Clean eating, that's where it's at. If everyone chose to eat like thier great granmothers did we would all be fit and fine. I am going to practice an old idea, "don't eat anything you great grandmother would not recognize as food of her day". Meats, fruits and vegetables, and grains. That the simpliciity of it, lol. Hi, my name is Laura, I am 50, have a wonderful man and three children, Jeana, 30, Emily, 22, and Ben, 14. We live on seven little acres and like things the old way, I don't own a microwave, we use wood heat as much as possible, I repurpose everything. I don't believe in the throw away way of life our society has become. I try to be as much of a stay at home mom as possible, I sell on ebay, amazon and If you throw it away, it's money in the bank for me. My passion in life has always been to sell. I have had hundreds of garage sales because it's good money, I now sell on these sites and I will do anything to stay at home. My 14 year old son Ben is a cancer survivor of retino-blastoma. He had had right eye removed and wears a prostisis and has been doing well. He was diagnosed at three. He is my hero. So I will do what I have to too stay home.

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goal is to loose weight slowly and strive towards a healthier lifestyle. To choose healthier alternatives for myself and family.

My Program:
The program I wish to start with is to just rein myself in to eating 3 meals a day. And a guiding factor is "No Sweets, no seconds, no soda, and no sugar. This way of eating is my way of being in control.

Personal Information:
I am from a very small town on the Canadian boarder, on the United States side. Nearest towns are Massena, Canton and Potsdam and I am 3 hours away from Syracuse.

Other Information:
I like the old way of doing things , first and only microwave of ten years died, never will have one again, like hanging clothes out to dry, love homesteading. cooking, gardening, also sell on Ebay, mostly books and vintage items. Don't like alot of bills and love the save game. I am fascinatied with the Great Depression and how they did not waste anything. I like having things in my home that have a purpose, not just for show. We put in small wood stove this year, saved hundreds of dollars in heat bill. Goes right back to that homesteading mentallity I have. I like to do things the old way, makes me happy, chickens make me happy too.
