Hi, I'm Michelle! I'm 30 and a proud new mom of a 1 year old boy. I struggled with my weight all my adult life, gaining weight and then losing some. Up and down, constantly. I was near my high weight 190 when I got pregnant and then I gained 60 pounds during pregnancy! I'm trying to get back my health and fitness abilities during my slimmer moments.

Weight Stats:
Feb 2011: 191
Mar 2012: 166
Sept 2013: 190
May 2014: 250 (9 months pregnant)
Jan 2015: 210 (7+ months postpartum)
Mar 2015: 192.5
Apr 2015: 189.2
June 2015: 185.6
