It's me, Melissa, formerly JAXMOMMY, reinvented as PRNCSCUP1-2FULL! 2016 proved to be a rough year for me without having too many tragedies involved! Still, I struggled with my weight.

This year I am giving it my all to finally reach my goal weight and stay with it! I know I will struggle, but all I can do is my best and that is what I plan to do!

I'm blind, but try not to let that little inconvenience hold me back! I have a fun little Mutt named Sassy and she is sheer pet! by no means is she a service animal!

I teach online classes in psych for my community college. I plan to get lean and mean in 2017! But, not really mean.... I'm kinda nice.

My Goals:
My Goals as of today (5/31):
1. Be more active on my teams!
2. Exercise as much as I can!
3. Stay within my WW points daily!
4. Do my job instead of Sparking! Sorry Sparkies!
5. Get to Curves 3X/week!

My Program:
I am working on following the NEW Weight Watchers program. I want to use it and lose the weight I need to lose. I'm viewing it all as if I just joined WW for the first time and this is how I track!

My program also includes working out at Curves with the Curves Smart program 3X/week, following a Bootcamp program with ST, cardio & flexibility workouts and challenges I can join!

Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I will "celebrate" 48 years of being diabetic on May 21. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and spoiled mutt named Sassy. She is a handful, but it is worth it!
The pictures you see right now are of my beloved Jack who passed away in 2013.
I turned 50 in June, 2015!! so exciting!! It is a new decade and a new milestone. the doctors told my parents I wouldn't make it to 20 and here I am!!

I am Type 1 diabetic. Losing weight will NOT cure my diabetes! At this point in time NOTHING cures Type 1 diabetes.

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I am an avid belly dancer! I take class and perform as often as possible! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer!! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

None are so blind as those who will not see. ~Author Unknown

You can have results or excuses—not both!
