First, an introduction. My name is Corrie, I'm a 32 year old wife, mother and full, full time business manager. I have a wonderful husband, Jason, and the most precious little girl, Augusta Ray, who will be 18 months old on Sunday. My story is a lot like the others. I'm here to get healthy! I'm here to lose weight! Most importantly, I'm here to be a role model and someone my daughter will want to look up to when it comes to fulfilling goals and living a healthy, active lifestyle. I used to be pretty active during college and after- in fact, I was a pretty healthy person till I got married. Then we moved to the beach where you would think exercise would be the first thing on the list and it moved to the last. I'm not sure what it was exactly that changed- the move, getting married, starting a new job? It could have been any of these things or a little of all of them. Either way 50 pounds found their way to me- and it's been hard to get them off! I was lucky, I didn't gain a lot of weight with my pregnancy, only 14 pounds, the weight found me before I got pregnant! I have lost those 14 pounds, plus an additional 26 since I've had Ray. She's made me want to get active to show her how much fun it can be. My goal this year is to run a 5K and to lose 50 additional pounds. I feel I will be safely within my "ideal weight" if I can do that. I'm ready to get myself back and become the BEST role model I can be!
I feel so lucky to have been chosen to be a part of the Who Wants to get Active Campaign and the "Bye, Bye Baby Weight" Team. I really feel this is going to be what I need to fulfill my goals. With the support of Jenny and our Team, I feel we can accomplish anything! Here's to a great start!
