Tessie's Weight Loss Journey

Update: February 2013

Third times a charm?

Update: January 2012

RESTARTING. Can make a huge list of reasons why I failed to lose weight and keep up with my fitness regimen last year... but why? I'm 27-years-old, and I promised myself on my birthday back in June that this is the year I do things for myself. I need to keep that promise to myself. Here we go again! I want to be that damn success story!!!!

My name is Tessie. I'm 26-years-old and have a beautiful daughter named Grace who is 2-years-old and a wonderful crazy husband named Tom. I also own/operate my own portrait and event photography business in addition to staying home with my daughter. I've battled with being overweight since I can remember... and i'm sick of it. I belong to a local YMCA and i'm ready to make some changes for myself and for real this time... FINALLY! Looking for some buddies to help me along the way :)
