Hi! Thanks for reading! I’m Natalie, a 32 year old Floridian who is staying in shape. I have often struggled with my weight. But now I finally know what I have to do to maintain myself and my health. I love to cook, travel and dine out! It’s all about maintaining a healthy balance of food, fun, and fitness.
Since about 4th grade I was overweight (PIC above is from 2005). Summer of Junior year in high school I worked my booty off at the gym. This was during the “low fat” craze so I cut down my fat and overall calorie intake by probably too much. I also went to the gym about 5 days a week. I went down to 117 lbs at one point, which was too low for me.In college, I went up and down alot (mostly up!) There were too many keg parties, Pokey Sticks (the best thing ever), and 4am Taco Bell trips. By Junior year, my weight was stabilized in the mid 140′s, but I still was not completely happy or healthy.
Then I thought I could maintain at the gym but I was wrong! I kept slacking and lacked motivation. I maintained my weight but missed the fun Beachbody programs and community. Then I decided to become a Beachbody coach, so I can help others with their goals too.
Now, I mix Beachbody Programs, Running, and going to the gym to keep in shape!
It took me years to realize that me slacking off for a week always leads to slacking off for months. Tracking food and fitness works wonders…I’m not slacking this time.
Highest Weight: 160
Current Weight: 135
I’ve had a very busy 2010…I got engaged on my 30th birthday, got married to the love of my life, and moved twice!In the process I gained a little weight…but I also gained a passion for running! Now it’s time to put all my loves together to have a happy and healthy year.
Hi everyone! 2011 was an exciting year! I completed my first half marathon in under 2 1/2 hours. It was such an exhilarating day!
Also, my husband and I just moved to Modesto, California! Life in the Central Valley is so far so good. The best part it is so close to so many wonderful things in Cali. I’m so excited for more adventures!
