Hi there...I'm Erica. I'm 35, married, and mom to 2 beautiful girls.

When I was younger, I was always fit ...not a stick...but fit. Riding horses meant I could eat whatever I felt like eating, and nothing would stick to me. I was a size 10 till my senior year in high school. Then, I took a job as an office manager and that day after day grind sitting in a chair all day packed pounds on. It didn't help that my boss was a size 0 and brought in Italian food for us nearly every day!

It just got worse and before I knew what hit me I was at 280 pounds! I'd lost about 40 pounds of that, but I gained it all back plus a few extra pounds.

Update- 9/7/2013
My husband joined me in my challenge this year. With him by my side, we have lost a combined 128 pounds in 9 months!!! We're more resolved than ever to keep moving forward! A new active lifestyle finally has us going strong!!!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose 160 pounds. One day at a time...I'll get there! I've met my first goal of seeing 250 again and I'm working towards 200 now. One day at a time!

My Program:
My husband and I walk around 30 miles a week. In addition, we keep our calories around 1500 a day and we don't sweat all the details. If we want to have a nice meal, we have it, we just walk a little further on that day. So far, so good.

Personal Information:
I'm a married mother of 2 daughters. I am also a school bus driver, which is both challenging and rewarding.

Other Information:
I'm a total TV addict, but my husband bought me a treadmill, so it's right in the living room leaving me no excuses. I workout while I watch :D
