Hello all! My name is Erica O. and I am a brand spanking new wife! (Married May 20th of this year!) You would think that a wedding would be enough to motivate a girl to get her butt up and shed the pounds, but apparently not! About 2 years ago I was at my highest weight of 163 lbs. and within one year was able to scale it down to 135 lbs. Not sure what exactly happened, but within the last year I completely lost my motivation and my drive to be healthy. Needless to say I gained 10 lbs. back and am completely unhappy with the way I look and feel! Iím ready to finish my journey! I want to look fabulous for my husband when takes me on our Honeymoon to Africa next year! And when the time comes to start having kids I want them to see a mother who takes excellent care of herself and someone who has endless energy!

What I want most:
A healthy relationship with food! I eat a lot! I crave food to a point that I feel is completely unhealthy. And when I "diet" I take it way to extreme to a point where I know I will never last... I want a lifestyle change not another stupid "diet".

What am I scared of:
Food and failure...As I mentioned above I tend to have an unhealthy relationship with food. (Never knowing when to stop or when I am full.) I want to change this fear in to a love! Then there is failure... My objective is to turn my fear of failure in to my driving force!

What I am most excited about:
Exercise! When I get in to it.... I LOVE IT! I CRAVE IT! I NEED IT! Noting makes me feel better than to know that I treated my body to an amazing workout. (The trick is getting back to it after you have been out of love with it for almost a year.)

So what is my why???
#1 My self-esteem and self-image: I want to wake up and look in the mirror and be 110% happy with who I see staring back at me. Not just because of how fabulous I am going to look, but because of the mountain I climbed to get there!
#2 My husband: He tells me I am beautiful every day since we have been together. He makes me feel like a princess! In return I want to give him a wife with a rocking body! ;) He deserves to have a wife who is confident and beautiful!
#3 My future children: I want my kids to see a mother who loves herself and takes care of herself. I want my kids to adopt my healthy habits so they can live their lives to the fullest!

Its time I take the plunge in to finishing what I started! No more putting it off for another day, no more feeling sluggish, no more hating what I see in the mirror. Its time for me to be happy again, and I am ready to take this personal challenge! BRING IT ON!!!
