Hi! My name is Gloria. I'm 39 years old. I've been married to my highschool sweetheart since 1992 and we have an amazing 19 year old son. We live in South Texas.

I have battled my weight my entire adult life. In my 20s, I managed to lose 60 pounds and keep it off. I was faithful to my workouts and I planned my meals. Then, in my 30s I gained it all back and then some...

As I'm approaching the big 4-0, I want to look and feel my best. I have decided now is the time to get my weight in check for good!

I completed a bible study: Beth Moore's "Breaking Free" and it changed my life! I understand why I ran to food for comfort and I fixed the root of the problem instead of trying to fix the side-effect (overeating). I realized I am addicted to food and decided, it was time to remove that "idol" in my life so I can honor the Lord. When I have a bad day or temptation nears, I pray to God and all is well. It is working for me and I give Him all the praise and glory!

Member Since: 5/19/2006

Fitness Minutes: 1,700

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose 100 pounds.

My mini goal is to reach 20 pound losses and celebrate each one!

Exercise regularly at least 5 days a week, 30 minutes a day.

My Program:
I eat a Vegan diet 99% of the time as of June 2012. The other 1% I am vegetarian.

I workout at Zumba 2-3 times a week and the "off" days I workout at home with DVDs or ride my bicycle.

I won't rely on the scale to track my progress. I will use the tape measure once-a-month instead.

Personal Information:
I praise God for allowing me to lose weight in a healthy, permanent way!

Other Information:
I read the book, "You Are Not What You Weigh" by Lisa Bevere and it changed my life completely! Which is why I decided to eat vegan, as a self-sacrifice to the Lord.
