Determined to be happy with myself

Since I was 20 years old, I have been struggling with the large amount of weight I put on while pregnant with my first child. I went from 130 lbs to my current weight of 214. I am 5ft. 6 inches tall and ready to take care of me.
Three years ago I was down to 163 lbs but suddenly lost the desire to take care of myself anymore. In August of 2010, I was bigger than I have ever been. I've since lost 42 lbs but at this point and so sick of feeling ugly and tired.
My husband is deployed ...

My husband is deployed Navy and by his return this summer, I plan to be in Onderland (under 200 lbs). I only have 12'ish to go and I am motivated and determined this time to make my goal of 135 lbs, slowly and assuredly. I Can Do This!!

To feel beautiful and finally have the self confidence I haven't had in over 10 years. To not be skinny, but slender and healthy and not have to walk out of a clothing store crying because I'm unhappy with the way I look and the way I feel.


My Program:
Weight Watchers from home, video workouts, treadmill and boot camp style workouts by my military hubby.

Personal Information:
I'm a 31 year old non-working Massage Therapist. I'm a mom to 3 kids and a wife to a Navy man.
I love digital scrapbooking and amateur photography, which I spend my free time doing.

Hey there

Thanks for the comment. It was a true motivator. I love this site and the interaction it allows people to have. I cant believe all the things it offers. I read your profile and looks like we do have alot in common for our goals and I would like to say I am here for support if you need it....even if its just by leaving little motivational comments each day. Have a great day
