I am a 42 year old that seems to always be looking for that new pill to do the work of losing weight for me. I am finally buckling down AGAIN and trying to do the work myself. I am starting AGAIN! I WILL try to walk 3 miles--4 days per week during my lunch hour, MAYBE THE GYM! When I am being good and on track that is.... In addition to pushing the plate away with some portion control and trying to make better choices. PRAY FOR ME! I started about 3 years ago at my heaviest per my doctor at 196. I got down to 167...but apparently losing that weight wasn't good enough. I just quit! Been yo yoing ever since. What makes me mad is I know how to do this...why I don' my my real journey.

Member Since: 4/30/2008

Fitness Minutes: 435

My Goals:
My goals are not rocket science. I want to be healthier and have a better quality of life. I don't want to be winded when I walk up steps and I don't want to be controlled by FOOD. I want to learn to like exercise not dred it. I imagine this box will change as my mind stay tuned.

My Program:
Currently I joined a gym. I have started spinning at least twice per week. I also began a kickboxing class. So far it is ok, we will see. Food....journaling will be the plan, but I do realize what goes in and try to make better choices and portion control. All this is when I am being good and on track. Sometimes that doesn't seem to work. I seem to be my worst enemy.

Personal Information:
I have lived in Asheville, NC all my life. Not far from where I grew up. I love it here and would never leave. I have been married for 15 years to a wonderful man, I am truly blessed. I have two step children Josh age 17, Sara age 20. Two dogs, Isabelle a Great Dane and Jake our baby mutt. One cat, Coco known as Mom's man.

Other Information:
I love to listen to books on tape, anything by Nickolas Sparks and John Grisham. Now I am listening to Stephanie Meyer's. also love to shop for bargains. I love to go to Goodwill and find expensive clothes at a great price. Consignment shopping too. When I go on vacation, I always research any consignment shops in the area. I also sell 9 times per year at the Knoxville Expo jewelry...really love that too. I am also an avid EBay seller too. Lots of fun.

    Hey!! Thanks for the friend add. I'm adding you back. I'm sorry it took me so long to get over here. I've been so busy with work, that I haven't had good SP time.

    Thanks for your comments. It was a long journey, but a good journey. One I still can't believe actually happened. I know you can do the same thing. If you ever need help just let me know.

    Love your "babies"!! They are adorable.

    Thanks for adding me and for the comment on my Danes. We just love them to death! Not only is Gracie my first Dane but she is also the very first dog I've ever owned. It's because of her that we fell so in love with the breed. They are amazing dogs, just big gentle giant lap dogs is what they are!

    Btw, Gracie will be 6 in May and we think Harley is around 5. We adopted him so we're not exactly sure about his age. He's definitely a big boy though, 160 lbs.

    thanks for the comment on my page. 3 pounds is nothing to sneeze at... celebrate every loss, even the small ones, every step you take your closer to your goal... 3 will quickly become 30 before you know it!!!
