2015 Update!!
I am about 4 weeks away from the due date of baby # 5 so I will again be journeying back to my goal weight. Before getting pregnant I was at my lightest adult weight. I know I can get back there but it will take me some time. I have gotten somewhat sidetracked during pregnancy and gained more weight than I should. But I will return to my daily goals and my healthy living journey.

2015 Update!!
I am about 4 weeks away from the due date of baby # 5 so I will again be journeying back to my goal weight. Before getting pregnant I was at my lightest adult weight. I know I can get back there but it will take me some time. I have gotten somewhat sidetracked during pregnancy and gained more weight than I should. But I will return to my daily goals and my healthy living journey.


I have struggled with my weight and body image for as long as I can remember. I remember being called names like "tubby" and "sumo wrestler" growing up. I have had 4 children gaining about 50 lbs with each child by believing "I could eat whatever I wanted because I was pregnant." Each time I was able to lose the weight before becoming pregnant with the next child.
I have found three trigger foods- wheat, sugar and caffeine and I am working to cut them out of my diet!! I am consistently working towards a healthy lifestyle by maintaining a streak of my goals.


Nothing is impossible with God . Luke 1:37

God's strength is made perfect in my weakness! 2 Corinthians 12:9

“God, I recognize that I am made for more than the vicious cycle of being ruled by food, body image, and comparing myself to others. I am thankful that You made my body unique in ways that I can serve You and in ways that turn my reliance upon You. I need to eat to live, not live to eat. So I keep asking for Your wisdom to know what to eat and Your indwelling power to walk away from things and thoughts that are not beneficial for me." Our taste buds crave many things to satisfy, but only persevering with God will make us truly full.”
Lysa TerKeurst - Made to Crave

"When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and the time that the tide will turn."

Can't believe baby number 5 is almost here. I have been doing good. You should try camp again when you return to your journey. Let me know when the new bundle arrives

Hi Elsa! No, I'm not doing BLC any more. I'm a co-leader of a team, and have been more active on my other teams. I'm still on my healthy journey! Thanks for the note! Did you ever move into your new home? Congrats on Baby #5 - I'm sure the other kids are very excited!! Take care!
