My 20's were a time of experimentation, yo-yo weight gain/loss, and learning. I had my first child at the age of 29 and I'm learning the lessons from that experience.
Now that I'm 30, I want to put my experience to good use and rehabilitate my body. I want to get to a healthy weight range (145-160 lbs) and solidify good diet and exercise habits, so that I can have the energy and flexibility to enjoy my growing family to the fullest.
Update 6/5/2012: I have two wild and sweet toddler girls, 15 months and 34 months (turning 3 in July). After my second daughter was born, I lost weight so effortlessly--especially because I had to cut dairy from my diet due to her allergies--that I got used to eating whatever I wanted. I'm back to regain healthy awareness and a better relationship with food and exercise.
Get down to 145 lbs and stay there
Fit back into my skinny clothes
Learn to cook very tasty but healthy food
Live life to the fullest!
Track all food/drinks
Eat at least 5 fruit/vegetable servings per day
Exercise at least 30 minutes a day, at least 4 days a week
Run, lift weights, bike, do aerobics, yoga and Pilates, and any other type of exercise that strikes my fancy
I am 30, happily married, living in lovely Austin, TX. I quit smoking May 16, 2005. I have made several attempts to diet and establish the exercise habit over the years (starting with aerobics at age 8 with my dear mom), but have never sustained success.
I know I will eventually get there, building slowly but surely on good habits.

Hey! I've taken three years of Spanish, but that was a couple of years ago. My family is Portuguese so I've got some background there, but other than that, I don't speak much. Oh, I've taken one year of French. That is all. But I'll hopefully be starting a study soon!

Wow, I can't help but note some similarities we have. I started on January 1 also...We have relatively the same weight loss goals, and we both love languages! One of my goals before I die is to be trilingual, that' s how much I geek out about languages, lol...Anyway, Congrats on the amazing changes you've made!
