I'm Tammie and single mom to three kids - my oldest daughter is 19 and in the Air Force, her picture is my background - my son is 17 and my youngest daughter is 8. I work full time as an architectural designer for a design/build company and i have a free-lance design consultant company of my own.

In the past, i've always been too busy worrying about everyone else & i've finally decided to finally do what I've been talking about doing for several years, and lose the weight I've accumlated since I had my first daughter 18 years ago! I'm hoping that it will not only make me feel better physically, but mentally, and give me the confidence boost that people tell me I deserve. I need help, I know I cannot do it myself, so I welcome any encouragement I can find. Good luck to you all!
