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.
So I have been slacking in the blog-o-sphere lately. Last week I had 4674513 things to do which included meetings for work, trying to get two workouts a day in, and it was finals week at school. Needless to say, my diet lifestyle change has also struggled this week.
Friday night we went to a hockey game so I ate there. Saturday I spent all day running around because my car decided it wanted some new wheels which took FOUR hours and I had an ice cream date with a friend and my son. That night we were at a basketball game and my husbands parents took us out to eat. Yesterday, I worked a hectic 12 hour day and the last thing I wanted to do was come home and cook so we went out again. And today, my son and I had a lunch date at the Chinese Buffet when oen of my friends and her son. Therefore, my life has been consumed with food in the last four days.
I need to figure out a way to energize myself and make healthy choices. I tried eating a salad everyday, but I got sick of the salad real fast. I'm afraid to get back on the scale and see what that Tremendous twelve did to the numbers.
I'll let you know what it looks like when I weigh-in tomorrow.
