I have a daughter who is one year old. I really struggled with the postpartum period after her birth and found myself really questioning why I want to be thin and healthy. The reality of a little person looking to me as a role model is both overwhelming and inspiring. However, at the end of the day I want my daughter to see herself as strong and empowered, so I need to work on seeing myself that way as well.

Why I want to get in shape
~I am too intelligent to look stupid
~I should be physically accountable for the one life I am allowed to live
~The comfort of food and lethargy is fleeting. Period.
~I am worth it. I am worth the energy gained, the shame lost; I am worth the years gained and every single pound lost. I am worth the health I will pass onto others and the example that I make of myself.
~To be the best me I can be for myself, my husband, my daughter, my students, my community.
I AM WORTH IT
- My husband--the love of my life who is diabetic.
- My daughter--I want to be able to be active in her life and a good role model.
- The guy who finishes the race just seconds before me.
