I gave birth to my beautiful daughter, Kaylee, on July 11, 2009. I am 5' 7"; I hit my peak weight with her of 306 pounds, and was already at my highest weight of 240 pounds before we conceived her. I am striving to be the healthy and in-shape mother and wife I know I am inside!!

I have achieved one of my biggest goals since I stared this journey, and ran my first marathon, the Twin Cities Marathon, on October 7, 2012. Now, a new chapter has begun.

The slate has been cleaned. I am not starting over, I am moving on to the next part of my life, to get back to the healthy weight I worked so hard to get down to, to get back to basics, to treat my body the way it needs to be treated, and to continue being a great role model for the love of my life, my daughter Kaylee.

My New Starting Weight is 198 pounds, taken on Friday, October 6.

I will weigh in every Saturday morning.

10/13 - 194 (-4)

My Goals:
1. First of all, to be healthy. That is the most important.

2. To be a role model for my baby as she gets older.

3. To be the best wife, mother, friend, and supporter I can be.

4. To always get back up if I fall.

5. To remember that not one single item of food could ever taste as good as thin feels.

My Program:
1. I am a member of Weight Watchers and I follow their program as diligently as I can without being perfect :o}

2. I am a member of 2 gyms, the bigger one closer to home, the smaller closer to work, so I have no reason to miss a workout, even if I need to do it on my lunch hour.

3. I am conscious about what I put in my mouth.

4. I avoid temptations.

5. I make fitness goals for myself along with weight goals. They are in the main body of this page, and I know I can accomplish all of them!

Personal Information:
I am Erin, and I am from Grand Forks, ND. I have a husband, Corey, and a rambunctious girl, Kaylee, who just turned 3 in July.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again - Author unknown
