About Me

I am a proud wife and mother of 3 girls, 2 dogs, & 3 cats. I lost my job last year, due to budget cuts in education. I feel sick over the loss. I have decided to overcome my depression and weight gain, by turning my life around. First item - weight loss. I want to feel better, have more energy, see my kids grow up and meet my grand-kids. I don't want to be embarrassed about my size, if I don't get the job, I don't want to wonder - Is it because I am fat? I want to find me.


I'm glad you stopped by, and hope you find some connection or a bit of enjoyment in my musings of uncovering my true self; a lighter, happier, mother and wife. Leave a comment, support the sponsors, follow my blog, but most of all, be inspired and know you are not alone!

Day 43, Weigh In

257 lbs. Woo-hoo! That's 18 lbs. GONE!

Even though I haven't been on my A-game lately with working out and even straying off my eating plan a bit…I have still lost weight. I attribute this to making better choices, even when I splurge. I eat treats in moderation, and that's ok. I never wanted to be on a plan that made me starve or deprive myself. I just want to eat less junk and smaller portions of the good stuff. I do want to work out more than I have been…but over all I am proud of myself!

It's a yucky, nasty, cold and rainy here today. I think I'll throw in my dvd (Big Bang Theory – Season 1) and watch tv while I walk on the treadmill for a while before starting to dig out the Christmas decorations. Yes, I am aware that it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but I just love the holiday season this year! I have been Ms. Scrooge for the past few years, but this year, something is different…maybe it's my new attitude toward living and LOVING life! I can't wait to sit by a cozy fire and look at the beautiful tree! I have already been listening to Christmas music since November 1st! And on Thanksgiving, I will have turkey and be thankful just like every year, then I will go back into Christmas mode. lol… :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
