I have been struggling with my weight in an epic battle for the last 3 years. Although my weight gain began around 2003 when I was 33 years old. I would say that the revelation of being severely addicted to food happened about 2 or 3 years ago.

I am so blessed to have wonderful (grown) children and a beautiful granddaughter. But I suffer very badly from high anxiety. I currently don't quite have the resources to reach out for professional help and I am uninsured right now and so don't have the money to go for a physical. I am planning on doing so soon after the new year begins.


Member Since: 11/24/2012

My Goals:
I want to feel better. I have back pain and I am always bloated and swollen. I also suffer from collapsed arches and at times have to wear a brace at night which really impedes my sleep. I think as a woman I'd love to look better than I do but my true goals are to feel better and have balance in my life.


My Program:
That is why I am here. For starters I'm going to try my hardest to eat 3 meals a day which consist of high fiber, high protein and try to be careful about salt and processed sugar and flour products. I also walk approximately 40 mins a day while pushing a stroller with a 3 & 2 yr old in it. (I'm a nanny)



Personal Information:
I am from Central NJ and the mother of three awesome grown children and grandma to the most beautiful granddaughter ever!


Other Information:
I love the outdoors, I love the woods and mountains and LOVE the shore. I also love history, colonial and revolutionary American history being my favorite and "the push west" being a close second

    Hello! I hope your journey is going well thus far. If you ever need a little push, I'm only a SparkMail away! :)

    I also have some anxiety issues. I don't know exactly what would be available in your area, but here we have a number of community health centers. A major one is run by Catholic Community Services. You could likely Google for it and perhaps find a place that can get you a diagnosis, and even inexpensive medication, if needed. I hope to get off my meds soon, but for now, they're a lifesaver. :)

    You've got some great motivation, so I don't even need to wish you good luck! Instead, I'll wish you Good Journey. :)

    Hi! How's it going so far this week? Today was a rough day at work and I really wanted to "chow down" when I got home - but I didn't, I went for a walk instead. It definitely helped.

    How are you doing?
