Weighting Patiently

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.

I've noticed lately that When I'm at work and I don't have food available to me, I want to eat all the time.  I have change in my desk and I find myself going to the vending machine whether it be for pop or food.  However, when I'm at home, I don't feel the same way.  I don't each breakfast on the weekends and I don't find myself searching for food all the time.  At work I'm consantly busy so it's not that I'm eating becuse I'm bored, so I'm not quite sure what it is. 

I need to break my terrible eating patterns.  I use a thing called My Fitness Pal and I really like it, but I don't feel like its helping me.  I can see how terrible my eating is, but I continue to do it.

My mom and I are in a competition this month.  Between the two of us, whoever loses the least amount of weight has to do something for the other.  She wants me to clean her bathrooms and I want her to vacuum my steps.  We'll see how it goes.  So far..I think she's winning.
