Looking to connect for support. Tired of giving up on myself, and every day I'm trying to make healthy changes to my lifestyle. I live in a small town in Alberta and I like to stay in. It's not unusual for me to not leave the house for an entire week during the winter. I'm really working on myself: body, mind, soul. I have been challenging myself in different ways lately; I've been trying to get out of my comfort zone and so far I've gained a lot from it. I've realized I feel best when I push my limits so I will keep it up. I'm following a low carb lifestyle to success as this seems to jive well with my medical issues (PCOS/Pre-diabetes) and it makes me feel great. Let's connect...especially if you're in to the moon, the earth, the stars, and working on yourself.

09/27/15- 312.5
10/19/15- 300.9

(10 lbs lost!)

My first goal is to get below 300 lbs. I haven't seen those numbers in a while.

My Program:
Limited carbs
Balanced meals every day
Eat breakfast!

Wake up - Drink 8oz cold water
No honey in my tea
Eat lots of fresh veggies
Prepare food ahead of time, including weighing out portions - no more eyeballing.
Eat when I'm hungry, not when I'm bored.

Personal Information:
I'm a business owner, recently moved to a very small town. I still don't know anyone and I find it very hard to make new friends here. I work from home so I tend to not get out much. I'm trying to change that.

My business gives me the opportunity to meet like-minded women, which I love. I have made so many great friends from working for myself. I am able to make a living while improving lives for women and children, and their communities, around the world. I love my job and I love making a difference.

Other Information:
I have passion.

I spend my days crafting and indulging myself with my hobbies. I am very fortunate to have been allowed the opportunity to leave the rat race to pursue my dreams.

I live with my partner and our cat in a quiet, little town.

I am a proud feminist, I participate in activism and I fight for the equality of people everywhere. (Don't mistake feminism for man-hating. I love many men, I just want to be paid the same amount for doing the same job, etc.)

    You hit the nail on the head with the emotions while sick, boy was that ever true.

    I've never heard of Echinacea, I'm going to see if I can find some, I'm desperate at the moment. Thank you for the advice!!

    Have a wonderful day. emoticon
