My name is Vicki King. My husband and I are missionaries in former East Germany. I met Danielle over ten years ago when I was a short-term missionary in Spain and she was first coming to Spain with her family.
I have three children ages 4, 3, and 7 months. As often happens, I have gained just a little more weight with each child. This time though I am determined to get it back off. This picture was taken during a little vacation our family took at the end of September. When I looked at it I realized how much I had really gained (looking at my arms) and decided I would not stay that way.
I would eventually like to get back down to what I weighed when I got married - 145 lbs; but my goal for this challenge is just 10 lbs. I currently weigh 173 lbs. I am tall (5 ft. 10 in.) so I can hide extra weight pretty well. But I really want to get back down to the weight I know is good for me, and where I feel good! The next few months are going to be unusually busy for me (we are hoping to move, as well as all the other missionary wife responsibilities) plus I have three small children. But I hope this challenge will give me the extra motivation to seriously start working toward my goal!
