I'm Tracy and my husband and I have a 5 kids with ages 4, 12, 13, 14, & 16. They keep me busy...but apparently not quite busy enough to keep me from eating!!! LOL

I woke up in January and thought to myself "Enough is enough!" I want to be healthier. I want to have the physical ability to keep up with my busy kids. I want to be able to mount my horses from the ground and not worry about what will happen when my fat ass hits the ground if I fall!! :-D

So It's time for a change and the change is in me. My initial goal was to lose 25 pounds (goal met!!). Then I'd like to set a new goal for another 25 pounds. In a perfect world I'd like to lose 85 - 100 pounds. In the real world 50-60 pounds will be enough to make me feel healthier and fitter.

So wish me luck on my journey. I never thought this was a good thing...but I'm looking forward to being a LOSER!!! :-)

My Goals:
Mini Goal #1: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #2: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #3: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #4: 25 pounds

Total Goal: 100 Pounds

My Program:
Mostly I want to learn to eat appropriately and figure out how to not just apply it while I'm chasing goals...but for a life time.

During the spring, summer, and fall I am very active with my horses. Exercising them, riding them, stringing fences, mucking stalls, putting up hay, etc. But the winter is proving to be long and inactive this year. :-(

I finally started working out this winter. I started with a treadmill and have graduated to an elliptical and a stationary bike. What a difference it makes!!! :-)

Personal Information:
I am Tracy and my family and I live in northern NY. My husband and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this fall. He is an amazing and supportive man.

We are foster parents and all of our children came to our families via adoption from foster care. My oldest 4 children came to us as school aged children and have have their own unique challenges. My youngest arrived in our hearts at a mere 3 days old and has been a joy and is a challenge in different ways. :-)

    You questioned what the HCG protocol was...Its a diet that was created between 1940-1970 by a physician named Dr Simeons. Basically you take HCG either in shot or sublingual and follow a strict 500 calorie diet. We have a group on SPARKPEOPLE if you want to get the full details. Its absolutely wonderful. You weigh in daily and lose weight daily. As you can see I've lost 8.2 lbs in 9 days. First time in my life I can say I don't feel hungry while dieting and I feel so much better. Anyways, Thank you for your comments on my page! Congrats on your weight lost....

    Thanks Kris. I had already lost 5 or 6 pounds before I joined this group so I'm pretty stoked!! All together 29.8 pounds lighter than when I started. :-) I have been having pretty good luck staying within calories and have discovered and fallen in love with the Hostess 100 calories cupcakes and twinkies.

    Just over 3 weeks...ahhhhh...the sweet sound of the ocean lulling us as we sit on our balcony. How sweet it will be!!!
