my new fav shoes right now..
I have 18 pics in my gallery
I am so much more than my size or the way I look. So are you!! Let's all embrace this...
I am no longer actively trying to lose weight. I do have weight goals below, but, I am no longer obsessed on getting there at any given time. I'm not even sure if I should. I am now at a healthy weight and I feel good. I am going to try to stay that way. I will continue to eat healthy and stay active because I deserve to, not so I can look a certain way... If I continue to lose weight because of this, awesome! I will not let it determine how I feel about myself. I want to ...

I am going to trust my body on this one.... Let's see what happens...
Maintained 153 or below most of 2012, time to move forward!!
153: Starting Weight 10-30-12
Maintained until May. 2014
March 2014 Update!
Weight: I dropped from 153 to around 140 in early 2013. Then up again to 147 around September. I think I dropped for bit there too, but, I wasn't weighing in. I went from a size 11(I know, I still wear junior pants LOL) to a size 9. I have maintained my current size and weight since September. Which is nice. I am now ready to kick it into gear a bit and lose a few more pounds and more importantly drop a pants size. Maybe even reach my GW!!! I have a pair of size 7s that have been waiting for me. I want to tone up and not feel so jiggly, and I want to be able to wear my new swim suit this year and feel amazing in it! I am pretty good about what I eat, might just have to work on some portion sizing and drinking more water. I know if I really want to get to where I wanna be I need to become more consistent with exercise. I hope it can become a natural part of my life like my diet is now. Something I just do and don't think about. Here's to 2014!! My year to fall in love with exercise....
Updated Start Date: 10-30-12
I am updating my start date and goals! I had a rough 6 months with alot of stress. I ended up gaining all my weight back plus some! I got up to 153. Thirteen pounds over my original SP starting weight! I gained almost 20 lbs in 6 months. Thats an eye opener... This really made me realize how easy it is to gain weight. Especially as I've gotten older. I maintained this weight most of 2012. I am giving up the excuses and starting over! I hope I will have learned from my mistakes and acheive my goals! Im going to delete my past progress and goals so I can start off with a clean slate! I'm just glad Im catching myself now and not later....
Past Start Date: November 2010
Here's a bit about me.. I'm a mommy to a wonderful little girl. Born January 30, 2009. I'm married to an amazing man. Ive been with him since 2006... We were married Sept 10, 2010.. To summarize. I gained about 20 lbs when my hubby and I started dating. I then gained 50+ pounds when pregnant with my daughter. After I had her I was between 170-175 lbs. I dropped to around 140 in about 6 mos. This was about 10-15 lbs from my "then" GW. I started to lose motivation and started to gain back some of the weight. Then in Nov. 2010 something clicked. I had a spark account, but, I hardly used it and wasn't involved in the community at all. I logged on, created a page, and lost nearly all the weight. I was just a few lbs. away from my current GW. Then something happened and I fell off the wagon... Whoops!
