I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.

My Goals:
Get to a place where I am happy with my body.

At my heaviest I weighed 170lbs. I'd like to be between 125 and 135 in maintenance. **I'm 5'4" for reference**

My Program:
Limiting processed foods - trying for clean eating.

Make use of my home gym daily - the gym consists of a treadmill, Bowflex BodyTower, ab bench thing, and a Total Gym (a gift that we have yet to assemble).

Personal Information:
I'm from the Tacoma, WA area. I'm 26 years old and just married my best friend on 9/23/12. I am adjusting to life as someone trying to be healthy with a very busy schedule as well as adjusting to being a wife and stepmom.

    Thanks! I think my exam went ok! I needed a 68 to get a 70 (a distinction, the highest mark) in the class, so I'm hoping I got that! There were a few questions that completely came out of left filed, but everyone felt that way. I hope I did well enough!

    I also tried taking the turmeric in the afternoon after having a cup of coffee and it bothered my stomach. So no more turmeric for me!

    That makes sense, but yoga truly is stretching, I guess you don't really stretch your feet and calves too much though. I have a massage therapist who works on me occasionally (it's so hard without him in the UK!) and he said I really need to stretch more than what I do. I need to start doing yoga again as I know that really helped. My hips are so tight! I need to get them loosened up for sure! And my calves, and my shoulders, I'm just "old" haha
