Well let's see. I'm a 37 year old mother of one. My daughter is a teenager and means more to me than anything on Earth. I struggle with emotional issues attached to my unhealthy relationship to food. I've always hated food. Not the taste or anything like that, matter of fact I LOVE to cook for others. But I don't like the actual action of eating. I think this is because it has some not so happy memories attached to it. So I speed eat. I can finish an entire steak, salad, veggies and potato in about 15 to 25 minutes. A burger? 10 minutes or less! And that's not an exaggeration unfortunately. Which leads to over-eating. When I cook I like to cook healthy foods. No canned or frozed or boxed stuff. I admit I don't eat healthy all the time though. I wish I did and I'm working on that but in my current situation it's very difficult. I view food almost as a punishing thing. If I can change that and increase my exercise then I think I'll make it!

My Program:
I'm working on myself. I'm retraining myself to slow down when I eat. I'm amazed at how full I get when I do this and on such a small amount of food! I'm increasing my exercise. I love to walk on the treadmill. I also enjoy lifting weights.

Personal Information:
I live in Austin Texas with my wife and daughter. I'm originally from a podunk town called Perryton Texas.

What I do: I'm a Therapist on hiatus. I'm hoping to go back to school so that I can teach abnormal psychology classes at a local community college someday.

I'm a nerd and book geek! I'm into writing and photography. I'm a water spirit so anything that's by/on the water and I'm there! I love to play cards and board games.

My favorite thing to do is spend time with my daughter. She's 16. She plays the cello like an angel, plays guitar, and sings (takes after her mom!). She's artistic, intelligent and just wonderful. Not that I'm proud or anything...

My favorite Quotes:

What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

The soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears.
-Native American proverb

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset...

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. “ ~ William James

    Do Not go to Luby's. Your brain chemistry has been changed by the fat, sugar, and sodium in restaurant foods. You have to try to get the cravings for those foods out of your system. Exercise or eat almonds. Raw almonds with no sodium added. If you eat 23 that is about an ounce. They will fill you up and you won't be feeling hungry unless it's emotional hunger. If you have emotional hunger do some type of exercise.

    You can get rid of the extra weight!!! Believe you can!!!!

    I live in between Topeka and Manhatten. Up close to highway 24.

    So I was right. Glad you aren't upset. I am Catholic and I don't believe in two men or two women getting married to each other. It is outlawed here in Kansas and I am glad for that. I mean if God wanted men to marry each other he would have made a male friend for Adam and not a female.
    Do you get a lot of flack from people because you are gay? I have never spoken to a gay person before, so this is a first for me.

    Thanks, I really love my page. I went from mermaids to gothic art, I changed it last night! I googled the photos:)

    Talk to you later

    Hello, I have seen you around the message boards on No Topic Off Limits. I hope I am not sounding too blunt or rude, but are you gay? There I said it, I hope I have not embarrassed you.

    My name Is HeartStopper, com'on by my page sometime and we'll chat:)
    Please understand I am not trying to be ass, but if my senses are right I think you might be gay. Oh Jeez, there I did it again:(

    Shutting up.
