Hello, I'm Jen and I'm a 38 yr old divorced mother of 4 kiddos, aged 18, 15 and 6 yr old twins. I live in Kansas. I have been searching for ways to communicate with people who have similar goals. I am working daily to develop and maintain a healthier lifestyle for myself and my children.

I have topped out at 318 pounds about 8 yrs ago and gradually lost about 100 pounds of it over the first 5 yrs. I have been "stuck" around 215 for about 3 yrs. At my last weight check at the Dr. I was 214,

I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and a host of other "sideline" diagnosis. It limits my ability to do the running and seriously strenuous stuff so I am hoping to find workable routines here.

I began this journey several years ago and tried another time before to pick it up. I am tired of giving up on myself and holding eternal hope and positive affirmations for everyone else. It's time to re-do myself and my life.

Thank you Lord.

My Goals:
My goal is to get healthy for my self and my children. It is important to me that they see, even through physical limitations, that I am trying to get there, one day at a time.

My Program:
I am watching caloric intake, trying to limit to 1600 since I am not overly active. I am working with resistance bands and swimming at least if possible. I am comitted to reviewing and trying new recipes that make eating right easier and have also joined the "Baby Steps Challenge"

Personal Information:
I'm from small town America. My home town in Kansas has about 4,000 people in it. We moved here about 6 years ago. We attend Church and volunteer as often as possible. My kids, all 4, are involved in soccer.

Other Information:
I just began reading a new book titled in the series titled A Woman after God's Own Heart. The book PUTTING ON A GENTLE & QUIET SPIRIT is by Elizabeth George and it's a study of 1 Peter.

I look forward to growing each day through the study.
