I have been battling the weight thing all of my life and now I am ready to begin a new life!

Member Since: 8/11/2013

Fitness Minutes: 255

My Goals:
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes recently and I hope to change my way of eating to control my blood sugars. I want to lose weight and become more active as right now I classify myself as a slug!

My Program:
Tracking everything that enters my mouth, tracking fitness minutes, cooking more at home and eating out only one night a week, and healthy foods rather than just fast food.

Personal Information:
I am from Spring Grove, PA where I have lived all of my life. I am a RN at a local hospital where I work in the ortho/neuro/trauma unit. I work 12 Hour shifts, and nights at that, which makes life difficult in general. I have 3 kids, my daughter is 25 and works as a RN on the same floor that I work on, my son is 21 and I also have a 13 year old who will be doing spark teens!

Other Information:
Ultimately, I want to be able to go on vacations and not just sit in the house. I have a 2004 Ford Mustang that I love but I am literally too fat to fit behind the wheel to even drive it, so it is collecting dust in my garage. I love horror movies but usually wait for them to come out on Netflix because I am too fat to fit I the seats. I would love to fly to England one day because I think it is beautiful in pictures. I love love love to swim but I have psoriasis which makes people think I am some mutant so I do go anywhere near a pool or beach where people think I may contaminate the water. I hope to be able to afford my own pool by next summer! 😄
