Hi, I am Laura and the fluff ball in the picture is Jake. He was my walking buddy but is now becoming my running buddy! He is the best, very flexible and never gets tired and is always ready to go or stop when I am! LOL!

I am also a mother to three sweet children ages 11, 9 and 5. We also have a house & backyard full of animals! In the backyard area we have 5 chickens (1-rooster 4-hens), 2 goats w/their kid. Inside the house there are 2 kittens, 2 puppy-dogs and a canary. OH! and the MOST important my hubby!

I had always been thin ... that is until after three children or was it turning 40 four years ago that did me in??? LOL It really doesnt matter, with Gods grace I am not going to let the weight stay on if I can discipline myself to eat right and exercise like I used to when I was younger, before hubby and children.

I look forward to getting all my pictures loaded and to really get started here! That is one of my goals for January!

Be Blessed in all you do today!
and Thanks! for visting my sparkpage! : )

    Hi Laura, I am new to this group ands from my search it seems you also live in FL. I live in Valrico which is just outside of Brandon. Do you live anywhere near that. I am looking for a Buddy that can motivate me and I can motivate them. Let me no if you are interested. I have about 30lbs to lose.

    Yeah, Laura! Thanks for adding me as a friend and congrats on figuring it out. Sorry I wasn't able to respond earlier but I wasn't on the computer much this weekend.
    I've learned that if I exercise and keep moving most of the time plus eating relatively healthy that the weight does come off. I am sure that there will be plateaus but for now I am happy that I am at the lightest weight I have been in years.

    Blessings to you and all the best in 2007!

    P.S. No word from Conrad yet - do you think that I should e-mail him again? We are starting a BLC with our neighbors for $ so even if he doesn't respond, I will still have extra motivation.
