I had a beautiful baby girl on August 8th, 2016. (My miracle baby, after being told basically my whole adult life that natural conception would be near impossible for me.) I gained a disgusting 50 pounds during pregnancy. (Though, most people don't believe that; I just carry weight well!) I'm currently up 18 pounds yet that I would like to lose. I really need to work on the diet portion, since I'm still eating like I'm pregnant! Yikes!

I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)


(Old)
I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.


I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

~Right now, my main goal is to keep working towards someday loving my body. It's been a long bumpy road, but someday I hope to get there!





My Program:



Personal Information:
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. "



"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13


Other Information:
I LOVE hiking and taking walks.

I some day plan to attend seminary and hopefully graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Counseling.

I would love to use this degree with long-tern prison inmates that are facing release.

I have a sweet tooth bigger than anyone I've ever met. (I can eat half the bag of cake mix podwer in one sitting...just the powder... )

My hero/role model is Daniel (aka Daniel and the Lion's Den.)


I LOVE clothes and shoes.


I LOVE wedding planning.

I was a gymnast for most of my life...I miss it with a passion, but my step-daughter seems to love it, so I am living vicariously through her!

    It really is sad to see that kind of damage. We had a tornado about 3 blocks from us (I think that was 2 weekends ago when the rains first started). Thank goodness no damage. Almost miraculous!

    HUGS and hope you're doing all right.

    Oh yes, good idea to check w/them! We lucked out . . . lots of leaves down, but no trees. Strange weather!

    There was a tornado that went through last night about 3 blocks away. Knew it had to be, though I didn't see it. It was scary dark, the wind was whipping everywhere, and the rain, too.

    WE are all right, thank goodness. HOW about you?????

    HUGS
