My Goals:
I would really love to drop 70 pounds, but it feels like I have been striving for it so long it''s hard not to lose hope, and lose my focus. So my most immediate goal is to get under 200, my second short term goal is to get back to where I was before back surgery two years ago, which was 175. Then I wil be close enough to see 145 on the horizon:)

My Program:
Presently trying to get severe sleep apnea under control in hopes that it will aid in weight loss, with hopes that weight loss will in turn aid in my sleep apnea. Getting 8 hours of sleep seems impossible right now, and I have become a somnambulist. Trying not to eat simply to regain energy is a big challenge for me right now.

Personal Information:
I am a homeschooling mother of three, and wife to the love of my life. I believe my weight control became a real issue after I fell during my second pregnancy and fractured two vertebrae in my lower back. It has been difficult to be physically active as I should be, and it doesn''t help that most of my hobbies require sitting;-)

Other Information:
I love photography, digital art and desktop publishing, music and promotion (I''m married to a musician, so yeah;-) ) I also love scrapbooking, sushi, sewing, reading, sushi, movies, homemade chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven, sushi, and french roast expresso! Did I mention sushi?

I too suffer from sleep apnea. Maybe not as serious as some but still felt tired all the time. Finally decided to do a sleep test. Don't ask what I scored, I have no idea, But the did put me on a CPAP machine, it has made a world of difference. I never leave home without it, LOL. No matter what I look like with a mask over my face. It saves the family from me being cranky all the time. LOL

Hahaha, I had changed the colors but didn't save. They keep hiding the save buttons in the bottom right corners, just the place I forget to look;-)
