UPDATE (Dec 2016): No longer a "30 something" as I just turned 40. I was hoping to have this issue under control by now, but I am not looking back and dwelling on what could have been. Rather, I am moving forward with hope and faith, (followed up with hard work), that I will be successful this time and make those life changes that will set me on a healthy and fit path for the rest of my life. Let's try this again!

I am a "30 something" who grew up as the skinny kid. However, probably starting in high school, the lbs. just slow starting accumulating. 2-5 lbs. each year can really start adding up. My parents and my 3 sisters are all very fit and although I am not huge, I am tired of feeling like the the "fat sister". I hate family pictures because I feel like I am going to look even worse next to the skinny minis in my family. I know that I deserve better and deserve to be healthy and feel good about here goes nothing!!

My Program:
For me to exercise, it has to be something fun. For this reason i have serveral DVD programs that I rotate through. I love my Wii Fit, 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels, Core Rhythms (latin dancing), Kettlenetics, Tae Bo, etc. I also love riding my bike when the weather is good, but have to switch to the stationary bike once the snow arrives.
Aside from doing the little things daily...take the stairs, park FAR away from a stores entrance, etc. I have a goal to exercise AT LEAST 3x/week. I hope to increase that to more, but I am starting here.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT. I am very active in the LDS Church which is a huge part of my life. Serving as a missionary in Brazil for 18 months was a wonderful experience where I learned a lot and made so many wonderful friends.

Other Information:
I LOVE to travel. Cruises are my favorite!!
I love movies, playing games, puzzles and reading.
I enjoy watching sports. Tennis and Football are probably my favorites.
