I'm changing my background just for my birthday. I'm 54 years old today. I feel the healthiest I ever have in my life!

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at ...
I'm changing my background just for my birthday. I'm 54 years old today. I feel the healthiest I ever have in my life!

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 174. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other people, too. I feel for them, and want them to know that with the right kind of tools (mostly mental) you can lose the weight for the last time.

I'm 53, divorced and have 3 boys: 27, 22 & 16.

Please remember to be THANKFUL for those who have GIVEN, those who GAVE all & for those who CONTINUE to GIVE in order to keep our country safe, sound & free!!! Your FREEDOM is the MOST expensive gift you've ever been given & those who have given it to you have done so without expecting anything in return!!! Be Thankful for the SOLDIER & for the sacrifices they choose to so selflessly make for the love of our country & for the love of being an AMERICAN!!! They are true heroes & deserve the upmost of respect, today, tomorrow & everyday!!! For the soldier, I am eternally grateful!!!
