My name is Lisa, I am a 43yr old widow with 4 children. My husband passed away 8 years ago and it has been a very hard, stressful, overwhelming time. I have put my life on hold for too many years, focusing completely on my children but very little on myself. It is past time to make a change. The biggest part of me doing so is getting my weight under control. My kids have already lost one parent, I am going to do everything I need to do to make sure they don't lose two! There are no other options, this weight has to go! }i{ . }i{ . }i{ . }i{ . }i{ . }i{ . }i{ "How does one become a butterfly?" she asked pensively.
