I'm Missy, a 56 year old mother of four, grandmother of two, with one kid still at home (my baby, Melanie, 17). I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who cheers me on in all I do. He's CaptainCookie here on SP. I'm from New Orleans and now live just northwest of the city. A common greeting here is, "Where ya at?" Native New Orleanians are often, therefore, called Yats. I usually use the nickname NOLady, for New Orleans Lady, but that conjures up all kinds of questions. lol I have worked at home for 25 years as a transcriber for court reporters, physicians, and others. That means I've sat in front of a computer monitor for untold hours at a time and grown fatter and fatter, eventually being a slug who never moved and then a slug who COULDN'T move. At my biggest, I became insulin resistant and put an extra 100+ pounds on my already very overweight body. No more! I've lost and regained weight. Without the accountability of SparkPeople and the wonderful friends I made here, it was easy to pack the pounds back on. I'm ready to tackle it again and with God's help I will succeed. Apart from Him I can do nothing. With Him all things are possible.
