Hi, I'm 44, Mom of 2 great kids, work full-time, husband in the military... and overweight!!! I am tired of being unhappy about it. I am tired of sabotaging myself!! I am tired of being tired!! I am lucky, I have great support in my family and I decided it is not selfish to take the time to try to get healthy. In the long run it is a win-win situation for everyone!
My highest weight was 281, that was the day I delivered my son, 10 years ago! I lost some, eventually settled in about 253. In 2007 my mind was in the proper place to lose weight. By the time my husband deployed, in 2008, I was down to 193, wearing size 14 Old Navy jeans (they stretch!). I went up to 210 about half way through his deployment, and kept going up till I reached 243.
It is like I never make it to my goal, I lose motivation and all of a sudden everything else is more important!
So, I am starting over, that is the great thing about this, I am a work in progress, and its ok to fall off the wagon once in awhile, the important part is that I am a stubborn person, and I keep getting back up!

My husband walked out on us, one week all was great, the next he realized he hasn't loved me in a long time. The silver lining is that now I am good with spending time working on me. I finally started to take care of myself, instead of trying to control and deal with everyone else's problems.

Personal Information:
Yep my name is Trysche, pronounce Trish, I am a Patricia, and never really liked the name. If you know me, the spelling fits the personality! I am lucky to have a wonderful support system with my family. My husband rearranges his schedule and loves me no matter my weight, my sister gets up at 5 am to workout with me 3 days a week. Only thing is both of them are very fit, they have NEVER been heavy or struggle with weight (although my sister will argue the point.) That's where SPARKpeople come in!

Other Information:
I love to knit! I is very calming, and it is a lost art, that does seem to be making a comeback! Yay!
I love reading and learning.
I really love my job ('s a secret!)
and I am addicted to learning, at 44 I'm starting on a MPS in Cybersecurity.
