***Pic of me and my Woobie taken September 18, 2008***

I just turned 27 on December 15th, and I know that losing weight won't get any easier from here on out. I made it my goal to lose weight, so my husband and I can start a family. I also have a connective tissue disorder called ehler's danlos syndrome, and I think getting my muscles stronger will help them take over where my connective tissue is lacking.

I've always been a big girl. I was born over a month early and still weighed nearly 9 pounds! So, I don't expect to ever fit into a size 0 (even though that's my sister's size), nor would I want to. I just want to become as healthy as possible, have more energy, and get the most out of my life!

- Updated Jan 2007 -

I've decided to make my goals every 5 pounds, that way it doesn't feel so out of reach, and I feel like I'm making real progress. Lets see how that works!

Feel Great challenge-Week 2
So, I missed week one because of a death in the family. Should I go back to week one and create my list of goals, and then create a board?

My name is Chastity, and I've been married for almost 3 years to the most wonderful man I could ever imagine to meet!

My Buddy is Evelyn64, and she is funny, fit, and fantastic! I've been on FS since December '07.

I started out doing the ABS diet, but switched to WW when we moved in with my inlaws. I find it is the most flexible plan, and it works for me! Like Evelyn, I am trying to follow the golden rules along with WW.

My exercise plan is to go to the gym 5 days a week. MWF cardio at 5am, TTH strength training at 430pm. I was doing so well at that, but then work got crazy, and I lost my mojo. Sad
