I am a big city turned small town country mother. I am married to my best friend in the world who helps me stay sane and stand my ground in this world. We have four wonderful children who are the center of our world,they are Country, Claude, and Courtney,and Chloe. I love to hang out on the net..in this small town there is not much else to do. I am also into computer repair. I love spending time helping my husband repair cars he has taught me so much about it ..and the greasier the better. I love to four wheel drive and would rather be in the mountains on an ATV or in a truck with my family than in any mall or movie theater anywere. I believe life is too short to not get as dirty and have as much fun as you can while your doin it. I feel most alive when surrounded by nature and love to spend time with my family out in it. i aslo have a crazy green thumb and enjoy growing things to my hearts content.

The last few years i have been feeling stuck both emotionally and physically and instead of getting out and getting fit after having four kids i continued to wall myself in and literally eat my emotions. after gaining at least 30lbs each kid i would yoyo but ended up gaining it back due to my low self esteem. it just snowballed and before i knew it in the 11years i have been married i went from 165lbs to 258lbs.

well this past fall my kids started playing sports and i felt sad i was not able to practice with them as much as i should be able to. heck my near 50 year old husband can work longer than i can. i have decided it is time for a change. Hoping this time i can make it stick. My first goal is 50lbs by october and ultimatly down to at least my old weight or better by April next year.

So determined to be a healthier me for me and for my family.
