I'm a Christian, a newlywed, and a mom to 2 fantastic boys. Shaun, 26, is a computer tech at a local store, and is my travel buddy and one of my very best friends. My youngest son, Evan (21) is HF Autistic and is one of the most gifted writers I've been privaliedged to read. He is an amazing young man with a wonderful sense of humor. He graduated from high school in May 2008, and is currently taking classes at the local community college and working with DVR to get a job.
5 years ago, I lost over 40 pounds, but have been regaining the weight for the past 3 1/2 years. I am currently within 10 pounds of my top weight of 196.
I would like to obtain my goal weight of between 150 and 155. Additionally, I would like to become physically fit and live an active and healthy lifeestyle once again.
My plan: I will stop drinking soda (especially Coke); I will do at least 15 minutes of stretching & toning exercises per day; I will again, begin walking on the treadmill, and riding my bike to and from work (2.2 miles); I will begin planning and preparing meals (again); I will begin eating 5 - 6 small meals per day again to help jump start my metabolism. I will take a walk with my coworker, Penny, everyday at 12:30 PM for 30 minutes.
I am originally from Illinois, but have lived in Southern NM for 13 years. My younger years were spent as a semi professional singer, and a runway model for a high-end fashion boutique. I have sung in our churches Living Christmas Tree for the past three years, and recently began warming up my voice for future vocal performances in church and our local Community Theater.
I love scrapbooking, crotcheting (doilies), counted cross-stitch, card-making (rubber stamping) and home improvement projects.
I am a severe asthmatic, but don't believe in allowing my asthma define me or rule my life. I recently began working with a specialist to improve my allergies and hopefully improve my asthma.
