I am 27-years-old. I have a two-year-old daughter and recently became engaged to my boyfriend of over 6 years. After having my daughter in December 2010, I quickly realized how little "me" time was left over. I made every excuse in the world to not exercise, but I decided last summer enough is enough and that I needed to start MAKING time. I lost some weight but gained most of that back over the last 6 months (those darn holidays!). I'm ready to get back on track again. I have a gym membership - I signed up for a 15 month membership in October - and am definitely not "getting my money's worth" because I've only been there a handful of times. I definitely prefer to go for runs outside, but it's not easy during Iowa winters!

My fiancÚ and I both love to cook - although I seem to do more of it! I am trying to convert him to my healthy versions of meals and just may have to take over the kitchen in order to make this happen!

I lost 30 pounds about 6 years ago with the help of Sparkpeople.com. I gained most of it back by not sticking to healthy habits. Then I gained 40+ pounds when I was pregnant and reached 202 pounds. I want to put my clothes on and not have them feel uncomfortable. I want to feel good about myself again!

I am confident that I will reach my goal if I take this one day at a time and if I don't get discouraged if I slip up every now and then.
