original page wording 1-31-11: I have been overweight for most of my life. I have been on many diets that have helped me lose weight, I just haven't been too great at keeping it off. I am a mom of 2 active kids ages 9 and 7. I have decided that it's ok to make myself a priority and not feel guilty about it. I'm ready to be healthy, lose the weight and be active with my family.

Here is to fitting our spring clothes and rebooting. I was just getting too complaisant about that high end!

Hope you have a great week.

Hey Linda! Nope, no sunshine here, lol! We got another 5-6 inches of snow last night... This week we're supposed to hit the 60 though, so I hope some sunshine comes with it! I hope you're doing well = )
