Hi, I'm a 29 year old wife and mother of 1 very active boy. I gained 60 lbs with my pregnancy 5 years ago, and it's just kept adding on since then. I want to get healthier and feel good about myself again. I want to run around with my son and not get tired. I want to get pregnant again and enjoy a healthy pregnancy. And I want my husband to look at me the way he used to.

I have had 4 knee surgeries, and I can't do a lot of things anymore because of that. I can't run, bowl (which I love), or play any sports. This has been discouraging, but I can't let it be an excuse anymore. Even with the limitations on my knee, there are things that I can do. I just need to get out there and make the most of the days my knee is feeling ok!

Fitness Minutes: 1,247

My Goals:
I have decided to take it one step at a time rather than look at the big picture. It's less stressful that way! So here are my goal weights, and there are a lot of them! As I hit the goals, I will record the day I made it, and the "prize" I give myself for reaching that goal. Something like a new outfit or new DVD (I am a movie fanatic, love collecting DVD's). Here goes:

Starting weight: 287.5 on 1/10/2011
Goal #1: 270 - 3/26/2011 - Charlie St. Cloud
Goal #2: 260 -
Goal #3: 250-
Goal #4: 240-
Goal #5: 230-
Goal #6: 220
Goal #7: 210
Goal #8: 200
Goal #9: 190
Goal #10: 180
Goal #11: 170
Goal #12: 160
Goal #13: 150
Goal #14: 140
Goal #15: 130


My Program:
I'm basically trying to take in between 1200-1500 calories, and get in as much cardio as I can a week.



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I love to read, take pictures, and be around family and friends. My weight has deterred that last one, since it's always embarrassing going out where I feel everyone is a lot skinnier than me, and I feel everyone looking at me.
