Tell me that I can''t and I will show you that I can! I''ve been at this way too long. Lost and maintain 50lbs, but time to go beyond that. Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Project
MakeYourself A little bit about me personally: My name is Elyssa, or Ellie. I''ve been married for 10 years to a musician and my only love, Joshua - who I never call Josh. We have three amazing boys - Isaiah (9), Daston (10), and my stepson, Braeden (13). I am open minded, passionate, and friendly... But as a Sagittarian, also known to be stubborn, and opinionated. I like tattoos and piercings. I do not like a certain texture of food - like cream styled corn, tapioca pudding, or jello - EW! I work because I have to, but hope one day to be able to work because I am passionate for it. I LOVE going to the gym for a good workout and I love the impact this has had on my life, it''s more than just physical. I live in Ontario, Canada. I collect quotes. I believe our thoughts create our reality, and the Universe moulds it. I am mindful of Karma. I like butterflies. I love music and I love singing even though I really have no talent for it - and I love that my husband encourages me even still. I have no regrets. Sometimes I worry too much. My life is busy, crazy, and hectic but I wouldn''t trade it for anything in the world. I love my husband and 3 boys beyond words. In a nutshell, this is me. "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." I have struggled with managing portions, and bingeing - but I feel like I finally have control over this!!! I still struggle with being self conscious and low self esteem, but little by little I am learning to overcome this - I am building confidence. Recently my biggest challenge is time - I work full time, my hubby works full time on an opposite shift to me... working through it. My sons are very active and I will teach them to live a healthy lifestyle - which I can only truly do by being a living example. It''s not just about me anymore... I work out at the gym, and at home. My fav video for home right now is "Biggest Loser Bootcamp" - Bob is making me work for it! "Nothing tastes as good as fit feels!" Anon I am doing a weigh-in every Monday. And on the first of each month, I will weigh-in and take measurements. Height: 5''9" Highest weight: 239.4lbs / 35.3 BMI - September 2009 Goal: 155-160 My ideal weight is about 154lbs, according to this calculator (http://web4health.info/en/answers/ed-dia-
weight-ideal.htm) "Change the voices, in your head, make them like you instead" ~Pink Or on Facebook, come ''like'' my page Project: Make Yourself!

I want to be a 'funner' mom, and more exciting wife!

* Fruits/veggies, 3+/day
