A little about me..my name is Allie and I'm from the midwest, born and raised. I was married in June 2009 to the most loving and supportive man, Jordan. After our wedding, we were living the life..decorating our first home together, going out for drinks with friends, hosting get togethers at our house complete with appetizers and beer and eating out just about every night for dinner. Some nights we settled for fast food and others we treated ourselves to a 3 course meal at an italian restaurant. My "fitness" considered walking from the parking lot to my desk job at an insurance company. I also had some medical issues during our first year of marriage (which is another entry in itself) so needless to say, I gained some major weight!
During Christmas 2009, Jordan and I took a weekend mini-vacation to Kansas City. I was so out of energy from just walking around shopping and none of my clothes were fitting right. I went into Victoria Secret and felt like I didn't belong there. Me in Kansas City:
