Emma, our Princess! (just one of our clan) :o)
When I was in my early 20s, I ballooned to over 200 lbs. on my 5'4" frame. After having trouble with both my knees(among other health problems), which I thought had EVERYTHING to do with genetics and NOTHING to do with my weight I decided it was time for change. I was a young mother with no energy, not heading in the direction I should have been, for myself or my son.
Fast forward a decade; it took some time, but within 2 years of that decision I had lost 85 lbs. I felt great! It took perseverance, but I had finally shown myself what health was. I was doing well with my career, I felt great, and there was NO WAY I was ever going to let myself gain the weight back.......
So here I am, 2 years after reaching my goal, with another 35 lbs. gained that I need to lose, after some pretty big life changes. This time around, I want to focus on a healthy lifestyle. The whole ball of wax. My downfall last time was focusing primarily on my weight, leaving my physical fitness and health behind. Not anymore! Bad habits, begone! Happy 2012 everyone, make this YOUR year too!! :o)
To be healthy, happy, strong & fit, all at the same time, lol!! Long overdue...
I walk 4-6 times a week, and strength train every other day so far. I am sure this will change as I continue...
My name is Angie, and I am from Alberta, Canada.
I am a lover of music and all creatures, great and small......my heart will always belong to ferrets, however; we have 7 of them!

I hear you, Judy....our 2 oldest are boys, Bruce is the bald one, and he's 6. Monty is 5, and has an insulinoma which we give him pills twice daily for. We love them as if they are our children, lol. Monty's sister Daisy passed away from cancer in April, which was very hard. It makes it harder when you love them sooo much, but so worthwhile. Anyway, I wish you a wonderful day, as I am off for my walk now. Talk soon!

We have 2 ferrets currently - both boys & both getting older and more infirm. One of them poops anywhere & everywhere he wants! Cleanup is no fun right now, but we love him so much. The most ferrets we've ever had at one time is 3.
