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 my new job has been great, it's finals week at school, and I've been working out twice a day. There are definitely not enough hours in a day.
I apologize right now for any grammar mistakes. I just got done with Body Pump and I increased my all of my arms weight and they are shaking!
Last week I took my weight and measurements and things were good!! My weight didn't change much, but the inches are coming off!! I'm happy to report that I lost two inches in my waist and two inches in my hips!!! People are telling me that they can tell I've been working out and I can tell as well! Things are starting to pay off so I'll keep working hard. Oh and I forgot to mention I bought a new swimsuit top, a size smaller!!!
One thing that has changed for the worse is that at my new job I have become more sedintary. I work in an office and don't do a lot of walking. My knees are killing me lately. Going upstairs is killer and at times I don't want to walk. I guess what I'm doing is asking for your help and advice. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what they've done to make life easier on their knees?
