Hello everyone!! I am a 28 year old Christian mother of 3 children (ages 10, 6 and 4). My husband Larry is a motivator and sometimes a hindrance :) to my weight loss. He is there for every triumph and failure. I have a fierce love for God and a calling in Children's Ministry. I have been struggling with my weight for about the last 15 years or so. I am extremely self-conscious so posting pics/videos or anything that shows my flaws will be really difficult. I have motivation now but I know it won't last. I read in another weight loss blog that you need determination and a lot of it to make it through losing weight.

    I have lived in Petoskey, Boyne, & Charlevoix. Worked at NMH 8 years, heard McLauren bought it.
    Been in Mesa AZ for the last 20. My Dad just died and he is why we moved here.
    We are thinking of moving back cuz there is no more reason to stay here. Sure have enjoyed this sunshine.
    We have a daughter and grandson in Cx.
    Is MI economy coming back?

    Ah, the inline skating... isn't it tough?! It does get easier, I promise. I hated the skating part at first, and then as I progressed, it was one of the "easier" exercises ;) Way to go!
