Hi all! My name is Kasey Turner and I'm new to Skinny Jeans. I have been married 8 1/2 years and have 2 kids. I just finished my Bachelors in Elm education and will be student teaching in the spring. My husband works for U of P and I'm a SAHM. I enjoying reading, going to the lake, camping, GNO's, quading and hanging out with my family. I am a member of another health blog and I know that it does work! My story is much like everyone elses. I'm up and down all the time. I struggle each and everyday, but since my daughter was born 4 1/2 years ago I made it my goal to workout, get fit and eat healthier. For me, life happens and with that my weight goes up. I have never given up on exercise though and I think that has helped me a lot, even when my eating habits were in the toilet. Last summer events in my life pushed me to an all time high. I gained 25 pounds. I was 174, which was what I weighed after I had my daughter. It took me 9 months to gain it, and 5 months to lose it. As of today I have lost 28 pounds. It is my goal to not allow my health to go to the wayside just because I'm sad or mad that things aren't working out the way I want them to. My kids need to see a healthy mom that can keep up with them. It was hard when I was heavy. I still have some pounds to shed and being a part of another Biggest Loser I know I can do it! If we all share our ups and downs, daily tricks, and exercise triumphs each week I know we can all achieve our ultimate health goals!
