On Losing Weight

I made a resolution in 2012 to take care of myself.

You can read about it all right here.

A few quick stats/thoughts on my progress:
This is 60 pounds down.
  • I started out this year using the My Fitness Pal app. After losing 20 pounds, I made the switch to Weight Watchers in March 2012. 
  • I've currently lost over 70 pounds. My goal is to lose 89 pounds total. 
    • Yes, in case you're wondering, that means I could have been on The Biggest Loser because of the amount of weight I need to lose.
    • I may go beyond the 89 pound mark. 
  • In the spring of 2012, I decided to take it to the next level and start running. I'm new at it, but I write about it regularly in case you're new at running too! You can read all about my running experiences here
  • I ran my first half-marathon last year. Those posts can be found here and here.

  • I'm doing this because I want to be healthy now and in the future. I also know that so many people have problems having kids these days. I pray that we don't have that issue. That being said, I don't want the reason why we can't have kids to be because I'm not taking care of my body like I should be.  
  • I used to weigh 239 pounds. My goal weight is 150. 
  • In 2013, I started doing a Link-Up for Healthy Train Tuesday since accountability is huge in this deal!  Come link up with me!
  • In 2014, I had a baby girl named Lily. I'm back on track to lose weight again. I only have 35 pounds to lose this time. So that makes my goal weight of 165. Weight Watchers and running again!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! I love to talk about my life style change!
