Hi! I'm Helen.

I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different strengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

I am attempting to implement various things in my weight-loss journey: the Gabriel Method (especially his visualizations on my ipod), nutritarian eating (Dr. Fuhrman's eating plan), EFT, bilateral stimulation, brainwave music, daily affirmations, a bullet journal, mood charting, Whole Woman Yoga, riding the exercise bike (while reading a book), doing the Leslie Sansone walk at home videos, an online bootcamp membership, implementing healthy routines and getting rid of bad habits, Vimala handwriting/character building and flylady routines.

I am a Christian.

    I saw an old post of you writing about the difficulty finding varied diet. I am new to vegan cooking and eating. I hope things are better now for you. I have been eating salads (of course), all kinds of vegetables and fruits, multi-grain bread, spaghetti with marinara sauce, veggie burgers veggie bean burgers, veggie chili. Next week I think I'll have taco's and/or burritos, homemade veggie bean burgers with tomatoes, onion, pickles, lettuce, and multi-grain bread. I have been looking at a lot of recipes on the internet. It is going to take some planning but I'm sure after a few weeks it will get easier.

    emoticon If you find one that is active and you love let me know. I like the support to eat the E2L way but there is not much chat there. Are you still doing a BLC challenge?
    I heard that the new team is a combo and is the Golden Phoenix team. I am going to give it my best shot this challenge on Grey and am, hoping for 15 pounds loss and btw I think that is fantastic that you did that in the fall!
    I will miss you too and so many from the Turquoise team. Seems so weird to not be part of it. And it seems so strange that the Turquoise team is not here. I do love the Grey wolves as I think I don't have enough time to be part of too many teams though and they have quite a few things right on that team to get me motivated.
    All the best! Yes lets keep in touch.

    Welcome to the Married Life Team!

    I just read the comment below from Jibbie. Oh my goodness. That person she refers to said such an amazingly ignorant thing! How unbelievable!

    The most ignorant thing a man ever said to me was "Why didn't you quit having children after the first two, since all five of your children look alike?" emoticon I told him "Yes, they are a matched set, but they are nothing alike in personality."
