Hello, my name is Kari and I have set a goal of losing 69 more pounds. I have been at a standstill since approximatelt two years ago, when I got married. Before that I had lost 76 lbs in one year, used to be in a size 22, and was most miserable. I didn't do any particular diet, just exercised three to four times a week for 30 minutes to an hour, treadmill, freeweights, crunches, etc. I also cut back on my portions to saucer sized portions and cut my sugar to less than 2/3 the previous intake. After the last two years, marriage, four out of five of our teens moving out after highschool, I am tired of maintaining my weight and current size 16, my goal is to get down to 145lbs. and into a size 10 or less. Wish me luck!
My goal is to lose 69 lbs. by June 30th, 2010 and to go from a size 16 to a 10. I want ot be healthy and enjoy life with the love of my life, my husband,Rob!
I am counting calories and keeping it under 1,500 per day and limiting fat grams to 30 or less per day, focusing on exercise 4-5 days a week for 30 minutes to an hour each time. I know it works, because I lost the first 76 lbs. this way! :)
My name is Kari, I am 40 years of age, a proud new grandmother, extremely blessed wife to my husband and mother to our five combined children ages 16-20! We have two sons going into the Navy, my husband is retired Navy, I am a Texas Master Florist, and have been in the Floral Industry for approximately 24 years now, started when I was a teenager!I love art, Spurs basketball, Astros baseball, Facebooking, and blogging on Multiply and now here as well! Looking forward to losing the other half of my weight, and wearing a pretty swimsuit for the first time ever, not a "Big Girl" swimsuit!!! LOL! :)Victoria, TX
I lost my mom to smoking/cancer in 2002, my Dad has had heart trouble in the past three years, and my husband and I want to lose the weight so we can be healthy and enjoy the rest off our life together, not endure it. God Bless us every one!

I have been away far too long... I've lost five family members in the last couple of years, I've been on an emotional roller coaster and a yo yo diet and weight loss process, but I am finally making a breakthrough. I had got down to 198, am currently down to 216 from going back up to 230... But this time my hubby and I are on a physician supervised diet and exercise plan and are pre WLS candidates.

A mother can be almost any size or age.
She has soft hands and smells good.
A mother likes new dresses, music, a clean house
and her children's kisses.
A mother does not like having her children sick,
temper tantrums, loud noise, or bad report cards.
She can bake good cakes and pies,
but likes to see her children eat vegetables.
A mother is underpaid, has long hours
and gets very little rest.
She worries too much about her children.
And no matter how old they are,
she still likes to think of her children as babies.
A mother is the guardian angel of the family,
the queen, the tender heart of love.
She is the best friend anyone ever has.
A Mother is "LOVE."
