I am a 38 year old married mother of 3 teenagers. I live in the Great Smoky Mountains of NC. I have in the last 16 years lost and gained back the same 25-35 pounds. I would like so much to get to my goal weight and just stay there. What I truly want is to finally stop focusing on weight in my life and just LIVE!! For as long as I can remember I have focused on my body and that number on the scale. I want to be free from that bondage! One step at a time I am learning how to do that. This journey is not just physical, but spiritual as well. One thing I am certain of now, is that it will never end. This transformation is continual, and that's ok.

Member Since: 1/31/2010

Fitness Minutes: 1,515

My Goals:
To be strong and confident everyday. To be a healthy role model for my kids. To maintain my health as long as possible. To only focus on today and not beat myself for failures of yesterday. Keep moving forward.

My Program:
Focusing on eating very little to no sugar or "whites". Watching calories with my SP app. I am very strict during the week while I am at the office. I do ease up a little on the weekends so as not to be a food nazi. Zumba and walking three to five times a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Western NC with my husband and three teenagers. I work fulltime in marketing, although I think I might love a career in nutrition and fitness. It is fast becoming addicting!! I have three dogs and two cats. My newest addition is a dachsund puppy. She has stolen my heart!!

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Good morning!! It is so nice to meet you! I wanted to stop by and say thank you for the friend add! I see that you are new to SP, so if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask! I will help you as much as I can!


    P.S. Check out the Turkeys Vs Farmers challenge on the 30 Somethings with 50-99 lbs to lose team! It's a really heated challenge (as we're very close in points), and we'd love to have you join us! Turkeys are odd birth years, Farmers are even birth years!
