I'm 30 years old and teach elementary school in Virginia. I want to be a positive and healthy role model for my students. But above all I want to learn how to live a fit, healthy, and happy life.

I have been overweight most of my life, since about 7th or 8th grade. Between my high school graduation in 2001 and now, I gained about 40 pounds, in addition to the 30ish that already put me overweight. Many things held me back previously from seriously pursuing weight loss but I am at a place now where I'm ready to do it for good. I am SO done!

I am DONE...
...wearing plain, drab clothes because they fit.
...not being able to cross my legs.
...never wearing heels.
...hurting all over.
...trying to hide in pictures.
...being afraid of seeing myself naked.
...not wanting to be literally swept off my feet.
...sweating places people shouldn't sweat.
...with ugly underwear.

I cook on a regular basis for my whole family and I would like to build a recipe library that is easy, healthy, and delicious.
