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 the holiday's are almost over, I graduated from school!!!!...and we are almost done with 2013, in other words, the busy season in the benefits world at work. I realize I have definitely been slacking in the blogging department and it has shown on the scale. I am up to just over 300lbs. I can't be afraid to say it. If I'm allowing myself to get this heavy, why should I hide it from everyone else. I topped the scale at 304.4 just two weeks ago and with the holiday's I'm afraid to step on tomorrow.
I know this blog wasn't long, but I'm making a promise to myself (and Louise) haha, that I will be more attentive to my blog! I have big things planned. I'll let you know what I weigh tomorrow!
Remember..you don't need a new year to start making changes...all you need is tomorrow.
