About Me

About me

Hmm... Well for starters I am a 29 year old wife and a mother. My husband and I have known each other for over 15 years and have been married for nearly 5. He keeps my laughing and that is a very important thing in this world! He have so much fun together. My son is 16 months old and is a toddler in every sense of the word, he is of course the light of my life, and while I realize that I have to want to be healthy for me, part of all of this is for him too. I want to be active with him, and I want him to be proud of his mom!

Other than this weight loss journey, my hobbies are knitting and doing genealogy. I try to stay busy and and having a more active lifestyle needs to be part of what I keep myself busy with.
