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!

My food goals:
You'll never regret what you don't eat.
~ Track EVERYDAY...food and activity.  If not by a computer, write it down.
~ Stay within points range!!  Try not to use weekly extra points until I lose 50 lbs.
~ Eat fruit/vegetable at every meal.  More veggie snacks!
~ Choose LEAN meats and WHOLE grains.
~ Eat smaller portions. Eat to Live, not Live to Eat.

My life goals:
~ No more embarrassment - be proud of who I am and what I have done.
~ Be active with my kids/family more - they are growing WAY too fast and I have lost too much time with them already.
~ Buy clothes from the "regular" size racks - even if it's just at Target or Wal-mart.  I HATE shopping in the fat lady section!  The clothes are F-UGLY!!  ;)
~ Start hiking (outside, with trees, and hills!!)
~ Volunteer in spare time.
