Live Like The Butterfly
I am a 45 year young woman. I have five kids all grown and gone.
I have my little Miniture/Toy Chihuahua named Precious. I am here to lose weight, learn a better diet, get my diabeties under control and show my kids if I can do it then they can do it. At current, none of my children are over weight but the way they live their lives [just as I did mine] than I am sure they will be We all need to change in one way or another so I'm a doin my thing now. I am disabled and partly due to the diabeties and being over weight, so I pray that in doing something about it that I will be less disabled and more free to do things that I want to do. As of the start of this, I can't walk very far or stand up for more than 10 minutes at a time. I want to do better than that.
I believe others say that I am funny, fun to be around, jack of all trades and unemployed in all of them, I am a great cook [I guess we will see abot that when I change the way I cook and the food I eat, Ahh ha ha], I am great on compters, crafts, sewing, decorating, writing and more. With everything there is a flip side, so I can also get frustrated at times, get real upset with injustice, and suffer from depression. So balance out those things and I imagine you'll see the real me in there somewhere. I am Christian [nondenominational] and love it! I do love life and thanks to Him who saved me, I can improve on all things because of Him.
My goals are simple but not going to be so simple to do.
I need to lose 50 or more pounds.
I need to learn to eat better.
I need to become healthier and exercise the best that I can.
I need to get my diabeties II under control.
I have signed up:
__. record what I eat.
__. record my exercises.
__. record my blood sugars regularly.
__. get new shopping lists.
__. to start a work-out program.
__. to get a better handle on life before it's gone.
Hi my name is Roby, [pronounced Robbie], I go by Ms. Roby.
I live in Central Iowa in the USA.
I am 50 years old, a mother of 5 [all grown and gone now],
I am single again [my husband is now deceased since 2005].
My favorite things in this life have been spending time with my children.
Now it's watching my two grandchildren.
I love selling on-line and real life auctions.
I love to read the Bible and Study it.
I love my little Miniture/Toy Chihuahua named Precious. She's a realy doll. I adopted her from a foster home, who got her from a puppy mill. She was abused badly and it's taken years to let her know and live in love and return the love. I knit or crochet her little outfits for two reasons. One she gets cold really easy and two because you can not disipline her in any way shape or form in order to potty train her, so she wears diapers instead. She doesn't seem to mind at all and maybe in the future we can try and see what happens.

Thanks Roby - I need to look for the Biggest Loser cd. I have Jillian Michaels, Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus. I am addicted to the Wii Fit plus, Jillian is way to hard and fast for me - She does not give you enough time to change positions before she starts the next exercise, and Sports Resort - well its fun, but does not make me sweat.
If you need anything or are just down or Up and wanna chat - Feel free, I'm lurking around the boards during the day!!
Have a wonderful Mothers Day.

I saw in the Slowest Loser huddle that you needed support. Is there anything I can do to help you?
This small emoticon has such a powerful message. Stay focused on your goals, determined to reach them, and positive that you will.
Take every day one day at a time, sometimes even one hour at a time. Forgive yourself when you "slip" because we all do that. The trick is to forgive yourself and continue forward. Spark says to take two steps forward for every step back.
You CAN do this because you are a strong person.
