My name is Amber and I live in West Columbia. I work at Dow as a contractor and am finishing up my Associate's Degree at Brazosport College. I have 1 son, Noah, who will be 3 in October. I really would love for him to have a baby sister, but I need to lose at least 35 pounds before we even think about trying. I have a super packed schedule and with no babysitter (my husband works shift work at Dow) on evenings or weekends so I can get a good workout in, I have to squeeze in what I can at home or in my Fitness Center class at the college.
I am looking for someone to maybe attend Zumba fitness class with me at the Lake Jackson Rec Center, they have a number of classes on different days so the options are open.
Go from 196lbs - 165lbs by December 20th (leaving room for holiday eating! :)
Go from 165lbs - 145lbs by April 1st 2010 (my 28th birthday)
Try for baby #2 after reaching 145lbs but keep up the good eating and exercise so I don't gain another 60 lbs while pregnant again!
My fantasy is to get down to what the doctors say is my 'ideal weight' for my height, which is 115lbs. But I haven' weighed 115 since I was in 8th grade, so I think I will have to be happy just losing what I've gained in the 9 years since high school! (Sorry DOC but my chest and butt always have and always will be big!)
I hope to get to know some of you in the area, as I don't know a lot of people here (I'm originally from Illinois) and I'd really like to find a workout buddy and motivator!
