Name: Natalie

Age: 27

Married/single/SO: Married

Children: 3 (2 girls, one boy)

What is the motivating factor for joining the group? I joined mostly to get support for losing weight.

When did you start your journey? About two and a half years ago. Haven't made much progress other than having to re-lose the weight I already lost.

Do you have a goal weight/size? My first goal is to get into a size 14 dress next month (I'm a 16 right now)...it's mostly my boobs that need to go down a tiny bit. Aside from that, my first goal is to get back into my size 12 jeans. After that, to get down to where I'm proud of the way that I look.

Do you have a fitness goal? To workout 5 days a week. 

Is your family supportive? For the most part, yes. My husband struggles because he wants to eat whatever he wants and I don't want his junk in the house.
