Now that my daughter is here, losing the pregnancy weight is top goal, along with keeping it off and more.

Knowing that I am staying healthy for her means so much to me, and I will be able to do more than a lot of people I know.

I am not the size of the women in my family, but I don't ever intend to be any less than my high school weight. I have this chance to do awesome things, and do not ever have to constantly have that problem of the 'big' gene.

Member Since: 1/9/2009

Fitness Minutes: 7,693

My Goals:
To use the treadmill as a warm up for up to 20 minutes, then use the elliptical for up to 30 minutes or more.

Goal 1: to get my backside down to a size 8

Goal 2: to get my belly down to be able to zip my size 12 jeans up

Goal 3: to fit into regular clothes and not maternity clothes!

My ultimate goal is to jog a mile - no stopping - a nice easy pace :)

My Program:
During my pregnancy, I exercised as much as my body would allow, which was one of the smartest things I've done.
I think working out really helped me keep mobile - otherwise I would have stuck to the couch and gained twice the weight.

Once I reach all of my goals I will be able to pack away the maternity clothes!!

Personal Information:
I moved to Brooksville in August 2009. I love Florida, but do not intend to stay here my whole life.
I worked at a law firm to support my husband who was in law school and now is a state attorney.
Now I am a stay at home mom and love it!!

Other Information:
I'm a very motivational person - I love Anything positive, and I love helping people and listening to them.
An exercise partner would be EXCELLENT - I love walking, talking and connecting with someone. I had a motivator, but I need someone there at least once every day to help me.

    Hi Monica. I understand and figure I'd hear from you when you had time. Thanks for catching up on my blogs and posting again on your friend feed. Be well and have a terrific week. -- Lou

    Thanks for the great message you left in the Head to Toe Beauty welcoming section. Sometimes I get so caught up in how I look (and how far I have left to go) that I forget to "pat myself on the back and give myself a treat." Thanks for the reminder! And congrats on the pregnancy and wanting to get to a healthy weight after your baby girl's birth! I'm sure you will do whatever you set your mind to.

    Good job at working out!! emoticon You are going to get back into those clothes! It is just going to take one healthy good decision at a time. You CAN do it!!!

    Thanks for asking. I am feeling relatively good. I have hit some rough patches with the nausea (and a few times vomiting - no fun, especially on a hospital unit in the middle of giving morning report!)

    I bet this time will pass so fast. August is right around the bend and then you can do more than fantasize about that little girl of yours!!!!
