you might be over weight .......

You know those red neck jokes. Well here is mine
You might be over weight when your Doctor of 9 years ask you "when your baby is due",
as you are holding your 6 months old in your arms, AND as he rubs your belly too.
Yes this is my life.
The only thing that makes me laugh was watching his face. I really could see the wheels turning in his head saying "OH CRAP this does not feel like a pregnant belly.
I quietly told him "um I'm not pregnant"

After that I told myself that I have to change I have to do something about this.
I started to do some exercising with my friends and lost SOME,
but not allot.
During that time my neighbor said I should join the biggest loser group her parents have.
She told me the cost only 35.00 not bad if your husband had a job. I sold some stuff and was in.
I weight in at 170 yes that is right 179 and wore a size 16 AND I was only 5.3
My sister in laws gave me some eating info and work out plans.
Here is the info Love it and it's free.
I did my first 10k June 26 at Lehi day with my sister in law.
She had to wait over 20 min for me. After that
I have done four more 10ks , one 5k and one half marathon.(13.1)
I have lost 35 pounds gone down to a size 8 and will be trying to lost 10 more by the end of the year.
Some of the people that have been inspiring to me is My sister who ran her first 5k with me.
My sister In-law Michelle who has 2 kids, and a very busy life. Every time I see her she is looking healthier and healthier.
And my other sister in-law Mary who has been cheering me and Pushing me to do some of this runs.
But most of all is my FAMILY my husband has been giving up allot for me to run.
Love that man!!!!
I'll be getting some pictures of the 13.1 mile run soon.


  1. Rachel you look GREAT!!! I've been totally impressed with you! I might need to see that same Dr. so that I can feel a little more motivated now that Brooklyn is here! (wink, wink!) I'm going to check out that website for sure.

  2. Thanks, Rach!

    You really do look great! I didn't get a chance to tell you that at Ellie's bday party. has TOTALLY helped me. I've lost 30 pounds and I still use it.

    Getting healthy isn't easy, but it's SO worth it! Good job, I'm proud of you :)
