Hi! I'm a 5th grade teacher and single mom to a great 16 yr old. I've been heavy since my first marriage in the 80's. I've tried most diets but end up gaining back all I've lost and more. My bad habits are killing me. More importantly they're killing my son who, for the first time, is heavier than me. I'm hoping good habits will rub off as much as the bad habits have.

My Goals:
I'd ultimately like to lose about 158 lbs. First I'm shooting for getting down to 290 lbs by the end of school. I'm not sure that's a realistic goals since I had a set back for a few weeks, but I'm leaving it as a goal. We'll see what I can do.

My Program:
I'm working on portion control and eating healthier food. Also, I'm working on adding exercise to my day.

Personal Information:
I'm in the boring part of CA. That's right, the San Joaquin Valley. We are starting to get 90 degree days already, making exercise outdoors tough to manage.

Other Information:
I love going to the movies. We go at least once a week. I like everything but scary movies. I'm reading the book Boundaries right now. Great book! Very eye opening. Other than that it's church, CR, work, and raising a teenager. Life is good. Sweet brother, Gordon, give Jesus a hug for me. I love you, see you soon.(5/5/12)

I read your blogs and it looks like we two are in a similar position--just getting real (again) about what we have done to ourselves weight-wise. I think an important and critical part of success in weight-loss is to track everything you put in your mouth. Your goals are do-able, but they do take a bit of obsession. Keep on Sparking!
