Hi, my name is Andrea and I live in sunny south Florida. I want to be healthy and fit so that I can live the active lifestyle I have always wanted. I scuba dive and love to spend time at the beach. I would love to try out surfing one day. Luckily, our weather allows us to be outside all year so I am looking to take my exercise outdoors and recently signed up to train for a triathlon with Team in Training.

I have been on a weight loss journey for many years now. After having my daughter in my early 20's, I steadily packed on the pounds until I was shockingly over 200 lbs (I am only 5'2"). I decided enough was enough and in 2006 changed my eating habit and began exercising regularly. I had great success and by 2008 I was down to 145, only 15 lbs from my goal weight. Unfortunately, I began to backslide as the pressure started to mount at work and personal responsibilites skyrocketed at home. For the last 2 1/2 years I have been stuck on a yo-yo diet rollercoaster slowly adding back the lbs. I now weigh 165.

After turning the big 4-0 last year and seeing my bloodpressure rise to official "hypertension", I have realized that I can no longer take my health for granted. I have a beautiful 17 year old daughter that I intend to stick around for and discover the world with.

So, here goes . . . . wish me luck :)
