Hi! This is my motivation right now! My first grandbaby. I can't believe I am abuela, and find it very surreal. I keep asking myself how I got to be at this stage of life. I hope to keep making progress and be healthy for many years of playing with the grandkids!

My name is Ann. I'm 50 years old. I live in Boise, Idaho with my husband of 27 years. We have four children: three boys and a girl. They are 25, 22, 18 and 17. Our daughter is the youngest. We also have one daughter-in-law, who we absolutely love. I like scrapbooking, tatting, crochet, knitting, counted cross-stitch, playing the piano, swimming, hiking, and camping.

I am 5 foot 1 inches tall. I never had a weight problem while I was growing up. I ate well and was active. After I got married I slowly sunk into bad habits and gained weight over the years.

Once I started this journey I learned that I had felt ugly and fat my entire life. I struggled to find out why. As I learned those reasons I resolved them.

I've gained greater confidence.
I want to do the things I need to do to succeed.
I want better health and stamina.
I want to enjoy my family for years to come.
I love myself and I know God loves me, too.
I know that even with all my frailties I am good enough for God.
I know that with HIS help I can do anything.

    Your "little belle" in your profile picture is pretty. She kind of reminds me of my mom's "Sunbonnet quilt." We loved that quilt to pieces until it was so worn out that it had to go. There was no greater treat at a sleepover than for my to let us use the sunbonnet quilt.

    Wow. When I looked the photo up full size on your photos, I realized that this was you. Was this in Honduras?
