My name is Teresa, I'm sort of married to David (we got married in 84, divorced in 93 and we've been back together since 1997 without the paperwork) lol. I've got 2 grown children, a son-in-law and a 6 year old grandson. I've been a member of Sparkpeople off and on since 2006.

In August of 2013 I turned 50 years old. The scale in the corner of the bathroom had been glaring at me for over a year and when I finally stepped on it, it laughed and laughed. I was at my highest weight ever. 207 lbs on a 5' body is not good. I made a decision that day to change. I'm a work in progress, but I've lost 30 lbs so far.

Let me back up a minute, in 2009 I opened a yarn shop. It was so much fun, I met a ton of great people, started dying my own line of yarn. But it was a lot of hard work, 6-7 days a week, 10 hour days, missing out on so much of my family and friends. I made a huge decision to shut down the business and on March 20, 2014 I closed the doors. A huge weight and relief has been lifted off my shoulders. Before you panic, I haven't given up my love of knitting, just taking a short break.

I spend probably too much time on facebook. If you have a facebook account, look me up
