Taken during last deployment :)
I'm getting somewhere! May 08
Well here we go again...
Hey guess what?! I'm starting over! ...Again...
I know. It's a bit ridiculous, but you know what? As long as my 'try agains' outweigh my 'failed agains' I'll come out on top in the end!
I want to be a healthy weight for my frame. I''m 5''tall, 195# and shooting for 115# as my ultimate goal weight, to be achieved by the end of this deployment.
I''m the Poster Child for yo-yo dieting. Fortunately not a fad dieter, just an inconsistent one! So, I'm watching what I eat, and trying to burn it off as I go.
Been a stressful couple of years: back to back deployments, a couple of failed pregnancies, fertility treatments, blown out knee, and accompanying surgery/recovery. Cancer. And we recently PCS'ed to Hawaii from Virginia.
Yeah. Been rough, but now it's time to get myself focused and squared up... I'm in a good time, good place, and ready to knock this out of the park!
This time round, I'm trying something new (for me): I have NEVER been a breakfast eater. And I'm not so good about lunch either... So, my metabolism has pretty much died. At this point, I've decided to try using Ideal Shape Shakes, to at least get my body into the habit of taking in nutrients early in the day. I know "real food!" is what I should be doing, but I'm honest enough to know it's just not happening. I'm allergic to milk and eggs,
My name is Jennifer, I''m a Navy wife (no kids) living in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. :)

Medic, I just finished reading your blog. First I would like say how much I appreciate what your husband does for our country. My husband is a member of the American Legion. I would like you to know that if you are in need of help while he is deployed check with your local Legion post. They are there to help the veterans young and old an their families. I wish you luck on your journey.

Thanks for the comments about my Spaniels :) My dogs are show dogs, so they tend to be slightly smaller than most pets . . . my oldest dog (almost 10) weighs about 23 pounds, my female (almost 3) weighs about 21 pounds, and my youngest (roughly 16 months old) weighs about 24 pounds.
