Hello, I am a wife to a wonderful and supportive husband. I am a mother of two beautiful children, ages 6 and 4. My husband and I both work full-time. I am working on my BS in Accounting (graduate May 2015). My weight loss journey has been very up and down. My life is very stressful and I am an emotional eater. Things go wrong and get crazy, I give up and turn to crappy food. I lost 63 lbs and reached my goal back on Thanksgiving day 2011. I now have 58.4 lbs to loss. I am here to re-find my spark and gain a healthier me while trying to balance it all without turning to food.
Weighed in, measurements taken, fit test done - Ready, Set, GO!
