Hi! I'm Ashley. I joined Sparkpeople back in 2007 after talking to a dietitian at my college wellness center. With the support of other Sparkers, along with finding a fitness routine that worked for me and eating the right foods and portions, I got down to my lowest weight since high school (137 lbs) for my wedding in 2011. Annnd, then my weight went right back up. I'm ready to find my happy weight and work on maintaining it by restoring the necessary balance in my life once again.

    Thinking about you Ashley...
    Hope you are well & strong.
    There's a "Daily Check-in" thread over at WLW that can be as short & sweet as you like, maybe a good way to ease back if you're thinking about it.
    You are missed.

    Beautiful wedding picture!! I saw your comment about being the youngest Jazzerciser at your studio! That's crazy! I'm 33 and I'm probably on the younger side but not the youngest by far! Keep up your awesome work!

    Ahhh yes, the same question almost every day... how's married life?! haha Craig and I are similar to you and Tim in that we were together for a long time before marriage, and we already lived together. So really not much has changed. We were REALLY nice to each other for like, 2 weeks after the wedding LOL!! Then we went back to our regularly scheduled program :)

    I just read your last blog, and I think it's great that you are being proactive in trying to help your relationship. As much as I joke that things are the same, marriage can be TOUGH. I hope things start to look up for you guys. Since you & I got married just a week apart I feel like we have a connection, and if you ever need someone to talk to, vent to, or just chat about what's going on, please come to me!! Send me a comment or a private message. Sometimes it helps to just get it out.

    Hope you have a great Tuesday girl :)
