Oh dear. I was an overweight kid, then I lost over 130 pounds between the ages of 17-19 but I lost it all because I was anorexic. Then I realized I was treating my body terribly and started to eat again only went the full-swing opposite and ate whatever I wanted and gained about 35 pounds back. Then I met my now-husband and we ate out all the time and I gained another 20 pounds. Then I got pregnant! And gained 50 pounds. Wouldn't trade my son for the slimmest of figures, though. So I've lost 20 pounds since mid-April and I've got 90 more to go until I can fit back into all my awesome vintage clothes I spent years accumulating. Most of all, I'm striving to live a healthy lifestyle and learn about nutrition and fitness. I want to be the heathliest I can be so my son sees a good example and so I can run around on the beach with him without falling face first in the sand. Those little grains hide EVERYWHERE.

Member Since: 5/11/2009

Fitness Minutes: 178

My Goals:
Alright, I'm gonna do the whole 10% weight loss thingy:

Lose 23 lbs by my 2nd anniversary of meeting my husband on 9/11/09

Lose another 21 lbs by Christmas '09

Lose another 19 lbs by St. Patty's Day '10

Lose another 17 lbs by Cinco de Mayo '10

Lose remaining 10 lbs or more by 6/30/10

My Program:
I try to stay between 1200 and 1500 calories but don't feel bad unless I go over 1700.

I do workout videos 4x a week - they consist of cardio and strength training.

I try to take my son for walks on nice days.

Personal Information:
I play guitar and sing. My husband plays guitar. We play guitar together. We like music. I'm mostly into OLD stuff. WAY OLD. Like Blind Willie McTell, Roger Miller, Hank Williams, Billie Holiday. Some modern stuff is good, also.

I used to be a vegetarian and then a vegan, then I reversed and eat meat again now but am seriously considering becoming a veg head again.

I watch the Food Network more than is healthy for any normal person. My son will probably say "salt and pepper" before any other phrase. My favorite is Paula. I hope I'm her when I get older. Only, honestly, in better shape. Chick uses waaaay too much butter.

Other Information:
My favorite quote, by Friedrich Nietzsche:

"At bottom every (wo)man knows well enough that (s)he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as (s)he is, ever be put together a second time."

    Well you wouldn't be the first one to be oddly satisfied by my revenge lol Men are fixers. They get asked to help fix a problem and they do what they think is best. They don't understand the emotions and feelings involved in our weightloss. Women get these things

    Hey catch me if you can... LOL j/k......... You may actually catch up with me by july 3rd like you wanted because they are still playing with my meds and I am starting to gain again so 1 of them is making me retain fluid again, so hopefully they will take me off it. So I can start losing again.

    The status I had up meant that I can't seem to eat enough. I was under what I was supposed to be. 73 under was good because usually I'm a couple hundred under. It seems like am eating all day and I don't get enough calories. I have started planning my menu for a week ahead of time but still can't get enough... Its a work in progress I guess.... And its getting better.

    Have a great week.
