Welcoming Contributor #6

Our Fitness Contributor

Last year, April became a stay-at-home mother to two beautiful children thanks to her husband of six years. She started her family journey unexpectedly, having gotten pregnant during her final year of law school. As an unwed mother, she struggled with a re-occurrence of depression. Her son’s father (who is her husband) has nurtured her through changing her career from lawyer to stay-at-home mother and through the losses of their son, her father and her grandmother.

Over the years, her weight has slowly risen as she worked outside the home and through her depression. Now that she is home full-time, she decided to change her focus to her family, which most importantly is her health, because without her health, she would have no family.

She firmly believes that our husband’s attraction is not only to our personality but our bodies. We, as our husband’s help meets, should try to maintain the woman he married. Although we may have had children, or we falter through other obstacles such as depression, it is our responsibility to work to get back to that woman. Sometimes that journey up is short, sometimes it’s long. What’s important is you recognizing that it’s something that you want to change and you are ready to make that change.

Her blog, 100lb Countdown is here to inspire you, guide you, help you take your lifestyle into your own hands to be the best help meet for your husband.  Her hope is to help inspire you to make small lifestyle changes to help you get to your goal.


1 Corinthians 11:9 Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

Titus 2:5 To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

Proverbs 5:18-19 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.

Stopping by her corner? Be sure to ok?

    I just stumbled across your blog yesterday and I LOVE IT!!

    I read your “What It Means” page and it stirred up so much inside of me. Because of your influence, this morning I had an opportunity to choose another book to review (from Booksneeze) and I chose the Respect Dare

    I probably wouldn’t of even considered that book a week ago. You are an awesome woman! It’s wonderful that you have a blog totally devoted to supporting our husbands! I look forward to all your future posts

    I have you added under my “daily” folder (which means I’ll visit daily) and I’m a new facebook follower!
