My cute husband and I before we went out on a date!
My husband and I again, out in Colorado!
Hi! I'm Lauren and I'm a busy college student, nanny, and a newlywed! In September I came to the conclusion that I had to do something about my lifestyle, or I was going to die at a young age. So, I joined eDiets, which I love, mainly because of all of the support from the other members. So I am here, to get even more support and give support as well!
I just want to become healthier and happier! And in turn, become happier with myself and my life!
I do cardio of some form 5 to 6 days a week either at home in the form of Tae Bo or at the rec center (ellipticals, arc trainer, stairmaster, etc), and I also strength train 2 to 3 days a week. I eat lots and lots of fruits and veggies, chicken and whole grains!
I'm from a small town in Wyoming, but I am currently living in Birmingham, AL. I moved down here in August of 2005 to be with my then fiance, now we're married! I'm a junior in college, majoring in Early Childhood/Elementary Education, focusing on teaching in urban schools. I'm also a nanny part time and I volunteer with at-risk kids as well! Needless to say, I'm a busy busy girl!

Thanks for the comment on my page. It is good to see other people from Wyoming on this site. Do you miss Wyoming since you're now in Alabama? It seems like you're doing well with your goals, keep up the good work. And thanks again.

Hi Lauren! Thanks for stopping by my page and leaving a note. I agree it's a little overwhelming, but I've been slow at work this month so I have some extra time to look around. Besides, if I'm constantly thinking about my weight loss battle, maybe I'll stick to it this time. What boards do you post on here?

I'm so glad I've met you too! Also, if you ever need any motivation or to vent, I'm always here as well! I have an office job, but I usually keep sparkpeople up even when I'm doing other work.
How much weight are you wanting to lose? How tall are you? Just curious!
Have a great day Miss Lauren! Oh wait, it says your a newlyed (congrats!) so Mrs. Lauren! hehe :)

Hey, I know you!!! :) I joined because of Emily, too, and so far I'm loving it!!! I don't know if there's a team for ediets members or not, but that might be an interesting thing to create! Hopefully this will help us find whatever motivation we're looking for! It's nice to see a familiar face!
