My name is Jaime! I am a 25-year old college graduate working on my Masters in ESL education. Once finished, I plan to teach children who don’t speak English as their native language. Currently I’m a permanent substitute teacher on Long Island! I started this blog in order to guide me through my weight loss journey. I just got married on September 23, 2011 to my wonderful husband Jhon (yes, that is how he spells his name) and couldn’t be happier! For my wedding I managed to lose 72 pounds, something I’ve been dreaming of for years! Since the wedding I’ve been working on maintaining my weight, which is something I’ve always had an issue with. I have my good days and my bad days but overall I truly believe I’ve made progress!
Even though the wedding is over with, which was the reason for beginning this blog, I’m going to continue tracking my eating habits, exercise, and daily life. In January of 2013, I plan to begin losing another 35-40 pounds to reach my ultimate goal! Until then I will work on maintaining where I’m at weight wise and my physical strength and endurance. Hope everyone will enjoy the journey with me!

Christmas 2010. I still can’t believe I ever looked like that!
This is a picture of us on our wedding day after I lost 72 pounds!
I’ve come so far and absolutely feel amazing! I’m extremely proud of everything I’ve accomplished. All my hard work has paid off! I’m excited for the new year to arrive so I can begin the journey that will lead me to my ultimate goal!
