hi! my name is sherry and well, I am never very good at writing about myself-better really at answering questions. I am 32 and going on 33 in about 2 weeks, WOW...what a thought!! I have been married for almost 3 years and love my hubby very much--we live in Toledo, Ohio and I am extremely family oriented but I moved away from home to be with my husband when we were married, I love him to death but miss my family so very much-he and I are a family now and I am loving my life with him and know that the move here was the best thing for us. I have always struggled with my weight and after being diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2000 ended up having a complete hysterectomy by the age of 27-I have no children of my own, but i DO NOT question God about this life, we may not understand but ultimately God loves us and has a plan for us and I believe that. I have a beautiful step-daughter and i LOVE her so very much and am blessed and am a better person because of having her in my life. I pray one day if it is part of HIS will to adopt and share the love I have with a child who needs a home and to feel the love God has instilled in us to share, this is a prayer request at the moment and I'm sure that if it is what GOD wants, HE will open the doors and allow it to come to be. I'm blessed wih an AMAZING family that I love more than words can EVER tell you and they have always been my rock and support. I know it is cliche' but I truly do have the very best parents in this world-they have always been there for me, good or back...thick or thin and have helped me in ways even they will never know. I can only pray to be half the parent they were to me growing up and even as an adult....When I was younger I judged my success in life based on the number of friends I had-wow, I guess we all go thru this? now....I have realized in my adult life that true friends are a rare commododity ...very few and far between and some are only for a season-I can count on my hand those I deem 'close' friends, but those I DO have I'd so anything for---Im truly blessed and they will never know-I recently was blessed with such a wonderful new friend-God works in such cool and mysterious ways and I truly feel He crossed our paths for a specific reason. My life since meeting her truly has been blessed and she is a wonderful encouragement and I thank Him for her everday-I had been missing home and my friends therequite a bit even though it has been almost 3 years, but He finally brought me someone I can truly relate to(besides my hubby--we all need friends other than our spouses) and be myself with and not feel iike I cam constantly being judged or used for an alternate reason. I am so thankful for this!!! OHHHH back to the reason I am here, I will be honest, I had bariatric surgery in February 2006 because of hormonal problems from the hysterectomy was a MUST for me to have the surgery and nothing I tell ANYONE to do unless they ABSOLUTELY have to. I believe losing weight is a lifestyle change and can happen with changing your eating habits and exercise. It has not at all been an easy road and is NOT a quick fix. I lost about 100 lbs and have about 30 or so to go to be where I want to be. I have been not so good at eating the way I absolutely should or exercising the way I need to in order to be as healthy as I know I can and should be-I was excited by my friend telling me of this site and hope that with this tool and her encouragement I can change my bad habits and help her as well and share experiences and encouragement with others and meet new friends along the way!!!

My Goals:
I REALLY just want to get under 200 lbs. I can't tell you the last time I was in the 100's...I am happy where I am at, but want to tone up and continue on my road to being healthier.

My Program:
I have always been good at drinking at least 8 cups of water each day, but what I need to be more aware of would be my portion sizes and exercising more.

Personal Information:
My name is Sherry and I am from Ohio. I love to travel and am very family oriented. We have one dog and his name is Scooter. My step daughter is 7 and she loves soccer and swimming and she and my hubby are the joy of my life. Number one in my life is my Lord and Savior and am working very hard to be a better Christian and serve Him the way I should each day. I am 'just me' and love to be around people and help wherever I am needed and love to see people smile and hear them laugh....

    Why God Made Friends

    God made the world with a heart full of love
    Then He looked down from Heaven above,
    And saw that we all need a helping hand,
    Someone to share with, who'll understand.
    He made special people to see us through
    The glad times and the sad times, too;
    A person on whom we can always depend,
    Someone we can call a friend.
    God made friends so we'll carry a part
    Of His perfect love in all our hearts.

    I hope you dont mind me sending you motivation stuff,
    I like doing stuff like this and making people happy,
    I makes me feel so content,

    The Winner - Me!
    To be a winner I must know
    It's up to me to make it so
    Not the me most people see
    But, the me I'm free to be.
    The me that lets God's power through
    To guide the things I think and do.
    The me that knows which choice to make
    The me that sees which path to take.
    I am a winner here and now
    The me within has shown me how
    To love myself and all I've done
    The me I am has truly won!
