My Goals:
My first goal is to lose 58 lbs. I now have 52 more to go.

My second goal is to lose the cigarette smoking habit. It is tough and I havent mastered it yet.

My Program:
I am following the SP guidelines to healthy eating. I read the articles, try recipes, count calories, try to eat 5 veggies a day, and drink atleast 8 cups of water..I have also joined the fitness minutes challange. It encourages you to work out more. If you haven't done it yet I urge you to join. It is very encouraging.

Personal Information:
I currently live in South Carolina with my wonderful husband. He has been a blessing in my life. I have never been as happy as I am now. I have three older sons from a previous marraige. Two are in the marines and the youngest (who is 20) is back home living with his dad.

Other Information:
My highest accomplishment will be when I quit smoking. I have tried several times and keep failing.

When I a have reached my goal weight I would like to have my size 16 wedding dress re-sized so that my husband can see the woman he originally met. When we met I was at a size 10. When we married earlier this year I had gained so much weight.

Hi Sonia! I had to check out your site after you left me the nice message... looks like we have quite a few things in common. I'm also in my 40's with about 50 pounds to lose. I am also trying to quit the smoking habit... and it IS hard! I've been chewing Nicotine gum my favorite kind is the 'Equate' brand at Walmart. It has the best flavor. You can also chew/suck on cinnamon sticks if you still need the oral part more than just chewing gum. I haven't had a cigarette in a month or so. I work in Imaging so I see MRI's every day... sorry you have to have surgery but I hope it goes well and you can get back up an at it soon! We can do this!!! On to day 2 .... good luck on your journey...

My MRI showed that I tore a few tendons in my bicep and shoulder. I will have to have surgery. Still waiting on authorization from my workers comp. Meanwhile I am in severe pain daily due to these injuries. Thanks for asking.
