Ash's Right Direction. I started my blog in July 2011 (Whoa! Three years ago) a couple months after my wedding, around the time I got my wedding photos back and I was shocked! I could not believe I had gotten to the size I was. I had a bad doctor's appointment which involved me being put on blood pressure medication and I didn't like that! I decided it was time for a change. I joined Weight Watchers and went to meetings. I lost 35 lbs before getting pregnant in November that year. I had an amazing little boy in July 2012, I was active at the 6 week mark, but it took me until February 2013 to finally get my head back in the game! I started counting calories with My Fitness Pal and never looked back. I am now almost 20 lbs lighter than I was pre-pregnancy and I have another 20 lbs I want to lose. I blog about my hectic life as a working mom, wife, and a girl trying to get off the extra pounds. We live an active lifestyle now that I love. We all have that tuning point, we just have to embrace it and use it to catapult us to our goals.
