Hi All! I’m setting up my Summer Slim Down group and I’m already getting questions about when my next group will be! I’m thinking August 4th! Please just email me with the subject “August Challenge Group” to apply. Also, if you’d like to change the lives of others and coach yourself, feel free to email me as well! Let’s do this!
Well, today is the day guys!
Less than a year into my weight loss journey, and I’ve officially lost 100 pounds.
The top left picture: 285. Top right picture: 270.
It’s been a long ride, but I’m so proud of myself right now! I know I have a long way still to go, but this is a huge milestone to me and I am so proud of what I’ve done with my life. :)
Formerly obese and unhappy, one day I decided I’d had enough. I’ve lost 160 lbs, become a 2x marathoner, triathlete, & I’m currently training for a 50 mile ultra marathon this August.
Getting happier & stronger each and every day.
It’s never too late to change your story.
I’m working for the body I want, while appreciating the body I have.

Rather than just having big goals, I decided that I want to set weekly goals for myself. And then one big Monthly goal.
Goals for week 2:
1. Track points every day
2. Earn at least 50 activity pointsDistance to monthly weight goal: 12 lbs
He’s my inspiration and motivation to get back to where I was and then go even further.
I want to be the type of mom that is active with her kids. I want to be able to go running and biking with them, chase them around the playground, take them to amusement parks and be able to ride the attractions with them. I want to instill a healthy lifestyle in my children. I want to promote healthy eating and staying active.
And I want my kids to be proud of me. I never want Mason to have to go through shame because his mom is obese. I never want him to be embarrassed to point me out to his friends.
But above all else, I want to be there for him and any future children Greg and I have. I want to watch my kids grow up and have kids of their own. I want to be as healthy as I can be so that my kids will have their mom around for a very long time.
Getting healthy is no longer just about me. Everything I do from here on out is to give my son the best mom that he can have.
I started counting points last Thursday. I ended up not tracking over the weekend with the holidays and eating potluck meals. I started back up with tracking and really began focusing on eating well around Tuesday.
That being said, here’s how I did:
It’s a start!
Destroy the assumption that all fat girls have low self esteem. You don’t like my body? That’s on you, not me.
After nearly 9 months of activity restriction and 6 weeks postpartum, I am officially cleared to resume all normal activities!!
I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am to be getting back into my old routine! I am beyond ready to lose the pregnancy weight and keep on going until I hit my goal!
Plus, as an added incentive, I have a very big goal set for this spring that I am aiming for! Will reveal more as it gets closer!
So to work on being healthy, I am tracking points once again. I had my best success weight loss wise on Weight Watchers and coupled with a solid fitness routine, I know I can slim down and get back to post pregnancy condition in no time!
I’ll get in my exercises during Mason’s naps and between trips to the zoo (we got a pass) and walks around the block, I know that summer will be productive!
And that’s not even including my Zumba classes that I will be resuming!
Let the post baby body rehab begin!!!!
