Determination

I used to take really good care of myself. I went to the gym ALOT in high school. When I was 19 I gave birth to my first child. She was born with a large hole in her heart. She's had corrective surgeries, but suffered a stroke in the process. All of the intensity of the situation hit me hard, and I've been in and out of depression for years. My weight went from 125 to 228, and I've been between 210-230 for so long! Being a single mom to a child with a brain injury is tough...but there have been ...

My weight went from 125 to 228, and I've been between 210-230 for so long! Being a single mom to a child with a brain injury is tough...but there have been SO many blessings from the journey! I also have a son who is incredibly strong and stable. Both of them are such an inspiration to me. Being a mom to two awesome kids is wonderful...no words can describe it. Now that they're older and more independent I find myself not knowing what to do with myself. I figure I have more time to focus on my health. I draw inspiration from my daughter's strength, and from wanting to be better for them and myself. Now its time to get back on track...set my face forward and not look back.

My Goals:
My main goal is to get myself and my family healthy the right way. I'd like to eventually run with my daughter in the Princess marathon at Disney World.

My Program:
I'm pretty new to this site, but already I've learned the feeling of eating right vs empty calories. I track my food everyday and plan ahead now when I know I'll have a busy day. I try to stay involved in monthly challenges...it really helps me stay motivated and I appreciate the accountability.

Personal Information:
I'm from Myrtle Beach, SC. Having a beach to walk on is nice. I LOVE being outside. If I wasnt a massage therapist I would probably have an "outside" job. I'm 41 yrs old, but I feel like I'm 23(most of the time). I'm a mom to 2 amazing kids, and I think being a mom is the best, most wonderful thing I'll ever do.

Other Information:
I love going to the movies, reading, and wonderful dinners...you know, all the stuff that requires sitting around and very little movement hahaha. Get togethers with family and friends are always on my list of fun things to do too.
