My story is long, so I'll keep it short...for now. I was heavy all my life, then lost weight. Not only did I lose weight, but I got lean enough to compete in figure competitions. I even won a show. But after a few years, I became obsessed with perfection. I burned out, developed disordered eating, and hit rock bottom. In a nutshell, I couldn't keep up.

Life has come full circle for me. I'm starting over. Now, I'm trying to find balance between exercise, eating clean, and living life.

Because THIS time, when I lose weight and get fit, it will be FOREVER.

My Goals:
To find my true "Happy Weight."

I don't go by the BMI because I love to lift weights and my muscles respond rapidly; therefore, my body will never be teeny tiny. Those charts don't work for me (or the majority of the population).

My goal is to find ACCEPTANCE of my body, not SATISFACTION. The latter is just impossible. The former is doable.


My Program:
Current Program: 5/15/15

At home workout:

Starting the Fitness Blender 8 week program. Also incorporating TRX suspension training.



Personal Information:
1. Wife to the greatest man in the universe whom I lovingly refer to as "Biff." He, in turn, calls me "Buffy" (don't ask). And since my trust in internet security is pretty much non- existent, you can call me "Buffy" too. :)

2. Mom to the best kids in the world (and you thought your kids were the best? Nope. Sorry. Those are mine.)

3. Teacher Assistant

    Yes! I love at home workout programs... it's like having your own personal trainer. =) Working out at home was never something I cared for either. But, having 3 kids, all 5 years and younger, it was a HUGE task to pack them up just to go to the gym for an hour. So, I ditched the gym, invested in an elliptical and some JM dvd's (i LOVE her btw lol) and I have been doing great ever since! I am glad to see that it is working for you! That is definitely key to success! emoticon
