Everybody loves a story, and here is mine. As a teen I was always very active; swim team, track and field, field hockey, etc. I was skinny, almost sickly looking. However, like most the day I turned 18 I felt my metabolism slow down. For years I didn't really care, I still felt decent about myself and knew I was eating right, or so I thought.

I reached my highest weight ever this summer. After years of beating myself up because of the way I look and allowing others to put me down, I have am taking the high road. I am going to treat myself with more respect. I am going to love myself. I am not going to allow others to put me down.

Loves: The feeling right after exercising, like you can do almost anything. The way my legs look when they are toned. Fat Free cottage cheese with peaches. Grilled chicken dizzled with lemon juice and freshly cracked pepper over brown rice with lemon zest. Swimming. Playing ball with my dogs. Going to the park with my fiance with our dogs. Buying new work out clothes. Reading. Writing. Lazy days. Biking.

Dislikes: Diet sodas (used to love them read some interesting stuff about aspartame). Heavy foods. The feeling of indulging too much. My stomach (at the moment). Gatorade. Heat. Broken promises.

    Thank you so much for your kind words on my page. It's nice to here that I've helped inspire you! I'm down ALMOST 40 pounds now...have to update that picture...that was 3 months ago...I can't believe time has flown by! LOL.

    Seriously though, if there is anything that I can help you with please don't hesitate to buzz me. If you're close to me, maybe we can meet up at the gym or something.

    Take Care,
