Hi, I'm Ginny!

I'm a happily married, stay-at-home wife and mom to 2 sweet girls and follower of Jesus Christ.

I began the Spark People journey in the summer of 2009. I lost 20 pounds then found out I was pregnant. I had girl number 1 in July 2010 and fifteen months later had girl number 2 in November 2011. Since having my large babies (9 lbs 8 oz and 11 lbs 4 oz) I've struggled to get the weight off. I know it's a lack of discipline when it comes to eating and huge lack of exercise.

Thankfully, I have a supportive husband (he lost 70 pounds over 2.5 years using this wonderful site) and has maintained his weight loss. He continues to make healthy choices and watch his portions. Because of this accountability, I can make healthy choices too.

I enjoy cooking/baking and just being in the kitchen, walking, Taebo, Core Secrets, reading, writing, studying the Bible, being involved in church activities, playing Wii with my husband Daniel, loving on our baby girls and swimming at my mother-in-law's house.

Member Since: 6/5/2009

Fitness Minutes: 4,672

My Goals:
1. Track my nutrition 7 days a week using SP.
2. Walk for 20-30 minutes Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday to jump start my metabolism for the day.
3. Exercise 4-5 days a week. I'll be running, doing Taebo videos and Core Secrets videos (strength training and cardio).

My Program:
Taebo and Core Secrets videos. Run/walking a couple days a week.
Portion control!

Personal Information:
I am married to a wonderful, loving man and we joined this site together in June 2009.

We welcomed our first sweet girl in July 2010 and our second sweet girl in November 2011. Yes, you're reading that right, they're 15 months apart. Yes we're very busy! :)

Other Information:
This is a great, free site that is such an encouragement. I feel like it takes a lot of the guess work out of eating better and exercising. I'm glad a friend recommended this site to my husband and me.

    Thank you, ma'am! I've been doing a workout program called Slim in 6 and it always gets me GREAT results. I will be finished with it tonight (until Dec. when I'll probably be tired of my next series), so if you guys want to borrow it, let me know.

    Keep doing what you are doing Ginny. Sometimes it doesn't make sense as to why we loose our motivation. You definetely need a partner and I am here for you when you need some xtra TLC. Set a little goal and add to it weekly - before you know it you will be back into your "groove". Is your husband able to be your work out partner? My BF works out in the gym with me and it really helps - we try to eat healthy together as well.

    Keep it up - I'm counting on your strength and motivation to help keep me going. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers
