What are your fitness/health goals? Eat healthy, work out at least 3 times a week for the rest of my life.
What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I’m over 40, not fit and a diabetic. I just decided this was it, I’m done eating crap. Time to get healthy.
What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Chocolate and carbs. My weaknesses. I am an emotional eater too. I eat when I’m bored, happy, sad, doesn’t matter to me as long as I can eat.
What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I really need to drink more water, get more sleep and keep motivated!
(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? No one really. I just want my husband to look at me and think I’m the hottest woman on earth!
What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? All the cute clothes out there. I can’t wait to go shopping and be able to wear whatever I want instead of having to “settle” for what they have for the fat girl.

Hello Lovely Ladies

I'm helping with casting for a new reality show and we're looking for people who suspect that their husbands are cheating on their diets.

Did you and your hubby both commit to eating well, but think that he's having midnight snacks?

We want to partner with you to bust him in the act! It would be the ultimate "GOTCHA!" on national TV.

Very fun and light-hearted.

PAY for stories that make it on the show!


Send us an email with your contact info and interest to petpeeve101 (at) yahoo (dot) com

*Southern CA residents preferred, but send us your stories anyway!

Height: 5' 8"

Default

Screen Name: BecauseIcan

Age/Age Range:29

Family Life: Married for 10 years, 2 daughters age 7 and 4.

Occupation: Stay at home mom

Hobbies and Interests: I volunteer with the local animal shelter 2-3 days a week. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Favorite Music: Pop, rock, country, soft rock, pretty much anything made after 1970.

Favorite Color(s): blue & purple

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: I don't love exercise (big shocker) but I've become good friends with my treadmill and I'd love to have an exercise bike.

What are your fitness/health goals? I want to avoid the high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes that many people in my family have not been so fortunate to avoid. Also, I want to get below 200 lbs. and stay there!!

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I got on the scale and realized I weighed the same as I did the day I delivered my second child 269 lbs.!!! And she was born 4 1/2 years ago. Also, reconnecting with old classmates on social networks made me see that a lot of the people I went to school with look better now than they did in high school. I want to atleast look how I did when I got married "/

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Well I am fighting 3 evils right now...will power, plateaus, and wanting *other* people
to notice that I've lost 40 lbs.
What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I should exercise more, right now I do 4 nights a week. I could always drink more water. And I really shouldn't give in to temptation on occasion!!

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : Myself 10 years ago

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? A pair of jeans my husband bought me when we were dating. They've been hanging in my closet for years and I will probably cry the day they fit. Also, I want to be able to shop in any store and not have to go to the plus size section. I don't need to shop in the juniors section but I'm tired of old "granny" looking clothes being my only choice because of my size.
