Recapturing the skinny me!

Hi! My name is Audrey! I am a 28 year old housewife and mother who has been struggling with being overweight (and obese) for nearly a decade. I used to be in great shape (115lbs and a dancer), but being in shape turned into being out of shape quite quickly after high school and ceasing the dance lessons that had kept me fit and trim all my life.

Hi! My name is Audrey! I am a 28 year old housewife and mother who has been struggling with being overweight (and obese) for nearly a decade. I used to be in great shape (115lbs and a dancer), but being in shape turned into being out of shape quite quickly after high school and ceasing the dance lessons that had kept me fit and trim all my life. Now that I am a mom I feel that regaining my previous healthy lifestyle needs to be a priority so that I can lead a long, happy, healthy life with my family.

My daughter, Xena, is a little bundle of energy who often leaves me out of breath and anxious about everything that she can get into. She's super smart an has been walking and running since she hit 10 months, rapidly followed by her being able to solve all childproofing that happens to stand in her way of the trouble she intends on getting into. I cannot afford to not be able to keep up with her! Added on to her usual trouble is her new jealous streak since the addition of her baby sister, Isis, to the family. My diligence has had to be increased tenfold since bringing her home from the hospital. I can't quite decide whether Xena is well intentioned and trying to help, or if she's trying to hurt her sister. Either way, it keeps me in my toes.


I've been a member of SparkPeople now for longer than I can remember, but really started using the site and all it's resources this past October. And let me tell you... I love it! I don't know why I wasn't more persistant before, but not I have the will and motivation to make things happen!

Now that 2012 is about to begin, I am going to travel my journey in earnst. No more procrastination, no more excuses. It's time to turn my life around and be the person I want to be!

Personal Information:
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters.

Prior to meeting my husband I weighed right around 115lbs. (HS Junior) After meeting him and becoming "comfortable", and after having previously quit dance classes I shot up to 275lbs.

After experienceing an ectopic pregnancy, I lost a little over 100lbs, but I gradually gained it back until I was just under 200 again.

When I became pregnant with my daughter I lost about 10 lbs before gaining it back with another 15.

2 weeks after having her I was BELOW my pre-pregnancy weight, but then gained it back again, right up to what I was before giving birth.

Finally almost got back to my pre-pregnancy weight only to discover that I was pregnant again! Gained 36 pounds this pregnancy, and am happy to say that I'm close to having them back off again!

Other Information:
I really enjoy being outdoors. I also enjoy reading, dancing, and singing.

I someday hope to learn to play an instrument (maybe guitar or bass).

I LOVE my daughter more than anything

Thanks for the blog comment! I've been feeling slightly better since the weekend, and I'm seeing my chiropractor again tomorrow.
