I'm pretty excited about my life. Lately I've been realizing that as good as things are, they could be so much better if I had my lifelong struggle with weight under control and could enjoy better health. About all that's keeping me from it is making the effort.

I'm a mom of four--two already adults on their own and two teenagers still living at home. I'm owned by two dogs, rescued mutts who try their best to take care of me. I love reading just about anything. I write poetry. I draw a little. I love to cook big happy meals with a lot of people around laughing and enjoying each other, listening to good music.

I'm such a techno geek. My first profession was in the computer/electronics field but now I'm working on becoming what I've always wanted to be when I grow up--a professional counselor. I'm a full-time graduate student and hope to be done by next summer.

Being a single parent is never easy and I've pushed hard to accomplish things for myself as well as raise decent, happy kids. I've had incredible support along the way and I'm grateful for every day. If I'm blessed with even one more hour I want to make it the best possible and not waste a minute of it. Sure there are challenges but I believe in learning from them and moving on. The weight thing is one I've not wanted to tackle but I'm ready now.
