I have evolved, and I'm still changing!
My motivation was to become Fabulously Fit @ 40! (I just turned 40 this January.)
So muh has changed! I have lost over 40 lbs and gone from a size 18 to an 8! Besides the shrinking, I have reduced my fibromyalgia symptoms and medications. I enjoy yoga, swimming, kickboxing, aerobics and more at my local gym. Even though I did become hypoglycemic, I feel so much better than I did at this time last year! I'm not done yet. I still have more weight to loose, but I sure did come a long, long way!
I am no stranger to diets, and I have learned that I need to end my endless battle to loose weight by truly changing my eating habits once and for all. I also need to continue to exercise daily to rid myself of over 90% of my fibromyalgia symptoms. All of these changes have also lowered my cholesterol, chances of becoming diabetic, chances of heart problems and so much more.
I am a high school English teacher. I love to read, even though I'm dyslexic... that's right, I'm a dyslexic English teacher... oh, the irony of it all!
I am happily married. I have a daughter in college and a son in high school. My 3 kitties are pictured on this page.
