I'm Valerie, I am 31 years old, I have 3 kids; ages 11, 8 and 18 months... I must have become very COMFORTABLE in the past 14 years to have gained so much weight, without really even REALIZING I am HUGE!!!! Now, it's time to put down all that COMFORT FOOD of mine, so I can begin living healthy...

I have lost the "Valerie" I was born to be, and have let myself become molded into a BIGGER version and of course an UNHAPPY version of the real "Valerie" and I don't want to be the molded into version anymore... I wan t to find the "Valerie" that I was I was born to be once again... I knew I was getting bigger, when the clothes were getting tighter and then of course I had to buy bigger sizes, but I guess I was in denial that I was this BIG!!!

I always say to myself I will start my healthy way of living tomorrow, it's ALWAYS tomorrow... I have come to realize that if I don't do something now about my health, TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME!!!

I work from home, so I don't get out much - but that definitely has to change... I will have to make it a rule to get at least 60 minutes of calorie burning activity on a daily basis... I want to be able to run around with my children... I want to be here when they grow up... NO MORE EXCUSES!!!

Good Luck to everyone!!!

    The upcoming Mother’s Day provides a perfect opportunity to the women in my life. Have you ever noticed that women take care of others before they care for themselves? I am sure that this has something to do with biological functions, probably ingrained into our caring behaviors as children, but you need not have had a child to be a caring and loving woman and thus “mother others!”

    Therefore, I wanted to express my appreciation for you in my life. Thank you for being you!

    So often I meet women who say I am just a homemaker. Wow, that is a full time job in itself. Then I meet women who work one or two full time jobs, one being a homemaker, as well. It amazes me to see so many women who raise a family, cook, clean, and provide a shoulder to lean on . . . you are all SUPERWOMEN!! So I want to remind you to love how special you are to those around you. You are fantastic that you are balancing and juggling so many things at the same time. You are powerful and strong, you can become whatever you want, and you can say it with conviction!
    Thank you for being you!
