Slow and steady gets you there

Hey y'all! I'm "iadopted5". Yes, I did adopt 5 children. They were 4,5 7, 14 & 16 at ages of adoption. They are now 16, 16, 18, 18 & 19. Yes, they are a big stress and blessing in my life. Being a therapeutic parent for the past 13 yrs has taken a HUGE toll on my body by way of stress, worry and secondary PTSD. I have ridden the weight loss roller coaster most of my adult life, but the past few yrs have been the hardest. I am 42 (in September) and will be married 25 yrs to the love of my life next October, so I am ready to lose this weight for good! I'm in search of me again. The kids are half-way out the door and it's about time to turn attention back to self! I love me. But I want to love "less" of me. I look forward to meetin' y'all & totally look forward to learning lots of new info! So Howdy!
