Like so many others, I fell and didn't get back up immediately. Years have passed. I have continued up and down the weight loss rollercoaster. I have had another baby. I have aged another 6 years. I'm trying something new.... the gym. Today. April 6, 2016 will be day one.


My short term goal is to stay motivated every day.

My long term goal is to get back to a weight and size where I feel like me again and to stay that way.

I am a 30 year old mother to 2 beautiful girls ages 10 and 6. I am adjusting to my youngest being in full day kindergarten (and now 1st grade) and for the first time in 10 years I have time to focus on my needs. I hope to go back to school within the next few years but I have yet to decide on what to go for. I'm having a bit of a midlife mid-life crisis and realized I've spent the last 10 years miserable in someone else's body and it's time for a change. It's time to be reborn as the young, happy fit woman I should have been in my 20's and will be in my 30's!

Well, losing 30 lbs before my 30th birthday isn't going to happen. I had too many setbacks and I gave up in May. I'm back now with the help of a doctor to help me lose the weight while having PCOS. It is still my goal to at least lose 30 lbs while I'm 30!

My Goals:
My goal is to have confidence in myself and to finally accomplish something that I have been half heartedly trying for many years nows. I want to prove that I can and will lose this extra weight that has prevented me from being the young, happy woman I deserve to be!


My Program:
No more soda--even diet

No more fast food

Take Out once a month ONLY

Cutting out High Fructose Corn Syrup

Eating more natural, organic foods cutting out 98% processed foods

Measuring and weighing all my meals

Walking 1-4 miles a day 7 days a week

Pilates 3 days a week

I am tackling portion control and laziness. I am also trying to enlist the help of my foodie husband to finally take my food addictions seriously.



Personal Information:
I am from good ol' New England. Born and raised in Rhode Island and currently raising my family in Massachusetts.


Other Information:
I love to quilt and try anything crafty.

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Aug. 10, you don't like to be forced into doing anything in a manner that does not come naturally to you, and organic behavior of all kinds is virtually sacred to you in all situations. Whenever you feel boxed in, you can become quite defensive -- and even aggressive -- in your attempts to assert your independence and establish your right to do things your way. There are times in which you may take things too personally for your own good, but this only springs from the occasional insecurity -- and it is something you know how to shake when the time comes.

    You have a vivid and sometimes irreverent sense of humor that is not always recognized by others -- and, in fact, it may rest unseen for long periods of time before being allowed to blossom again in just the right situation. When you laugh, it is not always out loud.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
