Pain is temporary. Pride is Forever.

Hey all. I have re-written this introduction so many times. First it was a long drawn out story of how I lost 90 lbs, and kept it off even after having my second child, but then I realized that I have gained so much more than I have lost so maybe my story should be about that?

I have gained self-confidence, a love for exercising, knowledge about fueling my body with the right foods, energy to play with my kids. I have ran many races, bonded with my sister through training, met my best friend at the gym during this whole journey, and set goals knowing that with hard work I CAN achieve them!

Welcome to my page. I hope you will stick with me through my journey as I lose a little more weight, gain a little more confidence, and pursue my passion to help others achieve a healthier life.

Great Quotes:

"A marathon is a race between two people WHO YOU ARE and WHO YOU WILL BE" - Author unknown

"It's hard to be fat, and it's hard to be thin, pick your hard."

"OBSESSED is just a word the LAZY use to describe the DEDICATED." - Russell Warren

"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -George S. Patton

"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up. "
-- Dean Karnazes

We decided not to find out again. We ended up flipping a coin at the appointment to make our decision; we just couldn't decide. I honestly like not knowing and the planning and there isn't much planning I feel like I need to do, especially for number 2. Everything we bought for my daughter was gender neutral and we aren't into painting their rooms since we know we will be moving in a few years and have to paint them back neutral. The only thing we did do gender specific was to buy two different bedding sets and returend one once she was born.

I would love to have another girl so my daughter can have a sister. My sister and I are very close and I treasure our relationship. But, I know my husband kind of wants a boy to carry on his name (the last chance his famiy has). He is ok with another girl though because our first is such a daddy's girl and he LOVES it!

We'll have to wait another 20 weeks to find out what this one is emoticon

Thanks for the comment on my status. How old are your girls? Have you done Insanity? I see you do P90X workouts too. I LOVE those! I'm planning on completing the 90 days worth of Insanity but then doing a hybrid workout of the two to get back to lifting. :)

Thanks for sharing your story with me. You're inspiring! And I especially love the quotes you've posted; I'd like to read them over and over again on days like today, when the scale hasn't budged. You're so close to your goal weight, but you have achieved so much more than just a number on a scale. I wish you continued success--and I have every confidence in you! Cheers--
