My 11th anniversary (or 77th if you count in dog years as we sometimes do.)





Last year at my sister-in-law's wedding. Is it just me or is it hard to find a flattering dress?



I have 14 pics in my gallery

Battle Begun!

So, I was feeling passe about this whole thing during the holidays, and then on Christmas morning, my 8 year old daughter (who is absolutely tiny) gave me the best gift ever. She had made a paper doll on a website (of a skinny woman in a great dress) and she glued it to a piece of paper and wrote these words on it: "You are MY hero." Well, lets just say it reduced me to tears. Then last night, while watching the season premiere of the Biggest Loser, she asked me, "How do you get on the ...
So, I was feeling passe about this whole thing during the holidays, and then on Christmas morning, my 8 year old daughter (who is absolutely tiny) gave me the best gift ever. She had made a paper doll on a website (of a skinny woman in a great dress) and she glued it to a piece of paper and wrote these words on it: "You are MY hero." Well, lets just say it reduced me to tears. Then last night, while watching the season premiere of the Biggest Loser, she asked me, "How do you get on the show?" I explained to her all I knew about it and she said, "apply. We can go live with Grammy and Grampy while you are there, we could go to our old school, it would be okay to leave our friends for a little while. 'Cause I know you could win." Holy Cow! You don't realize how much they understand until they just lay it out there for you. I explained to her the reasons I've not tried to get on the show...and I explained to her that I am trying really hard to get it done on my own. She told me she believed in me, and that she was proud of me. So, I really have to do this now. I can no longer hide from myself, because I have two kids who are counting on my to save my life. I am also going to revamp my goals and actually put some structure and time limits to them, no more vague generalities. I'm just going to decide to DO it every day!

I am logging my food intake.

Watch my fat & calories, and try to stay withing the recommended range.

I am cutting down on T.V. time.

My husband and I plan on making our family more active on the weekends, with family walks and taking the dog to the dog park.

Personal Information:
I grew up in a little town called Coloma, MI. I am an only child of parents with many siblings. I've been married for 11 years, I have an 8 year old and a 10 year old. I am a true child of the 70's and 80's because I am addicted to t.v. I've been asthmatic my entire life, which is one of the reasons that fitness hasn't been my top priority. When I was a kid, even into my teen years the meds they had were not very good at prevention, but at treatment, so it was easier to sit on the sidelines then suffer and be fearful of not being able to breathe.

Other Information:
I am and avid reader. That's part of my problem. I am an asthmatic and as a young person I was limited in my physical activity, so I spent all my time with my nose in a book, inside. I couldn't run as much as the other kids, and then in P.E. class I was the outcast, because I wasn't coordinated and if I ran more than a few minutes I couldn't breathe, so I'm relearning that being active is a good thing.

So, I'm trying to learn to balance my reading and lessen my T.V. addiction.

Welcome to SP & the SDA team! It's so neat to have you on board. Though there's so many folks here at SP, working hard and being fantastic Losers, I think there must be something unique bout having grown up with "don't you know that your body is a temple?" -- plus an incredible health emphasis and message, then not living up to it. Never settle for unhealthy -- it's never too late to get healthy and now we're here to do it!
