My journey on weight-loss didn't happen to me until I was 30 in 2007! I am now 37. In 2007 I had given birth to my second daughter, Emma (7 years old). My oldest daughter Kathleen is 19 and a college student! Yes I know big age gap, but God knew what he was doing, I would have gone crazy when Kat went off to college without Emma!

My Goals:
Well my goal is to stay focused on getting healthy. I tended before to stop everything when I lost 10-15 lbs. Then just to gain it all back and maybe a little more. So my main goal is to stay focused and on track.

My Program:
Eat healthy, limit soda, limit sugar, add more water!!! Keep moving, keep walking, keep stretching, keep running!

Personal Information:
My name is Heather. I am a born again Christian! I am married to my high school sweetheart, Joe. Like I said before I have 2 awesome girls!! In 2012 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. It slowed me down but not much. I was an avid runner before. I have run 11 races and was getting ready to start training for a half when I was diagnosed. I am on all kinds of medicine which I hate and tried to do clean eating no meds. But I had the worst flare up I had ever had about 3 months into my change. I am back on meds and healthy eating and a healthy workout for me and my RA! I still run just not as hardcore as I had. RA does not define me!!! I refuse to let it change me completely. I work at a retirement home and love it. I am a part time cook. I am also a part time resident associate. Which helps the elderly in assisting them with daily living. We have 35 residents. Its fun and challenging!

Other Information:
"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming"

    Hi, thanks for replying to my post, I have been on all the same meds as u except the cimiza, the revolving door right, I really cant stand when I have to resort to getting a shot of prednisone try to avoid that at all costs ugggh though somehow it does help with the pain but I intensely dislike the side effects! Take care, Erica
