A lot has changed since I started SparkPeople 3+ years ago. I had my third daughter then a year later divorced and for 2 years I enjoyed finding myself again. It was a really tough marriage and I showed my strength and left with 3 small children. I feel like I can conquer the world now. In August 2011 I married a wonderful man who has made my dreams come true. He is very loving to me and loves to spend time with the family. Now that we have settled into our new home in a new town and gotten all the kinks worked out with blending our two families it is time for me to refocus. I have lost 100 lbs so far and have about 20-30 more to go. Now that I have hit 40 it seems so much harder but I will just work that much harder. I have a love/hate relationship with exercise. I love to do it but the only time I have is 5am in the morning so that is where the hate comes in. LOL! I love food. It must love me too because it sticks to my body. I have a very low metabolism and low thyroid but I won't let that stop me. If I can do this, anyone can!!! Just take it one day at a time!!!

Fitness Minutes: 120,431

My Goals:
My goal is pretty simple, to get healthier and look good. I would love to wear shorts or even better a bathing suit in public for the first time in years.

Going to Costa Rica at the end of May 2012 and I really want to be at goal or as close to it as I can. If I do my hubby is gonna buy me a new suit and hopefully a new wardrobe!!!

My Program:
My program at this moment is to slowly start changing bad habits into good habits. I will eat within my ranges and get my water in. I will try to get as much exercise and sleep that I can. Small goals will get me big results.

Personal Information:
My name is Shelli and I live in MO just an hour outside of Kansas City with my new husband, 3 beautiful daughters and one step daughter. I have always been on the chunky side but reached a weight I never thought I would see. I currently am down 100 lbs and have 20-30 more to go. I still question if I will every be skinny but right now I am enjoying where I am and how healthy I am.

Other Information:
I can't say it has been easy but I can say I am so glad I put the work and effort in and it does get easier each day. Just take it one day at a time.

I recently became an online fitness/health coach. My passion is helping others reach their goals. I don't want anyone going through most of their adult life unhealthy and not living it to it's fullest!

    Thanks Jen! I too need a tuck and a boob lift. Nursing 3 babies did havoc on my breast! LOL! I want to lose the last 20-30 and then see how it looks. I heard to give it a year to tone up a bit once you have reached your goal weight. I may do that then go in for a consult.

    Keep up inspiring people!

    Thanks for your sweet comment! I have to say that I totally understand about the skin thing. My problem is my belly, it is really bad as of late....the more I lose the more I can see the loose skin and it is a problem, was where I carried the most weight.

    I am going to do all I can this year and if it does not drastically improve, I am going to have a tuck or something done.

    I am SOOOO proud of all your hard work - WELL DONE!!

    Keep going strong and thank you so much for your sweet comments on my page!
