I am a 57 year old single mother of 2 and a grandmother of 1. Both my children are adults. I am on this journey to improve my health and to look and feel better. I have several medical conditions but will not let this keep me down. I started losing weight about 10 years ago and have gone from 281 to 228. I was taking 3 meds for Diabetes and now take only one. I would like to discontinue all my meds for all medical conditions. Over the past few years things have taken a turn in the wrong direction and I have gained back most of that weight.
My life has been a rollercoaster ride for the past few years. I lost my sister, my mother and my boyfriend who was the love of my life. All within a year of each other. This really took a toll on me emotionally. I fell into depression. I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and that has been hard as well. I am trying to get back to where I was 10 years ago, that fight and drive I had when I started this journey.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose weight, feel better about myself and to be here for as long as my kids and granddaughter need me.


My Program:
I have recently been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. The Dr says I have probably had it a few years now and just did not know. I am changing my lifestyle by changing the way I eat and exercise. I am now trying the Eat Right 4 Your Type which is a diet for your blood Type. For me it is no grains except rice and oats, low carb and high protein.



Personal Information:
I am a 57 year single mother of 2. My son is 37 yrs old and my daughter is 29. I have one granddaughter who will be 4 in July.They are my pride and joy. I am so proud of both of them. I live in Merced, CA. I do medical billing for a living.


Other Information:
I believe "Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life. I do not Regret Yesterday, I Live for Today and Look Forward to Tomorrow!" Today is a Good Day to Have a Good Day!
