This is us under the marquis at the wedding reception - a converted movie theater.





Chester wanted to play some DDR too, I guess. :)





This was taken in 2006, when I was a bit bigger. I was hovering between 230-235 then.



I have 14 pics in my gallery

Getting on the road to healthiness... for good!

Hi everyone! I am a 29 year old whose weight has been up-and-down on the scale for as long as I can remember. (Mostly up.) For now, I am trying my hand at being healthy and living a better lifestyle not only for myself, but also for my husband and our daughter + future children. We're both bigger people, and personally, I don't want my kids to be alienated or left out in any way due to their size. To do this, I need to start living by example NOW.

Hi everyone! I am a 29 year old whose weight has been up-and-down on the scale for as long as I can remember. (Mostly up.) For now, I am trying my hand at being healthy and living a better lifestyle not only for myself, but also for my husband and our daughter + future children. We're both bigger people, and personally, I don't want my kids to be alienated or left out in any way due to their size. To do this, I need to start living by example NOW.

I'm not just doing this for my hubby and my daughter, though - I want to be thinner for myself. A while back, I had a very successful run with Weight Watchers, losing about 45 pounds. Then I gained 70 back over the course of the next year. :( I'm sick of being up and down and want to be healthy... for good. My waistline will thank me too. :)

My ultimate goal is to be 175-180 pounds. I do not want to set a time frame for accomplishing this goal, though... looking back, I think imposing a time frame for shedding pounds (and then not living up to those goals) only sets me back in the long run. Sooo, we'll just chunk up that weight loss into bite-sized, attainable goals and whittle away at what I have. I'll get there, eventually. :) Just like the tortoise and the hare... I'm the tortoise, haha.

My Goals:
Numerically, my goal is to be 175-180 pounds. I know that I will never be skinny, and I am OK with that. (I love my curves and ghetto booty.) This is about getting healthy and about looking better - more like myself.

Another goal is to not let my WW past haunt me. I am a perfectionist and good at beating up on myself mentally for not doing things the way that I feel they need to be done. It's not healthy, and I need to stop. There is absolutely no good in continuously saying "who gains 70 pounds after losing 45?" to oneself over and over again.

My Program:
Andrew (my hubby) and I used to eat out quite a bit... and never ate healthy when we did. Now, we don't. I cook at home in the evenings, and we stick to low-fat breakfasts and lunches. We allow ourselves one "cheat" meal a week, where we go out and eat what we want. While I like to eat out, I always consider eating out as a "treat," and I find it very difficult to order healthier choices when I do.

My workouts include switching it up between:
-Bollywood Dance Workout with Hemalayaa
-Celebrity Fit Club Bootcamp Workout
-Dance Dance Revolution games
-good ol' walking!

Personal Information:
I'm living it up in D-town with my husband, Andrew. We're living in our own house, which we closed on June 13, 2008. I work full-time for HomeSight, a floor plan and virtual tour company for realtors. I also try to do the grad school thing full time too for a Master of Education degree. Busy busy!
