Getting Thin in my 30's

Working on living a healthy, active lifestyle. Need to lose that post-baby weight that is way over due!

I am a full time wife and mother of 1 daughter, Evie (born 2005) and 1 son, Jay (born 2008). In addition we also have an English Bulldog (born 2010). I am currently working towards my BBA/MSA in Accounting to go onto get my CPA. Aug 14 2013 I took on a new part time Accountant position at an Architecture firm. I still have 3 years of school left but we are wanting to get a bigger house so I decided to take on a part time job now. Both my children are going to be in school full time so I will drop them off go to work until 1, go home spend time with the hubby for a couple hours then pick the kids up (we do school of choice) then home. During the fall 2013 I will have class T & Th 5-6:15 and W 6:30-9:10. Going to be busy and hectic but to those who know me know I am constantly on the go and this is nothing new. Began this journey May 11, 2011 and its been a roller coaster ride from the beginning. I wanted to be thin by 30 but the bday has since passed and I am still 40+ lbs away from goal.

update Jan 2, 2012:
I didn't reach those 2011 goals, but its a new start to a new year for a new journey! My goals are still the same, my program has changed just a small bit. This year is a year of committment, no more convenience!!!!

updated 10/10/11:
I have had quite a number of setbacks over the summer. Now that DH is finally returning to work from his injury, I have NO MORE excuses. It is time to get back on track! It is time for ME!!! I need to be healthy not only for myself but for my family!

emoticon Jennifer/ I love your page. The pictures are great. It is catch up month on the Positively Yours team. We haven't seen you in awhile. emoticon Wanted to check in on you.

I would be excited about Niagara Falls too. I have always wanted to go, I have always wanted to go, heck I have always wanted to move to Canada. At least when I was younger.

Hope to see you back on the threads.

Jennifer, my ADD, thanks so much for the valentine goodie! I can tell how excited you are about Niagara Falls and I understand completely. It is one of our favorite places to go. I highly recommend going to Niagara-On-The-Lake and taking the Jet Boat up the river. It is a beautiful town, great for sight seeing and high tea too! But the thrill of the Jet Boat can't be beat. I am sure my A-SIL would love it too! I like the 5% Team. It is not like the Violets on BLC, but I wanted something a little different this time 'round. I hope your realtor finds you the perfect house. ((hugs)) ADM
