That's me on the right - pretty much at goal weight, and just needing to continue to tone up.

"Build the habits and the results will follow!" ~Jonathan Roche

This October, only two months from now, I'll be turning the big 5-0. I struggled with my weight my entire life, losing and regaining more pounds than I care to think about. But thanks to SP and babysteps, I'm happy to say, I weigh about 45 pounds less than I did on the day I got married. And, because of a few healthy habits, I've been losing and/or maintaining for almost five years now! That's huge!!

My Goals:
I just want to feel healthy and confident. My family history is not good, and I like to avoid the doctor as much as possible. I've been heavy and self-conscious my whole life. But no more!

My Program:
Lifestyle Changes:

-Portion control

-Some form of exercise most days. (Never skip 2 days in a row.)

Personal Information:
I live in the middle of nowhere, in Central Illinois.

Other Information:
I teach junior high special education. It's quite a challenge and a big source of fuel for my emotional eating. However, it's incredibly rewarding, and the vacations aren't bad!!!
