Refuse to be the fat chick anymore!!

32 yrs old and it's going to be my best year ever! I'm married with 4 kids and an insanly busy life, but I decided that if I don't take care of myself now then my poor kids or husband will have to do it in the near furture.

I realized just how self-destructive I had become when I hit 300 lbs. I honestly didn't feel that heavy, but the scale and my size 24s didn't lie. Food was a comfort for some reason and gave me a false sense of stability thru some really hard times.

I love being active and working out. I consider it my 'me' time and I need it badly most days!

June of 2010 I made everyone a deal.. I get one hour a day.. and the other 23 hours are yours!! Since then I have been able to loose weight and gain my life and confidence back.

I won't lie and say that's its been easy, but nothing in life worthing having is easy to come by!! Keep working hard and push thru the valley.. a mountain is just a head!

Since losing the weight I have joined the fire dept. and love being a firefighter!
