My hooding and graduation in May 2007. What I look like now...notice the not so happy face :(





I'm holding Tess, one of our percheron mares, and the one that I ride.





What I looked like 20 years ago (and my goal to look and feel like again!)



I have 17 pics in my gallery

I am a mother to 5 boys. I work full time as a teacher. I have chronic kidney disease, having kidney failure was enough of a scare that I need to do something, and doing it alone is not an option.

--have a healthier fitness lifestyle

--enjoy and appreciate what I have, not moan about what I don't have

My Program:
I joined Curves and went regularly during the school year but find it hard to do during the summer. I started riding horses again (after 15 years of not). I'm buying more fresh fruits and vegetables. I joined LA Weightloss for my support...no lites or supplements just the accountability.

Personal Information:
I live in SE Ohio (Morgan County) but I'm originally from Syracuse NY. I lost a wonderful husband, Randy, who loved me just the way I was, so that makes changes difficult.


Other Information:
my favorite movie by far is West Side Story

and I spend all of my time doing something for my kids or my mother...

I am terrible at changing my life style without help, hubby thinks I'm fine just the way I am so I must seek support from alternate sources. In this case I started going to Physician's Weight Loss Center (PWLC) for support, weight watchers just didn't do it for me. I know it's a little expensive, but I really can't complain about the results - 10 pounds in 2 weeks! I just extend what I eat to make meals for the family (the other 5) and it isn't so bad. I'm happy if I can stay at 1200 or below. Hope this helps!

Hey, I was browsing trackers and looked at yours because yesterday you ate as many calories as i SHOULD eat. a couple of questions, what is PWLC or whatever, is it some diet food? Also, is that really all you ate yesterday? You are amazing. and i noticed the 5 cookies, I'm so glad I'm not the only who indulges occasionally!

Hi!
Thanks so for the compliments, I appreciate them.
Actually I graduated with my Bachelors in 1986 and went back to school just recently to get my Master's, next step is the PhD!
Good luck in your endeavors, may they be small strides toward your goals.
Norvie
