I am a wife and mother to 3 kids, 7 horses, 6 dogs, 4 cats. I am currently at 305#'s. I have tried to do it before, but I let everyone else's life get before mine. Now I am totally committed to me and my time and the way I feel. I have come to the realization, that if I'm not happy, I make myself miserable and my family miserable, and the only way for me to be happy is to lose some weight, get my strength and energy back and so forth. For the past 15+ years I have put my husband and kids above whatever I wanted or needed and became someone I am not proud of. It's time to change!!! Taking small goals to reach bigger goals.

My middle daughter who is 17 right now is getting married in August and I need to lose weight for that and for me.

Member Since: 2/2/2011

Fitness Minutes: 130

My Goals:
Giving up sodas (very hard for me, but am down to one a day right now)
Drink water, and more water
Try to lay off the coffee some and drink more green tea.
10 minutes of exercise a day (does building horse fence count?)
Be a more positive person, not a negative person (so hard when you keep on getting knocked down).

My Program:
I am trying to give up my sodas. I am all out again. so just don't buy anymore! Eating more salads with healthier choices. Leaner meats. Work out by working the horses, it's amazing the muscles and stuff you use when you brush them and try to give them baths. Trim their hooves, walk them down the road to another pasture, and building fences and obstacle courses for them!

Personal Information:
I grew up in Michigan, and have lived in W. Tn. since 1989. I have never liked myself, so that is a battle I am fighting still. I have a hard time making friends, esp. people my own age. I grew up with older people around and never really hung out with kids when i was little. I am uncomfortable in groups.

    Hi, I had come to see if you had any pictures of your horses, none to see. After reading your introduction you could have written that about me. Unfortunately I think that too many of us put ourselves last and put family and friends ahead of ourselves. We do need to put ourselves higher on the scale to be looked after.

    I was also like you when I was growing up, I didn't like myself. Nobody liked me so why should I like me? Fortunately I have finally learned that it isn't what others think is it what I think of myself. I KNOW I am a nice person so I now like myself and if others don't then it it there loss not mine.

    I pray that you begin to realise that you are a nice person (I am sure you are) and that you do begin to like yourself in your own skin.

    Congratulations on you weight loss so far.

    Take care,
