One step at a time.

Member Since: 8/24/2008

My Goals:
At my heaviest, I weighed 290 lbs. I've lost and gained back the same weight over and over again. Right now I'm climbing out of a hole that left me near the starting point again on my weight loss path, but I've never given up trying to be healthy.

My Program:
---limit portions
---continually build up my exercise time
---get rid of aspartame from my diet and replace it with stevia
---choose fresh unprocessed food when possible
---exercise regularly
---stretch everyday for mobility and flexibility
---be aggressively thankful for everything

Personal Information:
I am a 40-ish, happily divorced Texan who is shy, quirky, spiritual, and working on being a more confident me. I am getting more comfortable with who I am, accepting my faults and celebrating my successes. I do medical billing for a living and I work in a cubicle, which fits my personality perfectly because I am an introvert and can listen to the radio all day (I listen to local talk radio, various programs on Truth Frequency Network, Wretched Radio, or music on my mp3 player.) I have a very simple life, which I am thankful for, I've had enough drama in my past to last me forever so simple is good.

Other Information:
I love to read anything from self-help books to Stephen King. I am interested in politics and social issues. I love animals and have a calico cat and am proud to be a crazy cat lady who feeds and shelters any stray cat passing through. Life can be so difficult and ugly so I appreciate funny people who can find the humor in things and don't take themselves too seriously. I love scary movies (the gorier the better!), playing on Facebook, listening to political/religious podcasts, listening to music (all kinds but classic rock is my favorite), working sudoku and crossword puzzles, playing solitaire and mah-jong, and watching tv (I like The Walking Dead, Big Brother and Survivor, Orange is the New Black, Ray Donovan, and a lot of others.)

    Thank you so much for my Frip Frops. How did you know that was what I wanted? You are so good. How are you coming along with finding a good Ramadan recipe? Good luck! emoticon

    I called you and don't know if you got the messages or not. Vicki drove the truck to work today and we need to wait for the car so we can take Abbie to the all night clinic. She is worst now than when I talked to you. Poor baby! You will probably be in bed but we will have her put to sleep. Talk to you on break tomorrow.
    Hugs, Mom emoticon

    Hooray!!!! Congratulations on your Spark Mail! I guess it pays to nag! I like your new wallpaper and I'm happy to see your old Profile Picture. I looked in the "goodies" for a hair & dust bunny picker-upper but didn't see one. Now - I won't mention you writing or not writing on your page anymore!!!! (Do we believe that??)
    Have a spiffy day! Hugs, Mom
