My name is Nicholette, I am 32 years old, I'm a Christian, I'm a SAHM to my wonderful 3.5 year old son & my husband and I will celebrate 12 years on September 30th (5 years married-same anniversary).
I have met many goals since I started tracking my food and activity. Right now my goal is to train for an ultra marathon which is in October of this year and get my 2014 miles in for 2014. Here's a bit about my progression:
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 08/04/13 (my 32nd birthday!)
174 pounds -- healthy BMI
150 pounds -- will ultimately depend on BF%
Update 12/30/2013, I reset my ticker to a starting weight of 200 pounds. I gained some weight back in 2013 and I think that maybe mentally restarting will help me achieve my goals.
Update 06/23/2014, I have had some issues staying on track since the beginning of the year. Really since I started running half marathons in September 2013. The more I increased my running volume the more I ate, unfortunately the ratio was off! I started my ultra marathon training today and think that I am finally ready to commit to proper fueling techniques and nutrition habits. I'm hoping to see some significant body recomp during the next 16 weeks.

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 kiddo. I want to set a good example for my family. Hubby doesn't use any app to track but through healthier habits has lost 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 and humanitarian organization that I started racing with in 2013. Now I work for them in promotions and marketing as well as an ambassador and sponsored runner. I've met some of my closest real life running friends this way.
- My son & my husband! They're great workout buddies!
- The amazing success stories of my MFP friends!
- Strong gorgeous women everywhere!
- My running family!
