My name is Nicholette, I am 32 years old, I'm a Christian, I'm a SAHM to my wonderful 3 year old son & my husband and I celebrated 11 years on September 30th (4 years married-same anniversary).
I have been tracking since June 13th 2012 (on MFP since August 20th). My goal is to get to 160 pounds then reevaluate. This will put me well within a healthy weight/BMI for my 5'10" height. My biggest goal however is body composition. I want to be at 20% body fat and fit beautifully into a size 5/6. These goals can take as long as they need to happen. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
SW: 300 pounds
275 pounds **reached 7/9/2012
250 pounds **reached 9/8/2012
225 pounds **reached 11/05/12
199 pounds **reached 01/11/13
190 pounds **reached 04/22/13
180 pounds **reached 180.7 on my 32nd birthday 08/04/13
174 pounds -- healthy BMI
160 pounds -- vanity weight goal, will ultimately depend on BF%
Update 12/30/2013, I reset my ticker to a starting weight of 200 pounds even though when I started I was at 300 pounds in June 2012. I gained a small amount of weight back in 2013 and I think that maybe mentally restarting will help me achieve my goals.

Why I want to get in shape
I want to be healthy!!! I want to continue to avoid the weight related illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, joint pain, high cholesterol, heart disease, etc.
I want to be fit!!! I want to be strong! I want to be Super Mom! I want to live a healthy lifestyle. I want to play sports as an adult. I want to out run my toddler. I want to set a good example for my family. Hubby doesn't use any app to track but through healthier habits has lost close to 100 pounds as well. He's within his ideal weight range and now will begin focusing more on body composition.
I don't want my son to ever remember me being overweight. I don't want him to ever worry about my health. I want to enjoy a long life with him & my husband! ❤❤❤

3WRaces is the local race organization that I started racing with this year. I was selected as an ambassador and sponsored runner for them in December 2013. RMRR is my running club; Rocky Mtn. Road Runners. I also run with RRS; Road Runner Sports Westminster, RR; Runner's Roost Louisville, and EH; Endurance House, all of which are informal types of running groups. I've met some of my closest real life running friends this way. 😊
Fairly new obsession with running...
1981-1999 races ran: 1
2000-2012 races ran: 1
- My son & my husband! To inspire my whole family!
- The amazing success stories of my MFP friends!
- Strong gorgeous women everywhere!
- My running family!
