New Years 07' with my son in the red striped shirt and his friends.
I have 10 pics in my gallery
Determined to do it this time
Hi my name is Freddy Flores, and yes I am female and yes that is my real name. I live in Cheyenne Wyoming. Grew up in the Bronx. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Been married for about 22 years. I am tired of being overweight, have been overweight all my life. But I just feel that I need to do something. I have been considering gastric bypass or the lap band, but those are such drastic measures. They are life changing operations that would require me to change my lifestyle anyway ...
Hi my name is Freddy Flores, and yes I am female and yes that is my real name. I live in Cheyenne Wyoming. Grew up in the Bronx. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Been married for about 22 years. I am tired of being overweight, have been overweight all my life. But I just feel that I need to do something. I have been considering gastric bypass or the lap band, but those are such drastic measures. They are life changing operations that would require me to change my lifestyle anyway so why not try and do it without it, I figure. I am so glad that I found this website, what an excellent tool and the price was right. Loaded with information and support. Good Luck to everyone on their weight loss journey. I will post pics soon.

My goals are to change my lifestyle. I want to make eating right second nature. I want to exercise everyday, cardio one day and strength the next. I want to consume my 8 glasses of water and ultimately, hopefully lose at least 75 lbs.
I am tracking my food consumption on this sight. I am exercising on my treadmill every day and trying to jog for a few minutes each time. I do 2 miles and so far have been able to do that in 34.45 minutes, my best time yet.
My dad is Puerto Rican and my mom is Spanish. I have lived in Cheyenne Wyoming since 1993. Lived in Jersey City NJ before that and grew up in the Bronx. Went to H.S. at Murry Bergtraum in Manhattan. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Wyoming. I am a Social Worker in a long term care facility.
If I could afford it I would be back in school getting a Master's in something. I enjoy being a student and learning. I love Hip Hop, R&B, Salsa, Reggaeton, Reggae, Merengue, and Batacha music.
