Once and For All!

6/14/13 Day 1 - I've been overweight since the age of 11. I gained 25 pounds as a kid in the 5th grade when my parents divorced. 7 years of stress and unhappiness followed and overeating became a lifelong habit and way to cure stress and numb pain...so I thought. All along it only created more. Now I find myself at 52, at my highest weight ever. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy and there for them. I'm ready, I can do this...once and for all!

My Program:
I started Spark in June 2013 officially. Right now I am just keeping my calories in range. I am TRYING incorporate exercise and am planning to hop on my treadmill now that I moved it to the new den and it won't be used as a closet anymore!!

Personal Information:
My name is Teri ~ I live on the west coast of the state of Washington, in the beautiful Pacific NW. We live 30 miles from the beach and go at every opportunity, it's my favorite thing! I've been married to my wonderful DH 30 years and have two awesome kids, Dane 28 and Lindsay 24. I am truly blessed!

Other Information:
I love music, interior decorating, gardening, anything artistic and kitties!

I could watch DIY network and HGTV all day long!

I love going to concerts and go as often as I can.

Did I say I LOVE THE BEACH! :)

Thanks Teri dear for your comments on my blog. I appreciated hearing from you! My friend explained a lot to me of what her Dr said. Including, if your liver isn't functioning well... we both had liver disease due to meds. You will have a very difficult time losing weight because it's our filter. It has to heal, mine screamed the other day when l ate Chipotle spicy bowl. I only aye 1/4 of the bowl but the next day l was In terrible pain. There wasn't anything in it that l wasn't allowed, so now l'm wondering if it was the black beans. I had black bean soup yesterday, and was suffering later. My friend cut out all legumes too for 3 months. It doesn't leave much to eat that isn't healthy lol! I was shocked to see sugar in almost everything! I have another friend who has a lo of migraines, and she is going to try going sugar free. I am still 22 ponds heavier than last year ( thank you steroids) but each day is a blessing, and l am determined to help myself. I send you loving thoughts, and wanted to remind you that God loves you and so do l!
