Just a little about me ... I'm a 40 year old single mother of 2 who has been putting the needs of everyone else before my own; and somewhere along the way ... I lost myself. Originally from NY, I moved to MD about 3 years ago which is where it all began.

One day I woke up wondering how I let things get this out of control? Moving from the city to the suburbs was what I thought was best for my family and peace of mind; however, I didn't realize that the slow pace (and needing a car) would have such a drastic effect on me, my social life and my enthusiasm. So I supposed the best way to describe myself at the present moment is apprehensive. Hoping to change that in the very near future.

So that being said, I need this!! I need some type of support system to help me stay motivated because it's so hard. Especially when you know all of the right things to do; yet you don't do them whether out of laziness or just being afraid of change.

I need to pray more I know while asking for guidance, strength and direction, but because I want instant results .... I never stick to it.

This is where SP comes into play. I joined the Maryland team amongst others, hoping to go on walks, lunches and social gatherings together ... hopefully that will come to pass.

So I'm looking forward to embarking on this journey with all of you. I welcome any advise that anyone would like to offer as constructive criticism is accepted graciously. Thanks for the support and thank you all in advance for your time, inspiration and words of wisdom as we all conquer this weight 1 pound at a time.

    Hey Nulyfenume - thanks for the add and best of luck with your journey. I too moved to a quiet place and wasn't watchful about the downside - it just crept up! But there's so much to appreciate, especially if you have little ones. Lovely pics on your site - hope the overhaul went well! emoticon emoticon
