I'm 31 years old, married to my best friend who is in the military. We've been married for seven years and they have been the toughest years and also some of the best. We are still learning about each other, and learning to live , AND EAT, together. We have both struggled with weight most of our lives, but we are trying to help each other now to gain health, and lose weight. EVERY DAY is a struggle but at least we have each other :)


My lowest weight EVER has been 140lbs back ...

My lowest weight EVER has been 140lbs back in high school. College years I floated around 165-175lbs. After getting married I went up to 200lbs and highest ever was 245lbs (had lots of life changes going on, hated my job, was depressed a lot, and we were moving from NC to Hawaii). My ultimate goal weight is 145lbs!

We started working out this week, early mornings. If i don't do it first thing in the morning then it won't happen later in the day. I've started back on TurboFire. I guess the lady who made that is coming out with a new one called "PiYo" and I am waiting for a promo video to see if its fun. I need some fun music during my exercise!

How's your exercise going? Doing anything fun?

Hey there, I'm so glad to hear that you had a fun trip. It sounds really busy with all the places you went. My 4th of July was really nice. I stayed in town and hung out with some friends and family at my parent's pool.

I've never heard of that supplement, but that's great that it's working for you. I had a really bad experience with slimquick a few years ago, and since I'm on other medications, I tend to stay away from supplements.

I definitely know how hard it can be to get back into your groove after a vacation. You're on the right track with no more eating after 7. That is such a smart idea, I really wish I could stick to it! Are you back to working out too, or just focusing on one thing at a time?

I'd LOVE to get together if you're in Raleigh, or if I'm in Hawaii (not so likely)!!!

Hey there! Thanks so much for the encouragement on my blog. I think I'm going to just do it! You're right, it can only come if I put myself out there. I hope you're doing well! I keep seeing notifications of you weigh loss in my feed. Way to go!!! Did you beat your husband in the weight loss competition?

Great pictures!! Congrats on the 4lbs lost, I'm sure you'll end up beating your husband in the weight loss competition!

What kind of workouts are you dong? At home or gym? DVDs? Mostly cardio or mostly weights? I'm feeling like I'm in a workout rut, and I need some inspiration. :)
