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.
Sunday night I was in bed at 9pm which is VERY early for me. I had a terrible migraine and figured sleep would cure it. Who knew it would change my attitude.
The next morning I was wide awake at 5:30am. So..I deicded to get up and workout. Little did I know, it would change my attitude for the whole day. So much so, that I decided to do it again last night. I have felt GREAT the last two days!
One other thing that I have changed is my eating. Travis bought a Ninja blender and went smoothie crazy!! I'm now drinking several a day and all they contiain are fruits and vegetables (which I hate have grown to enjoy!) Travis even made one with celery in it and didn't tell me and I didn't even know!! I've been adding spinach and kale and I love them! People are saying that Kale is the new super food and I'm starting to believe it! I honestly feel awesome!
We'll see if this change in attitude and diet helps the weightloss!!
Have you made any changes lately?
