Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am a 43 year old mother who is 150 pounds over weight. I want more children while I still can, but my weight is keeping that from happening. I have a beautiful husband who is so supportive, and I have a fifteen year old who is inspiring beyond words, as he battles Leukemia in the bravest way possible.

* to limit fatty dairy products.
* to cut out sugar and refined foods totally. I have a sugar and carbohydrate addiction. Yes, a real addiction!
* to practice portion control and keep my calories in check.

Hang in there. Don't give up. It will be worth it... My second mistake was dragging my family into my vortex of shame.
