40 year old Mom of 2 (19 & 18)- Married to my best friend- Rick and live in Spokane, WA. Retired from the Air Force last October after 20 years. Unemployed sitting on my tush, retirement is making me fatter and fatter!

I've got the Mommy pooch and my hips, thighs and butt are my trouble spots. Plenty of strech marks and cellulite that has been there for what seems like forever.

My husband and I love to travel. We did a lot of camping in our RV, but now that we are both retired from the military, we have been actually taking REAL vacations and LOVE it! We want to get in shape and be healthy so that we can enjoy life and hopefully one day have grandbabies!!

Fitness Minutes: 1,575

My Goals:
5 ft 2 in- Started at 149#- !
My goal is to look good naked and in my clothes. Also, to exercise more and get in shape. I want to stick to one size and purge my closet of all the differents sizes I keep because I fluctuate weight so darn much!

My Program:
Have been eating a lot of salads and fruit. Oatmeal in the morning with fruit and tons of water. I've started an exercise routine with exercises from this website with weight training. Can't wait for our weather to warm up so I can start taking the dog for walks- THAT will be a cardio workout- we have a golden retriever!

8 Time-Saving Tips
Sometimes, finding the time to prepare and eat healthy meals seems like a challenge. But eating regular, nutrient-dense and fiber-rich meals, like those recommended on the South Beach Diet, satisfy your appetite, boost your health, and help you manage your weight, so there are better reasons than ever to spend more time in the kitchen. For those still daunted by the idea of preparing healthy foods, here are eight simple time-saving ways to get started on a new you:

Always keep a bag of prewashed salad greens on hand.
Cook up big meals once a week, and save the leftovers in single-size containers in the freezer.
Buy easy foods, like canned light tuna, low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt, or ready-made hummus.
Chop fruits and veggies once a week and keep them in the fridge.
Have a bag of nuts or some string cheese available for "on-the-go" days.
When you go out to eat, take half your meal home to eat the next day.
Find a healthy-food bud
