Everything you want to know about Towanda but were afraid to ask.

Saturday, February 16, 2013

This is my intro for the springing sunny gals challenge.

My name is Towanda, though my given name is Emily.
I am 36 years old.
I am type 1 Diabetic.
I have a mental illness.
I have an amazing six year old daughter named Persephone.
I have a very supportive partner of one year named Staci.
I have an insulin pump which makes it very difficult to lose weight.
While I would like to see the scale drop during this challenge I am ore focused on being the healthiest I can be at any size.

I love to read, I like crime dramas, I don't watch TV but do have Netflix.
I love the gym. I love walking and jogging and elliptical and weight lifting.
I want big muscles.
I want to get back into my size 16 jeans.
I struggle with insomnia.
I like Yoga.
I love all carbohydrates.
I have a lot of food allergies.
I have an amazing cat named Isis who is five and all black.

I am looking forward to getting to know you ladies during this challenge!
Let's get healthier together. :)

    We lost our black cat to old age a few years ago - still miss him! And it is hard to believe P is 6 already - they grow so fast.

I hope you get those big muscles and the size 16s this season!
