Hi My name is Linda and I livei in Kansas but have many different places but came back home to help care for my mother she died in May of 2011 so I decided I am staying here in Ks where I grew up. I work in a group home and take care of five special needs men and I love my job most of the time. I will be moving in apt soon to start a new chapter in my life. So far I have lost 66 pounds since this day on June 1 2011 so I feel good about how it is coming off. I have been on sparkpeople for a while before I could really get it into my head. I have no children they died at the ages of 4 yr and 8 yr but I have learned to deal with my greif now to work on my mom's death. So I want to be healthy and I know I can do. I truly believe what you say about yourself is your truth so today I say I can lose this weight for me.
My first goal is to reach to 199 its my next goal for me I have only 34 pounds to go.
I am eating less and watching what I eat. I am counting calories and it seems to be working. I have done weightwatchers but today I am just eating healthy.
I AM LIVING IN WICHITA KS working in a special needs group home. I also take care of my mother who is 81 and is doing better. I am going to the gym and exercising for me. I love the swim classes and Richard Simmons tapes.
I am not addicted to swimming classes at the burn where I burn a lot of calories and gives me so much energy. It is also in the water easy on my knees. It took me a while to love it but I just kept going back and now it is one thing I do to help my weight loss and my stress.
