My name is Deborah and I'm a 39 year old mother of 3 and I have a wonderful husband.
My husband just recently landed a job that will be relocating us from San Diego, CA to Virginia. He's already there, but the kids and I will follow him in June after they finish out the school year.
I've decided that I do not want to start this new chapter in my life FEELING or LOOKING the way I do. I want to enter this journey feeling confident.
I've got alot to do to prepare us for this move AND work full time AND be a mother. But I'm determined to find the time to do this for myself.

Proud member of the Done Girls Spring into Summer Challenge and extra proud to be a Sizzlin' Sister!

Sizzle, sizzle, clang, bang
Water bottles we will drain
Sizzle, sizzle, spit, spat
You want fitness, we got that
Sizzle, sizzle, bing, bong
Sizzlin' Sisters, pounds be gone!

The Sizzlin’ Sisters are filled with pride,
Taking all the new challenges in their stride!
Together we’ll support and encourage our team,
So when summer arrives we’ll all positively beam!

Sizzle. Sizzle.
It's not bacon!
It's the Sizzlin' Sistahs
And their new bods shakin'!

We sizzlin' sisters are hot!
We shake our tails and trot!
Were gonna make our bodies teeny!
And fit in that bikini!

Jan. 4, 2009 Starting Weight: 255 lbs (it kills me to make this public!)

1st Goal Weight: 200 lbs

2nd Goal Weight: To be determined after reaching 1st goal.

I'm currently doing a challenge which started 3/20/09, the first day of Spring and ends 6/21/09, the first day of Summer. I'm on the Sizzlin' Sisters Team (noticed the change in my page?) My goal is to lose 20 lbs.

My husband has pretty much been the same weight during our 18 years of marriage. He's active and physically in shape. We used to do ALOT of outdoor activities, walking at the river, rollerblading at the beach, biking at the lake, hiking at local mountains, etc... I feel like I'm holding him back. Now when we go on hikes, I feel myself praying "Please God, let him choose the easy trail". Of course, he never does! I feel like a failure when him and the kids are way ahead of me, and I find them waiting for me. I just can't keep up anymore. What used to be joyful, is now miserable. I can't even enjoy the beautiful scenery because all I think about is "Am I going to have a heart attack?"
I know when we move to Virginia there is going to be so much to do and see, being that we're in new surroundings. I don't want to hold back my husband anymore. I want to be right next to him, trekking along with no problem talking with him.

My Goals:
My first goal is to lose 50 pounds. Once I do that, then I'll re-evaluate my next goal.
I not only want to lose weight, but get healthy, and get myself in better physical shape. I gotta be able to keep up with my husband when we get old!

My Program:
I'm basically gonna take baby steps.
How? By making better decisions when it comes to foods. I want to eat more WHOLE foods, FRESH foods, stay away from processed foods. Drink at least 8 glasses of water and get MOVING! My daughter & I joined a gym, so no excuses!

Personal Information:
Born and raised in San Diego, CA.
3 children, 2 boys, 1 girl
married, going on 18 years, OMG!!

Other Information:
I'm trying to find a hobby that I'll like...
I realize that I don't really have a hobby.

    Hi, sorry that you have to move from sunny CA to VA but I lived there for 7 years in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk area and I really loved it.

    Don't be discouraged, you have done great so far and if you sometimes fall off the healthy people wagon, just remember to put it behind you and get right back on. Don't look at the past, just look to future and the you that you want to be. Good luck!!! emoticon
