I never had much of a weight problem until I got Graves Disease (a thyroid disease) in 2000 and soon after, Type 1 diabetes. After having my thyroid removed and starting an insulin injection program, I gained fifty pounds in three months and although I live a relatively healthy lifestyle (whole grains, fresh veggies and fruits, lots of excercise), I still have not been able to take it all off b/c I have become an emotional eater. But I don't care what it takes, I WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT!!!
Lower my cholesterol & lose the excess baggage! I'm tired of carrying it around.
Eating more real foods and less processed, counting calories, and starting to add in cardio.
I'm from Wichita, KS and work for the USPS Remote Encoding Center. I married to Dennis Miller 6/4/00 and our only child is a German Shepherd/Husky mix. I fancy myself a writer but have yet to produce a manuscript worth submitting to a literary agent. Still trying! I enjoy reading, writing, baking and decorating cakes and planning (parties, vacations, anything). I have a food blog at http://reciperhapsody.wordpress.com
Some of my favorite people (besides my friends and family): Ozzy Osbourne, Kevin Smith, Janet Evanovich, Drew Barrymore, Jack Black, Ellen Degeneres, Bill Clinton.

Hi, thanks for leaving a comment on my Spark Page. I love your 'winner' picture. You look so proud of yourself... good girl.
I have got a blog hosted on Wordpress. My url is http://nuttyasafruitcake.co.uk. I'm new to the bloggersphere and am still finding my ideas as to what I want to put on my site. I want to make myself accountable for my health and keep a record of what works and be honest when it doesn't.
Anyway, 10 for 2010 is focusing me the new decade....

That is what she said. The anchor had been saying like do you think your mom is beautiful and she said yes and then she just blurted out " I like my Mom because she is sweet". Everyone around us went "Awwww" now if she'll just remember that when she is 15. LOL
