This photo is one of my favourites. Not only because I am slapping Wyatt in the face (he is now my brother-in-law), but because I look friggen amazing in that dress. This was during my second year in University and I was at one of my lowest weights. I could wear my favourite pair of American Eagle jeans and I had a nice little waist. I know that I have had two kids so my body shape has changed, but I know for a fact that I could be a little less on the round and doughy side.

So for this coming year I am going to take a better look at what I am eating and will drink more water (I hate water). And I will try and do some more exercise. I would like to go down a few pant sizes, as much as my new hips will allow, and I would like to have a flatter and more toned stomach. Since I am breastfeeding I have to make sure I keep my calories up a bit and not exercise super crazy hard (which really will not be an issue). I am going to take my inches as well so I can keep track of those. So here is to a new year in a couple of days and to a healthier me.


  • To lose 40lbs
  • To drop down to single digits in pant sizes
  • To drink a lot more water
  • To eat healthier meals and snacks
  • To workout more
  • To be healthier
  • To wear skinny jeans and not look horrid (yes this is a goal)

  1. Hey! If you need any tips, just let us know. 🙂 One thing that has helped Stephen a lot is to have a big bottle he fills with water – he refills it each time he empties it and gets a lot more water that way. Water was a hard one for me at first, too, but I feel so much better when I get it now. Thinking of you as you get started – it’s hard at first, but worth it in the end!
