Brain Child

OBJECTIVE: Reinvent my mind and body using exercise and healthy eating.

Why? Because, health-wise, I’ve had a chunky journey.
After my first child was born, I had trouble dropping the additional 50 lbs that I gained, and to make matters worse I was already overweight when I got pregnant with Lane. I struggled with my weight, watched it fluctuate with my moods, and tried a plethora of diets. Nothing worked. I didn’t lose much, and what I did lose I didn’t keep off. Soon, I began having other health problems, and I couldn’t get pregnant again. I was devastated.
I visited with my gynecologist to see if he had any suggestions about getting pregnant, but the only suggestion he made was that I get tested for Insulin Resistance. So I did. Woe and Behold, I had it. I was in my mid-twenties and nearly diabetic! I couldn’t believe it.
Following doctors orders, I cut out sugar and most of my carbs and began exercising 3 times a week. I lost 7 lbs in the first week and 30 by the end of the month. But most importantly, I got pregnant with my son.
My son and I, 4 years after this wonderful doctor diagnosed me with Insulin Resistance and catapulted me into changing my life.
Vin was born in the Spring of 2008, and I went right back to my diet and exercise plan. Barely any sugar. Barely any carbs. Regular workouts. In the years that I changed the way I lived, I lost a total of 70 lbs!
Now, I've got to maintain it.
