I am a mother to 3 wonderfully rotten kids ages 12, 8, and 7. I am recently married to an amazing guy who truly loves me for who I am. I teach high school in a smallish school in central Arkansas. I started this journey a few years ago and lost about 50 pounds after that my motivation faltered and I kept gaining and losing the same 10-15 pounds. Last summer my mother passed away suddenly from lung cancer (that no one was aware she had). I spent a few months extremely depressed trying to come to terms with her passing, during which time I started putting on weight again. The end of October, i decided it was finally time to make this happen for real. Since then I have lost 82 pounds and 127 pounds from my all time high. I still have a lot of work to do before i reach my goal but I know i will get there. Hope to hear from you.

Stay off soda...that stuff is just poison to the body.


My Program:
I completely quit soda (10-25-11) because I was not willing to let a drug control my life any longer.

I am eating healthier but mainly practicing portion control.

I am also working on consistently being active, not only with regular exercise but in all aspects of my life.

    Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

    You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

    In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

    "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

    Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

    Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

    "Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill
