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!

The Power of Positive Pictures

Simple things that I am thankful for.

My faithful walking partners!
(I don't think I sound quite so crazy while I'm talking to myself when they are with me! lol...) 
...and what a beautiful trail I get to walk on!  I LOVE IT!


I am thankful for this yummy food!
This is a Chicken Parmesan Bake and "fancy" salad I made the other night for supper.


I love AUTUMN!  
Fall is my favorite time of the year.
I feel more motivated in the fall than I do in the spring!
(Although this is a stock photo - it is very similar to what I see outside my window.
I am thankful I live in such a beautiful setting.)
