I have spent the past 14 years getting through every wonderful milestone of my child's life. Yesterday the braces came off - Yahoo!!! Unfortunately, I have forgotten about myself somewhere along the way and my body is now paying the price. I am looking at back surgery in the near future (something I have been dealing with for over 20 years) , but I know that I need to start getting stronger now. There is also diabetes in my family. I have been lucky so far by staving this off.

Finding the blurb in a magazine yesterday was one of the best things that has come my way in a long time. This site has so much that "sparks" my interest. This WILL be the year of "Me", so that I WILL be healthier not only for me, but for the ones I love.

Let's getter done!!!

Fitness Minutes: 4,110

My Goals:
My greatest goal is to become srtonger. Not only by ridding my body of excess weight, and strengthing my core, but by learning that I am part of a bigger picture - that I am never alone on this journey.

My Program:
Because I have problems with my back, my program will have to start out moderately - at least 20 minutes of some type of exercise a day. I also plan to be much more aware of my fresh fruit and veggie intake every day.

Personal Information:
I live in central NJ with my husband and daughter. I currently work as a Paraprofessional in our school district - after working 18+ years in corporate travel. I have been overweight all of my life, but had success in my early 20's when I lost 95 pounds. However, if I knew then what I am learning now, I would have been able to keep it off.

Other Information:
We only have now, so

    Best wishes with the doctor. My primary care doctor(internist) is prescription happy to but that is what they have been trained and paid to do. I call them and the pharmacist licensed drug dealers(lol). Is acuputure painful. I am going to start going back to a chiropractor that is also a nutritionist. He is on facebook and his name is Dr. Joe Esposito..My spelling is off here. I am also dealing with vertigo. Let's stay in touch...I need a buddy on this journey that understands some of the struggles. take care...
