I'm not new to this whole weight loss thing. I've lost weight before and gained it back. But after two children and finally have a job that I can make work with this lifestyle, I'm ready to start again.

I am 25 years old with a 3 and 1 year old. I work at a Daycare Center and love my job. It doesn't even feel like work when I am there. I have a great boyfriend who is ready to workout with me! Although he doesn't have weight to lose he wants to get in better shape!

My highest weight was 274 pounds. And that was after having my daughter. I started to lose weight and got pregnant again. I didn't gain much during that pregnancy and was able to lose another 20-30 pounds after my son was born. But then I got unmotivated and enjoyed eating chocolate more than vegetables. Although I had made it down to 229 I'm back up to 262. And I'm done with it.

So, starting June 1st 2014, I am making a change! The last weight that I was before I started to gain all this weight was between 200-210. My first major goal is to get back down to that by the end of the year. Back to what I was before I had my kids.

And then my next major (and more difficult) goal will be 160. That was the weight that I remember being before I went to High School.

My ultimate goal is 150! 150 and toned!

My goals are to lose at least 2 pounds each week!

Hopefully, about 10 pounds a month.

My goal is to get down to 150 pounds by June 21st 2014!

I have started working out. At least 5 days a week. Maybe 6 if I'm lucky.

I workout using the eliptical, stationary bike, free weights, jump rope and I use Jillian Michael's DVD's.

Other Information:
Motivation for losing weight: My mother-in-law told me to throw out all my old clothes after I had my baby because I would never be the same size as I was pre-baby! Well, I'm starting to work towards proving her wrong.

    Thank you for stopping by and encouraging me to keep going. I was so upset all of yesterday. I kept thinking of little mistakes I made instead of putting it behind me. Everyday is a new day. And I will succeed.
