I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids ages 23 and 16 and the mother of a handsome doxie who is my baby as well as the "big" mommy to my daughters doxie. I have had weight and body image issues for over 30 years. I am a type 2 diabetic that has seen what this horrible disease has done to many of my family members and I do not want to spend my life living for the diabetes but for my family. I have recently gone back to work doing what I love emergency dispatching for my local sheriff's department and municipalities.

My Goals:
In the past my goals have been to get the weight off and everything would be ok; this time around my goal is to dig deeper into what causes my over eating and weight gain and squash it.

My Program:
The program that I am following this time around is not the quick fix one of loosing 90 pounds in 6 months but to go about it safely and healthily but having a realistic goal of almost 2 years to loose the weight and enjoying the small rewards.

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara Garner-Metcalf and I am originally from the Washington DC metro area of Silver Spring, MD. In 2002 I moved the Beaufort, SC where I work as an emergency dispatcher. I can be contacted at
I look forward to hearing from like minded people.

Other Information:
I believe that though technology has allowed some wonderful ways of meeting people that the simple life is still the best. No cell phones, computers or gadgets that are supposed to make life easier because all it has done is made us lazy. I think that trying to find a balance is the key to this and in todays society everyone is such a rush that we forget to stop and enjoy all that God has given us.
