My name is Jackie!! I am a married mother of 3 and I am working on my weight loss ambitions! I lost 61 pounds in 2007, but gained all of it back after becoming pregnant with our third child. My husband works offshore, and it just was NOT very easy to take care of 3 small children along for 2 weeks at a time!

In 2010, I started having many health problems, and it took 18 months and 5 doctors to finally diagnose the issue- I was prediabetic at the age of 26.


My dad was 25 when he was diagnosed with diabetes but chose to rely on medications rather than changing his lifestyle. Eventually, he was diagnosed with hypertension as well as many, many other problems. He finally died in 2003 from cirrosis of the liver.

I knew without a doubt that I did NOT want my children growing up with the worries and fears that I had to regarding my dad's health. Therefore, we turned it into a family effort. It took a little while, but even my husband joined in with the weight losing!

It hasn't been easy, and I wish there were less plateaus along the way, but I am still going in a positive direction. This is not a reflection of what happened in a short period of time, but rather many years of poor decisions. So, if it takes me a little longer than I wanted to reverse it, that is something I am willing to accept as long as I am doing it in a healthy, safe manner.
