I'm a 50 year old woman trying to lose weight so I can get off all the medications I'm on. I'm currently going to college to become a medical assistant. I used to be an LPN, but I had a spinal cord injury that stopped that career path. I live alone and don't have a very good support system. My family lives 200 miles away and my oldest son lives over 50 miles away. My youngest lives very near me, but he's already told me he's tired of hearing me talk about how I'm trying to lose weight and what I'm doing. So I'm just going to do it on my own and get it done!

My Goals:
I'm hoping to lose 100 pounds before I graduate from college in May of 2014.

My Program:
I am tracking my food, drinking much more water than I ever have in my life and I'm trying to walk at least every other day. I have revamped my refrigerator and pantry and have mostly healthy foods.

Personal Information:
My name is Deb and I live in Goshen, IN. I have 2 sons that I am very proud of. I'm disabled due to a spinal cord injury, but thank goodness I can still walk, even if it's not a normal walk. I live alone and don't have any social life, but I think that is mostly due to how I view myself and lack of funds. Hopefully, losing the weight can actually take care of both of those problems.

Other Information:
I found this quote and I don't know who to give the credit to, but it has become my favorite quote.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
