|At my heaviest, I weighted a 191 lbs. Never again! :)|
Hello and welcome to "Mom Getting Fit", a blog dedicated to my life and the changes I am making to live it healthier.
My name is Shelly Eubanks, I am a 37 year old mom to 3 wonderful children and a grandma to the cutest baby girl I have ever seen :) I live in Kansas City, MO.
I live a busy life between work, kid's school/activities, get-togethers with friends and the every day running of a household. I am fortunate enough to own my own company and have worked from home for about 10 years. Working from home has many advantages but it also comes with disadvantages.
One of the disadvantages was being too tired to cook dinner at the end of the day and too tired to exercise. So instead we ordered take-out and sat on the couch at night to relax after a long day of work.
As you can imagine, years of this bad practice led to weight gain, the feeling of always being tired and having no energy! After years of living this way, it was time for a change!
I would like to say that I had an "Ah Ha" moment and decided to make the change but nothing exciting happened. I just woke up one day and decided I was tired of living like this. So on Dec. 9th, 2008, I joined a new gym that had just opened up in our town and I started eating better.
Now I have had several gym memberships in the past and at one point I had 3 different memberships (Curves, Local Gym and the YMCA) and didn't attend ANY of them. I have also dieted before using the Weight Watchers program and have lost weight only to gain some of it back.
This time it was going to be different and I just knew it. This time I am making permanent changes to my life. I'm NOT on a diet BUT I am eating healthier than I have ever ate in my life (including when I was doing weight watchers). I am exercising more than I have ever have in my life and for once I actually look forward to going to the gym everyday.

I am amazed at the changes I have made in my life and amazed at the changes I am going through mentally and physically. I have went from a fast-food-junkie-loving-couch-potato mom to a cleaner-eating-active mom and I am loving it!
Do I struggle? Of course I do! Has it been easy? Of course not! But I am determined and willing to make it last and within this blog I will share my journey through this lifestyle change. I hope you will join me for the ride - it's sure to be an exciting one!!
