Pig Tails - When ever I put them in my hair, I have to jump on the trampoline and do kartwheels!

After 5 years and 15 doctors, I have found a doctor that has been able to help me! I have really strange food allergies which were making me ill with hives, swelling and general bad health. I am no longer taking antihistamines, blood pressure medication, and my hypoglycemia is gone! It is also great to not have my eyes swelling shut! LOL!

I also had an ankle surgery....... so, now my health has improved, and I am able to exercise without becoming ill after a week or having my ankle swell up to twice it's normal size. There is nothing stopping me from losing the weight, and becoming a healthy me!

I am up to running 5K at 9:26 minutes a mile, and hope to improve on that time. I have lost over 14 pounds since they were able to identify my food issues, and I have been healing - this is almost 4 months ago that they discovered my problems.

It can only get better from here on out, and I am excited to see what comes next!

My Goals:
Hmmmm.... goals. Lose the weight, keep it off, and feel strong and healthy! I want to be able to do pull-ups again as well as cross the monkey bars and not feel like my arms are going to pull out of their sockets. I also would like to be able to do a head stand in the middle of the room..... no more cheating and doing it on the wall!!!

My Program:
Tracking everything I eat. It is amazing what you don't put in your mouth to avoid the whole logging it in the system thing. Also, working out every day... I feel better emotionally and physically when I move it!

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconsin and enjoy the outdoors. Love to run, hike, bike, roller blade, swim and play with my three kids. My kids are incredible, but sometimes they suck the life blood out of me..... I take care of their needs and forget about mine sometimes! Looking for the happy balance.... It is out there somewhere. Kids + full time job + time for Mom = Happiness

Other Information:
My rewards:
5 pound weight loss - wear the new dress, bought for such occasion
10 pound weight loss - new workout wii tape
15 pound weight loss- not sure yet, but it's going to be something good!
20 pound weight loss - go shopping in my closet. I have a whole wardrobe for skinny me that I long to be reunited with!
25 pound weight loss - not sure yet, but is going to be incredibly awesome
30 pound weight loss - whatever I want, and some method of keeping me there! Wow, can't even fathom what it will be like!
