- I am a small town girl living the big city life with my superhero hubby and our superhero- in-training son! I love Jesus and junior mints and have a secret addiction to Neil Diamond and Cat Steven's music. I love a good theme party, the smell of pretty stationary, a good book and a glass of ice tea with an orange slice in it. I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world.

I just want to ditch the stretchy pants
I love food. I always have but especially sweets. Every tooth in my mouth is a sweet tooth. Those of you who don't struggle with weight will cringe at this but I am the woman who can eat an entire pan of brownies. If I make a pan of brownies and consume a few, then throw out the rest of the pan in utter despair to avoid eating the rest of the brownies I will then go back in the trash can an hour later and dig them out to eat. I have done this. I'm not proud of it but I am just being honest about my struggle with food. In addition to out of control portions when I eat I also hate exercise. I did workout before my son was born but I also had the time. Now my life consists of wrangling a head strong toddler around all day and imagine my surprise and disappoint that the pounds just literally haven't jumped off of me after becoming a mom! I feel as though I chase and bench press this kid all.day.long and what? Nothing comes off! So this is my journey towards HEALTHY. I'm not looking for the elusive size of yesterdays gone by. I want to be and feel good about my outside just as much as I feel good on the inside. I started working out a local gym this morning where my son cried the entire 45 minutes I was away from him in the kid's area. I will take one meal at a time, one day at a time and I hope you will help me by encouraging and supporting me in my successes and my failures (because there will be plenty I promise you).
