What it's all about

Before:  


I'm a 44 year old mother of 4 that spent the later half of her 30's either pregnant, nursing, or binge-ing on bacon laced baked goods.

I have gained and lost the same 25 lbs at least 4 times in the last 5 years.

I started running when I was 42.

I started doing triathlons shortly thereafter.

I have worked out 4-5 days a week for the last 26 months.

I have only lost 4 pounds.

I am 5' 4",  and currently 192 lbs.

I am a fat girl.

I am trying:
-to be a good example to my kids
-to become healthier
-to lose weight
-to not become horribly bitter
-to not compare myself to others
-to become a better athlete
-to look the part of a triathlete

I am TRI-ing!
