I am a 49 year old female with an 19 year old son who will be leaving for college in September. I am so happy for him but so sad for me. I recently left my new husband of 4 years due to emotional abuse so I've eaten myself into depression and have gained about 40 lbs! I could have stood to lose 10 to 15 before that. Although I know better, when I'm upset or depressed, I head straight for the ice cream. I also ride a Harley and refuse to get on it in the Spring looking like this. I need help! Update 6/08. I am now divorced and 18 lbs lighter! I plan to continue on this very healthy and spiritual journey I am on. Thank you to all my SP friends/family for the support, love and guidance. I couoldn' t have gotten this far without you. God Bless You All! Make that 21.6 lbs lighter!! Praise the Lord!
7/14/08 - 25 LBS AND COUNTING!!! Life is good and my relationship with God and my Angels is absolutely wonderful!
10/11/08 - 31.4 LBS and COUNTING!!! None of my jeans fit me anymore - back in SIZE 10 - Woohoo!!! Thank you SP!
12/27/08 - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! My spiritual journey has simply exploded and I am experiencing true miracles! Praise God! This year, I truly felt the real meaning of Christmas and celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I've missed all of you so much and intend on making sure I check in at least a few times per week. I am now down 34 lbs and actually bought a cute black mini-skirt that I wore on Christmas Eve and got so many compliments. I also bought my own beautiful townhouse for my son and I and my closing is on 1/16/09. Please pray for me and that all goes smooth and easy. I have my mortage commitment and it is sitting at FHA right now waiting for final approval. I have all the confidence in God that it IS approved and I should receive the good news this coming week so stay tuned....It's great to be back :) Update 2/09: My mortgage is approved - Praise God!!! My son and I will no longer be throwing our money away renting! God has led me to this incredible opportunity and I am now beginning a beautiful new phase of my life and look forward to having all of you come along with me :) More to come after the move!

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I need to get back to my ideal weight so that I can stop feeling ill, having back problems, etc. I am determined to lose 50 lbs and look better than ever. I definitely want to look good in a bathing suit this summer! I also want to help anyone else that needs support.

My Program:
I just joined today so I've printed out my grocery list and plan on shopping in the am so I can make my plan for my first week. I also joined a gym several weeks ago and definitely want to get back there as soon as I get over this flu :-(

Personal Information:
I live in Northern CT, recently separated. I work for a national publishing company in advertising. I was traveling extensively but just switched jobs within the company and will now be home every night...more time to work out!

Other Information:
One of my most favorite things to do (besides hanging out with my son) is riding my new Harley! It's so liberating and the back roads of New England are gorgeous to ride on.
