Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Melanie. I live in Hyattsville. I'm 33, married, a Stay at Home mom to one beautiful little man, J. I've been on the journey to health since he was born in 2007. I am literally half the woman I used to be, but am finding maintenance extremely difficult. I hit my goal weight and then began a cycle of gaining and losing, because I don't know how to just "stay".
I love exercise and fitness-- mostly running and am learning to love strength training. I almost always work out at home or if the weather is nice and hubby is home, I'll go to the Arboretum in DC or Buddy Attick for a run.
I am pretty shy and struggle with meeting people IRL. I'd love to actually meet some of the people that I have shared this journey with. (But, it scares me too...)
Peace and Blessings lovelies!
Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt
