Hi Everybody! Have you ever just wanted to have fun and enjoy life? I got tired of saying, "I will do that when I'm thin." I resolved that, despite my obesity, I was going stop hiding out and start living. Making that decision got me back on plan with my weight loss journey.

I have a black belt in Yo-yo dieting, but this will bee the LAST time I lose the weight. This time, I'm doing it with kindness and compassion to myself.

I've decided to be a friend to myself. My very best friend. BFF!

The lake in the background photo of my spark page is actually Somes Sound on Acadia Island in Maine, a 7 mile long waterway that goes to the Atlantic Ocean, the only fjord in the Eastern Part of the US.

About an hour after I took this photo, we capsized our canoe and all of our belongings, including my purse with all our money, IDs, credit cards, cabin keys, truck keys etc sank into the dark water. Some boaters came by to help and a man with a snorkel dove off of his boat and by the grace of God managed to find my small purse, how, I'll never know. He saved our vacation, and taught me a lesson about gratitude ( and boating.)

This photo serves as a reminder to me that no matter how insurmountable the odds, that which has been lost CAN be found.

I will find myself again, and hope to meet up with you on the road.

My Goals:
My Goal is to reclaim my life, and take control of this weight once and for all.

I want to come to terms with the reasons I overeat, and make this is a life long journey toward being the healthiest person I can be.

I want to work with a personal trainer to help me develop a great weight training program.

My Program:
I am using the Medifast program, which is a meal replacement program, 5 of these a day with 1 lean/green meal.

I also am attending Weight Watchers for the weigh ins ( accountability anyone?) and the meetings, which I find very inspirational, and full of practical advice.

I am also working very hard to address the psychological component inherent in morbid obesity. I'm learning the "why" of it all.

I'll be working with a personal trainer soon, this is a goal really!

Personal Information:
I live in the beautiful rolling hills of Pennsylvania.

I speak fluent Spanish. Quesadillas anyone? NOT!!

Other Information:
I'm a TV holic, love Gordon Ramsey and Adult Swim! I'm also an avid Scooterist, and I love dogs!
