Welcome to my page. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and I hope in a few months I will have something to brag about. Not maybe...I will !!!!!

I am 23 with an energetic son who is three and a baby girl who is 11 weeks. Although I spend a lot of time running after my son I am not saying goodbye to the 65 lbs I have gained since getting pregnant almost four years ago.

I am fed up with being unhappy with my body, my energy levels and the way I limit the way I live my life. I am ready for a change!!!! Big Changes!!! I will keep you posted.

September 2006 - I have started a boxing class at a local rec centre. It is damn hard work. I am the least in shape person there and everyone is dripping with sweat when they leave. So just imagine what I am like!!! But it feels so good that know that I am doing and I am not giving up. I highly reccomend it.

October 2006- I have lost 9 lbs. Not really where I want to be on the scale. But I am so happy about what I am doing that it doesnt matter. I dont feel deprived. I know I need to wrok on being more active than I am now. But I am getting there. Maybe the next step is going to the gym. (Something I have never really enjoyed.) I was hoping to just do things I enjoy doing. But maybe that is not going to cut it. Some of your pages are so inspiring. Wow! It is really encouraging to see some of your successes.

June 2007. Wow! I feel really good. I have lost a total of 40 lbs. It has been over a period of 10 months. Although it has been slow. Those pounds are gone forever. I know that for a fact. I have said goodbye to clothes and said hello to eating better, exercise and freedom in many ways to live my life how I really want to.

I still have about 35 lbs to loose. But I know I am on my way. My biggest piece of advice to anyone is to belive in yourself. I always thought that by getting mad at myself I would loose the weight. Boy was I wrong. And celebate! Celebrate every pound. I will report back soon.

    Thank you for your kind words on my page. My secret? Track EVERYTHING and exercise ANY chance you get. It's just a matter of sticking with it. Those little 1-2 pound losses start adding up after a while. Good luck and let me know if you ever need any help.

    Goodness, thank you for the comment! It's still amazing to me that I'm motivation for people, since there's a ways to go yet. I just have to say that you have a lovely family, and I actually "awwwed" out loud at the picture of you and your son! You two are so cute! Best of luck dear and keep me posted on your progress, I'll be cheering you on!

    Hi -
    Thanks for your post on my page. I really like that quote too. You have gorgeous kids. My husband and I watched our nephew this weekend who is five. It was so much fun. We are eagerly awaiting next year when we start trying. In the meantime, it's a new healthly lifestyle for us, especially me. Looking forward to your updates! Good Luck with everything!
