Welcome! I am a SAHM as well as an artist. I am currently teaching myself Airbrushing and I have just sold my first airbrushed mailbox! Yay I have 3 girls. 6, 8 and 11. My husband and I have been married for almost 7 years, we will hit that mark in March.

In 2001 my father decided that he wasn't needed here on earth nor did he need anyone so he decided to take his life on June 9, 2001. So that starts the comfort food....

In 2004 I found out that I had cancer. It was Hodgkins Lymphoma (cancer of the lymphnodes). In April 2005 I was told there was no more. So as far as I know after the Chemo ( and Radiation, I have made it 2 years cancer free. I was the opposite with chemo. Most people lose tons of weight and their hair. Well I gained like 65 lbs, kept most of my hair except the top and my eyebrows and lashes and lost my toenails... Now that is

Anyway I have been a big girl. Being 6'0" tall is well lets face is, not "Average" for a woman. After Chemo I hit my highest weight 310 lbs. I weighed that in Feb 2007. Then I went to weight watchers till June 2007 and I had lost 33 lbs. I should have been happy, but I didn't see it, my clothes were still tight, I didn't understand. Then they told me that it was mostly Chemo water that I had been losing and "internal fat"..... I was like huh? That was the fat that was around my organs... EWE.... So I went off WW in June, but after thanks giving I went from 277 back to 285. My husband told me that if I wanted a bowflex for Christmas thats what I would get, and now I am waiting, patiently.....HAHA..... So that's why I am here... I am getting my life back!

So here we gooooooooo......

    Hey sweets! Just checking in on how you're doing today? The weekends are always toughest on us and it's okay to splurge a LITTLE on your meals, but don't completely fall off the wagon... and should that happen, it's okay. Just jump right back on that wagon the following day ;)

    Luv ya!
