I'm 35 years old. I have 3 children: 2 sons in middle school and a little girl whom I'm home-schooling for personal reasons. She'll be in 1st grade this Fall in an online program. I'm happily married to a wonderful man (abiggidy) who is also eating healthy and getting fit. I've lost over 100 lbs so far and have about 40+ more lbs to go and then want to maintain while still getting rid of body fat and gaining muscle. In this journey to wellness, I've overcome depression/bipolar that I've had since I was 8 yrs old! I've been med-free since Spring 2013 and only take natural supplements!! I've never been happier or felt more alive! It is absolutely true that what you eat affects how you feel!!! The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!!! Through Him, I can do this! Baby steps all the way works for me! Fit 4 Jesus, Fit 4 Life!!!! Sometimes, it's okay to gain WEIGHT (wellness, encouragement, inspiration, guidance and helpful thoughts).

    I had to look up Oneida County. Your hometown is about 200 miles North of mine. I was close to the Dells!
    Have an awesome Sunday! I'm waiting for the sun to come out & warm things up so I can go on a nature trail.

    My daughter made the donuts. They are a little on the heavy side...kind of cake-y. She said she won't be trying that again :-)

    Hi...Each Roast was 8-9 lbs...

    Here's the recipe if you are interested...Yes, you can freeze the pulled pork...I just like it canned to save on freezer space and it lasts longer than in the freezer.

    I smoke the roasts (pork shoulder or pork butts) with apple wood for 4-5 hours...then put them in a huge roaster and add water, about 2 quarts. Then cook it in the oven for another 3-4 hours on 325F. When the roasts are done, take out of the oven and let cool. Shred and add to pint or quart jars...Pressure can at 10 lbs pressure, pints 70 mins and quarts 90 mins.

    I add the BBQ sauce when reheating for dinner as some like it plain !
