This is a native Michigan plant called Solomon's Seal. There is something about it that I find very peaceful.

I'm a 32 year-old female living in Ferndale, Michigan. My weight has yo-yo'd throughout the years and I am now at my highest weight ever. I went to my doctor and found out that I have perfectly normal cholesterol levels, wonderfully low triglycerides, very nice blood sugar and practically no vitamin D and associated micro-nutrients!

My weight is the reason that I have some serious vitamin deficiencies and I'm now on medication to straighten things out. However, I really need to fix the underlying issue of weighing nearly twice what I should!

I was on a pretty strict diet that included HMR shakes, but I've eased up on that and am concentrating on eating lots of fruits and veggies. I have recently begun a walking routine. It was very hard to start moving and incorperate fitness, but I am now starting to look forward to my daily walk everyday. I hope to start doing some more aerobic fitness soon. (Good workout tape suggestions are appreciated!)

In addition to my weight-loss plan, I have also started attending OA (Overeaters Anonymous) meetings to help me deal with some of the emotional issues of why I am over-eating in the first place. So far, I've found it to be very helpful and I am trying hard to remember to not "eat my feelings."

I recently eloped to Las Vegas and had a wonderful little ceremony with just me and my husband. It was perfect-exactly how I wanted my day to be! I am so lucky to have found someone that loves and understands me! Besides spending time with my new DH, I enjoy gardening, surfing the web, shopping, karaoke and acting. I'm also very protective about my privacy on the internet and I don't post a lot of pictures of myself.

My Goals:
I'd like to lose 125 pounds and become a healthier person. I also want to learn better ways of dealing with stress (besides eating!).


My Program:
Right now, I am on a very strict doctor-monitored eating plan; it is not right for everyone but is appropriate to my situation. I have a cup of coffee with creamer in the morning, a high-fiber bar, three HMR shakes throughout the day, a 300-400 calorie dinner, eight oz. of 1 % milk and unlimited low-starch vegetables. I have recently begun to substitute some different foods for some of my shakes (low-fat popcorn, fruit, lean protein serving, etc.)
