Before the diabetes made me lose 40 lbs
A looong time ago - size 14...where I wanna be again!
Nanny's little love - doin it all for you, baby! =)

I was born and raised in the little town of Eden, N.C. Just diagnosed with diabetes, can't eat all the yummy food I used to (around these parts, we were raised on biscuits & gravy, and sweeeeet tea) - losing weight should be a breeze, right? Wrong. 45 yr old mother of 2 grown sons and Nanny to one adorable baby girl, I'm ready to get this done, once and for all!
I've already met my 1st goal - to be under 250 lbs. The next one will be to be under 200. Hopefully by spring I'll be able to achieve that goal. My ultimate goal is to be at 150 lbs, which is a 12 for me.
Contrary to public opinion, my ideal size is 12, although I look pretty good in a size 14 too - I'm a big-boned girl, with hips and butt galore...and honey, when it's packed right, it's all good! lol
Every woman need not be a size 2 - or even an 8 to look good.
I plan to use interval training on the treadmill to achieve my goal. I did it last summer - lost 40 lbs, and I know I can do it again.
A little strength training to firm things up as I lose, and I'll be good to go!
My name is April, and I'm a Southern girl from the little town of Eden, N.C. I'm 45 yrs old, and the mother of 2 grown sons, Brandon - 24, and Jeremiah, who's 22.
I'm also Nanny to my 14 month old grand-daughter, Destiny. She's my pride and joy, and my main reason for being here. I'd love nothing more than to attend her wedding and the birth of her children someday.
