Let's see an introduction of me, let's see. I am 35, single, no kids. I live in beautiful Washington state. I own a daycare center and I work long hours, but I love what I do. Those 50 little dolls are my babies! I am an avid scrapbooker and I take picture of everything, all the time. I travel quite a bit and I love it.
I have been heavy my whole life and I have tried it all to lose it. I have lost and gain a thousand pounds over the years. But I cannot go on this way. My body hurts, I am tired all the time and my blood pressure is out of control. My biggest downfall is I HATE anything that looks like it might be exercise. That is my biggest challenge, that is my hurddle. I don't want to lose weight to look hot, that ship has sailed, or to get a husband, I NEED TO LIVE! And I want to live a healthy life, one where I can walk without becoming winded and stand without my feet and back hurting.
My goals are to loose weight the healthy way, with exercise and eating healthy.
I am eating 1400 calories a day and going to the YMCA for exercise 5 days a week.
I am 35, single and live in Wenatchee, WA. But I grew up in the Seattle area. I come from a big family, I am the last of seven kids. I have a great sense of humor and I love to make people laugh. I own a daycare center and I love working with kids. I am a born-again Chistian and I have gone to church my whole life. I love the Lord and I am honored to be one of His children. I am a Baptist if you want to label it. I collect Raggedy Ann & Andy stuff and I have a huge collection. I guess that's me in a nut shell!!
I am an easy going gal, I am generally a happy person and I have a great life. But the only thing missing is a healthier me, so that's why I am here!!

Hi there! Thanks for your comments on my page. I appreciate the kind words. And it's nice to run into someone to whom you can relate. When I first started this journey, I knew that I had atleast 260 pounds to lose. I didn't, however, dwell on that number or even think about it very often. I don't know how i managed that, but I'm grateful because I don't know if I would have done as well if I constantly thought about how much I had to lose. I, like you, wanted to do this because I wanted to simple things like walk around, go shopping, and just have a normal life that didn't include planning events/days around my physical limitations. Now, I'm 4 pounds away from my first 100 pounds lost and that feels really good. But more than that, I can walk around a mall and shop. I can go places and not worry about whether my body can handle the effort of getting around. I'm still 164 pounds away from my goal and I try not to think about that too much. I know I'll get there....I just need to stay focused.
I'm glad I could be someone you could relate to and an inspiration! You always here people say, "If I could do it, then so can you." Well....I hate to say it, but truly, if I could do it, so can you!!!! If you ever need anyone to talk to or just a supportive ear....just send me a message. I'd be happy to support you as you continue on with your journey. Congratulations on your progress so far!!!!! Keep it up!!!
