In 2008 I lost 40+ pounds. I have gained about 25 of it back. But I know that it can be done, and I know how to do it. Begin step one of my (again) journey...

Personal Information:
I'm a mom of two children (ages 8 and 10) and work full time as a high school teacher.

Oh - and I just started my masters degree (1/2012) in Equity, Education and Cultural Diversity. So I'm not at all busy...

I tried making almond milk, but was not as successful as I wished. How do you make it?
