Well I'm just me; sweet, funny, witty, charming, beautiful, curvy, honest, sincere, gracious, wonderful, amazing, vivacious, stunning, brilliant, cunning, timeless, courageous, and have absolutely no ego what so ever (I pride myself on that last part! LOL.)

Mom of two teenagers. Whenever I don't know the answer to something, I don't even have to boot up the computer, I just text or ask my personal brains. It is wonderful having not one but two people around whom have the answer to every question life throws at you. Of course, I'm being totally sarcastic, but it does amuse me that they both believe that they know everything already.

But, in all seriousness ... Do you see those two beautiful faces smiling over there on the left side of this page?!?! A year ago I felt like I was letting them down. I was the "fat mom" and they paid for it. I have since lost 121.6lbs and all those things I couldn't do before aren't even a challenge now. We went to Disney last month and walked 15miles in one day. The kids couldn't keep up with me! I even had the energy to race them to the car at the end of the night! We walk together. We go to the beach. I am unstoppable. My kids have their mom back.

I finally feel good about myself. So good in fact that I have a boyfriend now. I started dating Tim back in March 2014. He had been trying to get me to go out with him for 7+ years and I was just so unhappy with myself I couldn't begin to understand how someone else could or would want to love me. I am so glad I finally gave in, because that 7+ year friendship has turned into something so wonderful and amazing that I Thank God, twice everyday for this man. He makes me feel so beautiful and perfect that all my walls have fallen away. He loves me unconditionally, as well as my children. He makes me whole.

For the first time in more years than I care to admit to, I am really truly happy. I am not depressed, nor suicidal any more. Things are moving so fast and in the most beautiful direction. I look forward to every new day now.
