I'm a theology student serving as an Assistant Minister in a church this year while I finish school. I live in beautiful Colorado with my thirteen-year-old son and two cats. I am a single mom on top of working and going to school, so taking good care of myself is both a challenge and a necessity. I'm also recovering from a badly broken ankle (and then ankle surgery) in October 2015.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get down to about 135 pounds, which is about a 60 pound loss from my starting weight, and then assess whether I should lose a bit more or not. My mini-goals are in my signature: I'll celebrate each time the tens digit on the scale changes!

My Program:
I'm doing Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga, following a gluten-free vegetarian diet, and generally trying to establish and maintain healthy habits related to food, activity level, water, and sleep.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Thank you for the spark goodie and kind words regarding my job loss. I am trying to keep the faith! On a good note, I am not letting the stress impact my eating; I'm fighting hard to keep going.
Thanks again, I really appreciate you stopping by! emoticon emoticon
