in MN. Started dating my husband at the end of high school, after being long distance friends for many years. Got married in 2003 and 2 days later moved to Flagstaff, AZ for his job as a Hotshot with the Forest Service. We lived there for 3 years and moved back to WI after my first son was born. About a year later we moved back to MN to be a little closer to family. After living here now, since the birth of our second son for almost 3 years, we're ready to be back out west again. In March, we'll be moving out to NM where he got a job again with the Hotshots.

Other Information:
With my hubby being gone most of the summer, I'm already looking forward to this fall. I would like to go on vacation this fall to an undisclosed location, all by myself...I'm thinking some warm sunny beach somewhere is calling my name! Any suggestions?

I'm sure you'll make friends fast. Wish I lived closer, or even took trips that way...but alas, I rarely go out that way.

But...the very next time I'm in the neighborhood, I'll let you know in advance and we'll make plans to get together.

Might be heading that way in March with my motorcycle group, but I'm not quite sure yet the route.
