I’m Ashley (McMillan) Weightman. I grew up in the small town of Wimbledon, North Dakota. In 2005 I moved to Bismarck to go to school where I graduated from the University of Mary with a Bachelors Degree in Communications and Business. I began working at the CBS affiliate as a reporter while in college and spent three years there. From CBS, I moved to Devils Lake to work at WDAZ-TV for a year, before continuing to work at WDAZ in Grand Forks. I married the love of my life Travis on June 23, 2012 and we now live in Bismarck with our three year old son, Corbin. Travis works at KXMB-TV and I at KLJ Engineering and attend Rasmussen College where I’m pursing a Bachelors Degree in Human Resources Management and Organizational Leadership.
Weight has been a struggle for me since I can remember. I do well for a while and then fall off the wagon. Four years ago I lost nearly 50lbs and was doing great. Two months after maintaining my weight, I found out that I was pregnant and gained 70lbs in nine months. I figured after I had Corbin, some of the pounds would fall off. Corbin weight 8lbs 12oz and I only lost 3lbs. Ever since December of 2009, I’ve been doing fad diets for about a month, trying the gym on and off, and eat healthy and nothing seems to be working. I’ve recently had some health issues and my doctor told me that in order to have more children and be a part of my children’s life, I need to lose weight, but most importantly, I need to do it for me.
My four day weekend was really fun! Spent it in Grand Forks eating, socializing and of course watching hockey! It was a lot of fun!! However, I'm scared to step on the scale.
I was going to work out tonight, but am so exhausted from driving and finishing up homework that my ambition is slim to none tonight. I'm promising that I'll get back at it tomorrow. My alarm is set for early morning and I have Body Pump tomorrow night.
I can tell I ate lots of terrible food and wasn't exercising. I felt like a pile of junk the last two days. I thought I was trying to eat healthy, but a salad didn't sound as good as a chicken fried steak with eggs and hashbrowns! I keep telling myself that this was it. This was my time to let go, now I'm back and ready to continue on this "adventure" I'm on.
Next time I'll talk about something I realized this weekend and how its going to help me to change my life for the better!
