2008 Me in St. Ignace, MI





St Thomas July 2010 me 43yo with my girls. Approx 9 months of P90X.





This is why I'm here. A SP friend gave me the courage to post this. Saving this as a reminder

Still working P90X....nearing the 1 year mark.

A forty something nurse, wife, and mother of two trying to get on track before my weight gets out of control. I'm hoping this is a tool I can use to stay focused and connect with others with the same goals.
I want to be able to look in the mirror and like what I see and not worry about what is hanging over,out, or down. This is my challenge to myself to be the best I can physically, improve my energy level and just be happy with myself.

It's not what you are that holds you ...

It's not what you are that holds you back, it's what you think you're not.

When I started this I was lazy,unfit, and goo. If I can do it this anyone can.

I'm 5'4" and a very small frame. So, this is a lot of weight for me.

I have lost a few pounds and started exercise programs before and usually return to my old habits of not enough exercise and too many bowls of Bryers ice cream.
I love spending time with my family, camping, gardening, fishing, and reading. I want to find more outdoor activities to share with my family.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
