Hi,i'm Catherine,43 from North Texas and a mom of 4,2 adults or so they think,and 2 teenagers. I've discovered that teenagers are the reason some species get to eat their young.
The pictures on my sparkpage are from the day I decided to start this journey ,up until July of 08'. The start picture was 235 pounds..the last picture was 156 pounds,,,hopefully i'll be able to add a final picture soon !

Member Since: 10/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 2,953

My Goals:
To lose another 12/15 pounds,and tone up the problem areas around my abs and thighs. I have low back and hip problems which seem to come with the fibro and I know that if my abs are toned up,my back will be stronger

My Program:
I'm watching what I eat,have cut out refined sugars,and soda's of any kind,along with my much loved bread. I work out with the pilates ball at least 3 times a week,and even sit on it whenever i'm on the computer. I also use resistance bands,hand weights,and hula hoop for up to 30 minutes a day ( I think i'm a little addicted)

Personal Information:
I live in North Central Texas,and am a sahm with 4 kids (okay,2 adults,2 teenagers not exactly kids anymore) I also have two furry sons who are both over 100 pounds,and 3 cats that own me.

Other Information:
I'm one of those half crazed people that run outside to take pictures when the tornado sirens go off,or drive all over the place looking for severe weather...I love anything to do with the outdoors,and taking pictures while i'm there. Also a football fanatic to the extreme,,,if youve never had the police show up at your house because you were screaming at a football game,you don't know what you're missing !

    Hello, I came across your page while looking for inspiration and hope on the fibromyalgia team pages. I was just diagnosed.

    Thank you so much for the hope and inspiration. I have been told that it is very difficult to lose weight and exercise with fibro. I was looking for someone who broke that theory because I plan on breaking it also.

    Do you still suffer from fibromyalgia?
