About Me

Hello...I'm Hollie a thirty something wife and mom
who decided to get up off the couch and reclaim my health! 
Here is my story... 

In my family growing up I was always known as the 'lazy one'... The 'unathletic one'... or the 'couch potato'!  After being told something for so long you start to believe it and so you live it day in and day out never considering the possibility that there could be another way.  It wasn't until after I got married and had two kids that my weight started to be an issue, and like a lot of other wives and mommies out there I thought that this was just the way it was.  Boy was I wrong!  With the help of my amazing and handsome husband I've been able to transform my way of thinking and my body as well!

And After... Doesn't he do great work?!?
 Now that we've got our minds and bodies in the right place we're trying to teach our children how to live an active and healthy lifestyle as well...

My very favorite... My Lady K & I coming to the finish

Even though I've made changes I'm in no way perfect.  I struggle everyday (as you'll read)... I have ups and downs... but I'm doing it... Every darn day!  I hope you find some inspiration and maybe some motivation from my confessions!  Thanks for reading!

Hi there. My name is Liz and I write a blog called Confessions of a Former Couch Potato. I came across your site because I had a reader email me about it- she had us mixed up and was confused when she did a google search for me and ended up on your blog. My address is www.confessionsofaformercouchpotato.com or aformercouchpotato.blogspot.com and started in 2010. It looks like we have some similar blogs on our blog roll. I just didn't know if you have had similar issues. I would hate to be taking your traffic or vice versa. I enjoyed visiting your blog today!
