performance: losing 1.0 lb a week
I'm 30 years old, 5'7, and live about 10 minutes from Knoxville, TN. I'm married, have 2 sons, 3 years old and 9 months old, and am staying at home for the first time ever. I love to be outside, I'm very active, and love to work out.
I was heavy all my life until 2000 when I lost 70 pounds in a year. I became addicted to working out, and was in GREAT shape for several years. I was thin, muscular, and better than ever as an athlete. I want that back.
Getting married and having children have obviously changed my lifestyle and the amount of time I have to devote to working out. I think about it all the time, and it's a constant battle. I know how I lost weight before, but that isn't working this time because my body is a lot different at 30 than it was at 21. As a wife and mother, it would be easy to let myself go and make excuses for being overweight, but I want my boys to grow up with a healthy, active, in-shape mom.
I'm much more comfortable with my body right now than I was this time last year (40 lbs. heavier), but I know what I have been in the past. I'm going to get that back and be healthier about my diet than I was the first time I lost weight. Competition keeps me motivated. Sometimes it's with myself, sometimes it's with a piece of clothing that I want to fit into, sometimes it's with a girl that I think looks better than me. Whatever works. :)
