Making lifelong, lasting changes, one day at a time.

It is now November, a year after my second child, and I haven't lost any weight. I'm not going to let that get me down. I'm healthier mentally than I have ever been and I'm ready to start on my physical transformation.

Personal Information:
I just turned 29. I want to be healthy in every way, not just physically. I have realized in the last three years that I am a binge eater, and an emotional eater. That has led to my weight gain. With this realization I have started to find healthier ways to deal with my emotions and have slowly been transforming my mind. I feel like I now have the tools and I am mentally ready for a physical transformation.

I am a wife of 7 years to an amazingly patient and gracious husband. I am a mother is two amazing little boys, 3 and 1. I have a desire to have more children, but I want to focus on me and my health for just a little bit longer before we start trying again.

I love hanging out with friends, trying new foods and experiencing new things.

The Power of Friends

Everyone knows of the power of friends,
The terrific result, when everything blends.
When people have friends, they donít stand alone;
Friends always help, when you face the unknown.

Friends give you courage to face problems untold,
So the love of a friend can help make you bold.
They can help you to live a much richer life,
So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

Thanks for being my friend!
