I am 27 and happily married to my college sweetheart, Chris. We have two beautiful baby girls- G is 2 1/2 years old and E is 8 months old. We live in Dallas. Last year was my 5th year of teaching 3rd graders. I quit my job in May to stay at home. I mostly love staying at home, I sometimes miss teaching and planning and talking to adults on a regular basis! I plan to go back someday. I grew up watching my mom do weight watchers and she still knows how to eat healthfully. Weight watchers is what we know, so that's what Shan and I will stick to. I have a wonderful family! I have 2 other sisters and a brother, which makes me one of 5. My husband is the oldest of 10 and its always a party at their house. I have always, always loved food. I can always eat, even if I am not hungry.
Why I need to lose weight::
I am 27 years old. 27 years old people!!!! I could stand to lose up to 45 pounds. I am still wearing maternity clothes, most of which are black-remember black is slimming! (why do you think this blog is black??) This summer, when I am trying to survive the hot Texas summer with my two little ones, you will find us at the pool. And I would like for you to find me at the pool without a t-shirt and shorts covering me up! I will want a real tan. I want to feel good about body again, like I did about 25 lbs ago. I know how to lose weight- knowing is the easy part. Its the actual DOING that is hard for me. This blog will help me DO!
I could probably go on and on here, but here are foods that I have trouble saying no to:
bread and (real) butter
any and all chocolate
