I can do this because I'm stronger than feeling hungry and tired!





Making changes is hard! Taking responsibility for what you're doing wrong is even harder. Be strong!

Working to become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside!!

I'm a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 9-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 13-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time. Last year I finally graduated college with a bachelor's degree in business (specialization in project management) ...
I'm a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 9-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 13-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time. Last year I finally graduated college with a bachelor's degree in business (specialization in project management) and after 4.5 years of hard work (4.0 GPA), long hours, and stresses, I had let my health and body go.

In January 2014, I decided to get myself back on track because after seeing the scale read a number just 2 pounds shy of my end-of-pregnancy weight with my son, I just about fell apart and felt so disgusted with myself. Not being able to fit into more and more of my clothes, I continued going up to new sizes and I knew it had to stop. In 2004, I had been slim and trim...all the way down to a size 4 with a very tight, strong, athletic body. It's time to work hard again and become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside!

UPDATE: October 2014 - Made my goal weight! Now onto maintenance. Getting stronger and leaner for life!

UPDATE: May 2015 - I've maintained my goal weight within +/- 5 lbs and I am now working on decreasing my body fat %. It is a much better indicator on how well I'm progressing on gaining muscle and losing fat than measuring my weight.

Not too bad. My wife, Mom & I went to my brother's graduation @ Ft. Lee, VA. Then he's shipping back to Italy the next day. I'm gonna miss him dearly. I don't know when we'll be seeing him again. But it was worth the trip.
