I am a 34 year old mother of 2 (ages 14 & 16). My hubby & I have been together for 17 years, & I am currently in a doctoral program for clinical psychology. Recently, I achieved my goal of securing an Air Force Health Services scholarship & was commissioned this year as a 2nd Lt in the USAF!

I have been a member of SP since 12/29/08. I'm learning to make my health a higher priority. Obesity doesn't mesh with my worldviews. I'm so ready to be healthy & look forward to a LONG life, & it is important for me to set a good example for my children. I am comfortable with & love myself at any weight; I just want to FINALLY be healthy.....& I want to have gobs of energy, so that I'm not one of those people looking for excuses to take the elevator instead of the stairs!
