Baby Olsen #3 was born April 21, 2008. She was 7 lbs. 13 oz. and 21" long. She is now 13 months old and is doing great. Very sweet baby! Now I need to get back to work on my body!!!

12/28/06- I have struggled with weight most of my life. However I really put myself on the back burner for the past year and a half or so and am at my highest weight (and most uncomfortable) ever. I finally got tired of making excuses for not eating right and sitting instead of moving. So, here I am................

Update 3/7/07- I am down 25 lbs. and have a whole new outlook on life! This hasn't been easy, BUT It also hasn't been as difficult as I feared either!

Update 3/28/07- I have lost 30 lb. in the 90 days I have been on SP!!! If I can do it, you can too!
GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! 7/26/07 ...50 pounds gone forever!!!

Member Since: 12/28/2006

Fitness Minutes: 371

My Goals:
New goals: Lose 13 lbs. in 12 weeks, beg.4/29/09

Old Goals (What I did before the baby came along!): I would like to be healthier and have more energy to play with my kids. My first goal is to get back into my jeans by my birthday, 3/15/07. (Made it, and have since bought smaller ones!) Then I would like to get down to what my driver's license says I weigh (175) Made it! 7/26/07...with the ultimate goal of 165 by the end of September 2007. (Made it to 175 then along came baby...)

My Program:
I am eating healthier foods and tracking everything to stay between 1200-1550 calories/day. I am exercising and shooting for at least 8 glasses of water/day. Also no soda. (I am a recovering Mountain Dewaholic!)

Personal Information:
I live in central Minnesota with my husband and 3 daughters ages 8 and 6 and 12 months. My wonderful husband is the one who found SP for me after I told him I wanted to lose weight. He is 100% behind me in this. He loves me as I am now but wants to help me reach my goals. I am truly blessed!

Other Information:
I enjoy music. I play the trombone in the Minnesota River Valley Wind Ensemble and am a beginning band instructor at the local elementary school.

I also enjoy reading, mostly mysteries, Grafton, Evanovich, etc. (Cut my teeth on The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew!)

I am also into sports. Love watching hockey, football and baseball and would be tickled if I got into good enough shape to return to playing softball and hockey.

    Just wanted to stop in and say hi, and see how things are going for ya? Looks like you've made some great progress in the past, let's keep motivated and keep up the good work. This is my first time doing the challenge and i don't wanna be on a roller coaster anymore, it's time to lead a happier and healthier life for myself and for my family. I am really enjoying this challenge and it hasn't always been easy, but it definetly motivates me and will be worth it in the long run. Good luck to you! emoticon

    Gosh, I do remember Lynda from way back. I checked her sparkpage and it doesn't look like she is active anymore. She was a hoot.

    I remember the mustang days. Got rid of the mustang about a year ago (thank goodness due to gas prices). I should probably go back to 190-ville, I just feel ashamed. I even rememeber the American Idol team we were both on. I just don't have time to keep up with Idol anymore.

    I have been on the Yellow Biggest Loser team since April '07! Geesh, what is my problem. I think I have gained 10 pounds instead of losing. Here's to a good round and lots of pounds coming off for both of us.
