Thanks for stopping by. I am 50 years old and have been married for 24 years and am the mother of 2 wonderful boys (ages 17 and 21).

I have had trouble maintaining my weight for almost my entire adult life. Once I started having kids, it was very easy to forget to exercise and eat right all the time. I got up to a weight of 242 pounds. I started working on losing weight at the beginning of August 2010. By the end of February due to exercising 2 hours a day and counting every calorie that went into my mouth, I got down to 145 pounds and a size 8. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would ever get down to single digit sizes again.

I was doing really well maintaining until about September or October of 2011. I began snacking too much and not exercising, which put me back up to 169 and definitely out of my size 8. I refuse to buy more fat clothes. I have some pants that I still fit into while I start working on getting back down to at least 145. I have learned that I cannot have the least little bit of a sedentary lifestyle and stay the healthy weight that I need to get to.

(Update 1-11-13) I have gotten down to the 145 and less. So much so that I have set a new goal of maintaining at 120-125. I do not know if this will be possible because I have been between 128-132 for 4 months. I am just going to have to keep working and if God wants me to just be between 125-130 then so be it. I am still not the 242 that I used to be and I refuse to ever go back there again.

(Update 7-21-13) I have maintained between 130 - 135 since March. I still have the goal of getting down to 125. I have been working hard on trying to exercise at least once a day. It doesn't always work out that way especially during the school year, so that is one of the things I need to work on big time once school starts back up.

Thanks for commenting on my blog.
I hope you find a more permanent position as well.
Cuts in education affect our future adults in SO many ways!

We can certainly bounce back quicker than our kids. God bless us all!
