|UDMB Band Banquet- November 2005|
Above is from the UDMB Band Banquet....one of our first big dates, right after we became an "official" couple. We had met less than a month before at a birthday party for Jen C. We then spent 2 very challenging years in SD while I pursued my master's degree in animal nutrition. I successfully finished my degree but not without adding quite a lot of weight along the way, mainly in the form of fast food.
When we came home to visit for Christmas 2007 I was at my heaviest weight....and I was miserable, sluggish, lethargic, and it didn't stop me from stuffing my face. Up until I saw the holiday pictures I was in denial about how much weight I had truly gained. There really was no denying it after that.... I tried, albeit briefly, to lose weight but after going on a treadmill 2-3 times a week for almost a month, I fell off that completely as soon as Adrian stopped and quit that gym in shame.

|Mt. Rushmore- March 2008|
We came back to the east coast for good in late September 2008 and stayed at my parent's farm for a couple months. Right before Thanksgiving, Adrian got a job at the Gettysburg Times and we moved to Gettysburg together! I had started Curves in Rising Sun and kept up with it when we moved. I got my job with Banfield in Feb 2009 which allowed us to start planning for the big W word.....WEDDING!!!
|August 29, 2009- Married! So happy!|
|Surrounded by family and friends|
|Honeymoon in Puerto Rico, September 2009|
When we came back from our awesome honeymoon in Puerto Rico I realized that Curves wasn't going to cut it and I needed to drastically change something.....which is why I joined weight watchers on October 21, 2009. Then the weight finally started to come off, with a strong dose of love and support from my wonderful husband!!
