Hi! My name is Carrie and I joined this fitness challenge 3 years ago. I started losing weight and was on a roll when I developed what I thought was the stomach flu. Turns out, it wasn't the stomach flu...I was just pregnant. While I had every intention of staying fit throughout my pregnancy within my first Doctor's visit I was told I wasn't allowed to exercise since I was having issues with spotting.
Long story short...my child was born and she has not been a good sleeper for over a year. Finally this past August she started sleeping through the night every night not just sporadically, but we were starting new jobs and had just moved and were settling in to our new lives and I was incredibly busy.
Fortunately one of the perks of my new job is that I have a fitness center at my disposal and the membership is included. They have also started a new wellness program and are encouraging the staff to get healthy! So since I've been wanting to (and I'd already started going to the fitness center pretty faithfully for the 2 weeks prior to finding out about this challenge), I figured I'd join and stay motivated!
While I did take my measurements yesterday, I'm not the sharing type. Don't worry, I'll let you know if I lose inches or gain inches. But until I get a bit smaller, I'm not about to let you all know what exactly those starting inches are. :)
That's about it. Here's to getting fit and staying fit this time!
