Me and Joe - September 2005 (135 pounds here - motivation pic!)
Me and Ethan - August 2010 (160 pounds)
I'm a 29-year-old mommy of two boys. Ethan is 7 1/2 and Nolan is 4. I married my best friend on October 27, 2006 but we have been together since 2005. Grew up in Michigan but living in central Illinois. I'm trying to get back to a weight I'm comfortable with after slacking after my first pregnancy. Along with that, I just want to implement healthier eating and overall healthy lifestyle into our family's household!
It's hard being overweight.
It's hard maintaining your weight.
And it's hard losing weight.
You just have to pick your hard.
*Exercise daily without feeling that it is a chore
*Spend more time outside
*Stop worrying about food. Shift my thinking to other things!
I love: my family, babies and little kids, speaking Spanish, reading, crosswords, camping, long walks or bike rides, red wine, tea, Trader Joe's, traveling, bonfires and cookouts with friends, baseball games (both STL Cardinals and Detroit Tigers!), MICHIGAN football, being outside, Target, Food Network, Chicago, Dr. Seuss, Mitch Hedberg, country music, Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, Ben Folds, chai lattes, people watching, apple orchards, hole-in-the-wall bars, date nights, the Christmas season, blizzards, bedtime stories with my boys
