Hi! My name is Miranda. I'm from a rural area in Texas just south of Abilene. I grew up in the country, so I'm absolutely in love with nature! That's one of my motivations to lose weight. I love outdoor activities, but I'm so out of shape that I tire out easily. I've been overweight most of my life. Obesity runs in my family as well as thyroid problems, so I'm battling genetics.
I have a degree in Biology and am currently back in school working on a Nursing degree, so I know fairly ...
Hi! My name is Miranda. I'm from a rural area in Texas just south of Abilene. I grew up in the country, so I'm absolutely in love with nature! That's one of my motivations to lose weight. I love outdoor activities, but I'm so out of shape that I tire out easily. I've been overweight most of my life. Obesity runs in my family as well as thyroid problems, so I'm battling genetics.
I have a degree in Biology and am currently back in school working on a Nursing degree, so I know fairly in-depth how all this works! That doesn't make it any easier, though. Most days I feel like I'm all information and very little action. I KNOW what I need to do, the problem is doing it.

Go ahead and take your best shot,
Let 'er rip, give it all you've got,
I'm laid out on the floor, but I've been here before,
I may stumble, yeah I might fall,
I'm Only human but aren't we all?
I might lose my way, but hear me when I say,
I will stand back up,
You'll know just the moment when I've had enough,
Sometimes I'm afraid, and I don't feel that tough,
But I'll stand back up ~ Sugarland

Miranda.....I have no clue what the Black Dutch German means, but Portugese is way south, more like the spanish people, DUTCH is another word for the Netherlands and the towards the northern part of Germany. Did you ever google it? I'm gonna ask my Dad when he calls this week, maybe he knows.... I'll let you know what he says.
Have fun with your tests, hope to meet you next time you come up to Raiderville
