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!

I've been married to my wonderful DH 31 years and have two awesome kids, Dane 28 and Lindsay 24. I am truly blessed!

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.

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too.

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope; The spirit of Christmas which is peace; The heart of Christmas which is love. ~Ada V. Hendricks



My wish for you all is this; "May your day be filled with beauty, love and kindness, just like you." This gift of life that each of us have and experience, is truly "a gift".....fill your hearts with love and joy everyday and share it with others. We learn from one another...share your heart songs, give freely of yourself, let your love and light shine! Blessings to each of you, **Anonymous**

Hi Teri dear, please don't give up! You are so wonderful, so worth the time, denial, and care you need to give yourself. You would go to the moon to help someone else, so why not do the same for you! I'm praying for you. I love you! You can do
