Hi there! I'm a happily married, stay at home/homeschooling mom to 7 children aged 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 1. As you can imagine our lives are very busy. I was always at a very healthy weight until I got pregnant for the first time. I now have 143 pounds to lose, but I'm excited to get my health and body back after birthing children!
I have a very full life! I love to serve and volunteer at our church and in our community. I am a total Deadhead, and I love all jam band and bluegrass music!
We are a homesteading family, which means we raise all our own vegetables and meat. We barter with local farm friends for other things we need and use. A hobby of mine is making every single thing we use such as soaps, lotions, deodorants, cleaners, toothpaste, vitamins, medicines, etc. I don't like to use any chemicals or toxins so we are a strictly organic family.
I have 3 children who suffer from celiac disease and casein intolerance. My goal is to eventually rid our home of all grain, dairy, and refined/organic sugar.
Would love to make some new friends who have similar interests and also have a lot of weight to lose! :)
