I am a beautiful full figured woman who would like to shed the "full figure" description. I have been overweight most of my life - some due to genetics but mostly from overeating with an addiction to food. I'm thankful it is food and not substances that can be more harmful.

I know I can overcome this addiction but just like alcoholics I need a 10 step program. It takes the spiritual and emotional support I can get from God and from friends. Even new found friends on Sparkpeople.

I would love to chat with anyother members who have some of the same issues.

God Bless you all as you continue this journey.

My Goals:
My initial goal is to get into the gym 5 of 7 days per week to do cardio. That's what helps burn the fat.

Secondly - I want to consistently keep my food diary to keep up with what I am eating.
This is an important key to my weight loss

thirdly, I want to make better food choices to last a lifetime.

My Program:
1.Keep a daily calorie count - it's a must
2. Aerobic exercise 5 of 7 days - MWF weight machines
3. Drink plenty of water

I have been a nurse for 30 yrs, a Nurse Practitioner for the past 6 yrs. Love taking care of my patients.

Other Information:
I have two sons who I dearly love. They have taught me how to hang out with "guy stuff". I love Star Wars, Batman, etc. However, I have a few of my own chick movies like Forrest Gump and the Notebook.
Big Eagles and Elton John fan
