October '13 - feeling great!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
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!
My progess so far:
January 5, 2011 - starting over again. it's has nothing to do with a new years resolution, just circumstances in my life that make me want to feel better about myself. i've done it before, so i know what it takes, i just hope it have the energy again this time

I'm 41 years old and live in SE Pennsylvania (Philly 'burbs) - i am a former child/teen gymnast that had a killer 6-pack and 9% body fat, so it KILLS me now that i have this body to deal with! i'm changing that NOW and never looking back!

I can't imagine what life would be like without them - they're both my joy and frustration, and wouldn't change it for anything!
i LOVE to travel, and can never seem to do enough - i've been fortunate to visit many places already - but there are just SO many more! my faves so far:
St. Thomas, USVI
Sonoma / Napa Valley
New York City - especially between Thxgvg & Christmas!
Florida - East Coast
* Looking forward to travelling to Europe more next!!
