I had a beautiful baby girl on August 8th, 2016. (My miracle baby, after being told basically my whole adult life that natural conception would be near impossible for me.) I gained a disgusting 50 pounds during pregnancy. (Though, most people don't believe that; I just carry weight well!) I'm currently up 18 pounds yet that I would like to lose. I really need to work on the diet portion, since I'm still eating like I'm pregnant! Yikes!

I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)

I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.

I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

I LOVE wedding planning.

I was a gymnast for most of my life...I miss it with a passion, but my step-daughter seems to love it, so I am living vicariously through her!
