Well let's see. I'm a 37 year old mother of one. My daughter is a teenager and means more to me than anything on Earth. I struggle with emotional issues attached to my unhealthy relationship to food. I've always hated food. Not the taste or anything like that, matter of fact I LOVE to cook for others. But I don't like the actual action of eating. I think this is because it has some not so happy memories attached to it. So I speed eat. I can finish an entire steak, salad, veggies and potato in about 15 to 25 minutes. A burger? 10 minutes or less! And that's not an exaggeration unfortunately. Which leads to over-eating. When I cook I like to cook healthy foods. No canned or frozed or boxed stuff. I admit I don't eat healthy all the time though. I wish I did and I'm working on that but in my current situation it's very difficult. I view food almost as a punishing thing. If I can change that and increase my exercise then I think I'll make it!

My Program:
I'm working on myself. I'm retraining myself to slow down when I eat. I'm amazed at how full I get when I do this and on such a small amount of food! I'm increasing my exercise. I love to walk on the treadmill. I also enjoy lifting weights.



Personal Information:
I live in Austin Texas with my wife and daughter. I'm originally from a podunk town called Perryton Texas.

What I do: I'm a Therapist on hiatus. I'm hoping to go back to school so that I can teach abnormal psychology classes at a local community college someday.

I'm a nerd and book geek! I'm into writing and photography. I'm a water spirit so anything that's by/on the water and I'm there! I love to play cards and board games.

My favorite thing to do is spend time with my daughter. She's 16. She plays the cello like an angel, plays guitar, and sings (takes after her mom!). She's artistic, intelligent and just wonderful. Not that I'm proud or anything...

My favorite Quotes:

What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

The soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears.
-Native American proverb

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset...
-Blackfoot

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. “ ~ William James

    What a lovely thing it is
    To have a loyal friend
    emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Someone who understands us
    On whom we can depend
    A friend who sees and knows our faults
    And likes us anyway
    And never seems to take offence
    At anything we say
    emoticon emoticon emoticon
    For friendship is a precious gift
    And we should always treasure
    The ones who share our grief, our joy
    Our heartache and our pleasure
    emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I treasure you
    Not just at Christmas
    But all the year through
    Have a really good holiday season
    My really good friend

    2010 Contract
    After serious & cautious consideration... your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2010

    It was a very hard decision to make... So try not to screw it up!!!

    My Wish for You in 2010

    May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts.

    May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills.

    May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!

    May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy

    May the problems you had, forget your home address!

    In simple words ............

    May 2010 be the best year of your life!!!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

    Love is a rain of diamonds in the mind
    the fruit of the soul sliced in two
    a dark spring loosed at the lips of light
    under-earth waters unlocked from their lurking
    to sparkle in a crevice parted by the sun
    a temple not of stone but cloud
    beyond the roar of the heart and all violence
    blue permanence
    In Autumn

    -May Swenson

    When you're dreaming with a broken heart
    Waking up is the hardest part.
