5 Question friday (always on Sat for me!!)

This is by far one of my favorite blog rolls.  if  you want to partcipate just stop by Five Questions Friday and join!!!

1. What's your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?
wow... thats a hard one....  i would say Zebra cakes.  Although i cant think of the last time i've had one.  I bought a box the last time i went grocery shopping, but i still haven't  opened it.

2. What food will you not eat the low fat version of?

i cant stand the taste of diet sodas. I know since i'm trying to loose weight, I should probably drink them, so i may just have to give up sodas all together then.

3. What's your favorite way to cool off during the summer?

nothing like a nice margarita on a patio to cool you off!!! I'm gonna have to find a skinny version, otherwise the "Mambo Taxi" may continue to leave its spare tire around my waist

4. What's your favorite summer read?
50 Shades of Grey Trilogy Covers

without a doubt, the 50 shades series... omg!!!! cant wait for books for and five!!!  I finished all 3 in 2 weeks.

5. What are you doing to stay cool in this awful heat?

stay inside.... or by the pool, but its almost too hot for that too!

A Change Gone Come....

Depending on how long you've known me, or how long its been since you've seen me, you might know me with two very diffrent body structures.

if you met me in highschool i looked like this (105lbs)...

if you met me in college i looked like this (110-120)...

if you met me when i began teaching, I looked like this (130ish)...

when i got married (130-140)...

pregnant (150-190)....

post baby (160)...

my heaviest  (180)

start of seporation (165lbs)....

and now (170)....

(sorry for the crazy pic size, blogger wouldnt let me adjust them)

so as you can see i've gone through quite some changes over the years....

So what happened...

well i grew up super active. i played softball, did cheerleading, and competive dance team, and ate what ever the hell i wanted (excuse my french) . 

My freshman year of college i tore my ACL.  I was on cruches for a year, then had surgery and lost even more weight, and while i couldn't dance like i used to, i was still hiking across campus daily.

after i graduated, i moved back home with my parents and thanks to my super healthy and fit mom, i was still exercising pretty regulary.

However, when i moved out on my own, i got lazy, and still ate the same way.  So 6 years later I found myself 50 pounds heavier, and at my heighest nonpregnancy weight of 180  (sadly my pregnancy weight wasnt much higher).  I lost 20 lbs pretty quickly last year, with the help of my friends at work, exercise,  my mom, , and the start  of my seporation. 
But that didnt last long.  I began coaching again, to make extra money while we were seporated, and due to a hectic schedule found my self constantly eating fast food, and never working out, and soon gained 10 lbs back. where i am now. 170lbs and not liking the weight.

So I met with my doctor and we came up with a weightloss plan. 

I hope to track my weightloss over the next few months.
  I'm sure there will be plenty of highs and lows, and i will need all the support i can get.

My goal is to loose 30-40 lbs.  I will be exercising, eating more healthy, and taking a prescribed medicine from my doctor. 

I will have monthly check-ins with my doctor, to weigh in, take measurements, and have an EKG.

I will keep you posted!
