For several years now I have been focused on caring for my child who was diagnosed with T-cell ALL in 2014. Soon he will be past the one year mark of remission. It's awesome to me that he survived, and is now thriving. Along the path through my child's hell on earth known to too many of us as cancer, I picked up some wonderful nutritional habits that I am incorporating into my own plan to heal. That, along with my new exercise regime, and I can't lose. I finally feel that I have everything I need to be a success at this weight loss thing. Cheers! to the new me.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 132 pounds, lower my triglycerides, improve my sleep, lower my visceral fat levels, and heal my back.

My Program:
* to track my diet and exercise daily.
* to eat lots of vegetables, protein, nuts, and seeds.
* to limit my carb's
* to maintain my reduced intake of fatty cholesterol.
* to reduce my sugar intake (one sweet dessert per. week)
* to practice portion control and keep my calories in check.

Personal Information:
I have been away for a long time. I have recently returned to try and get my weight headed in the right direction. After several failures, I have decided that enough is enough. I made a series of bad choices that rocketed my weight up to an unbelievable 321 pounds. My first mistake was in making the conscious decision to stop trying to lose weight. I had convinced myself that I gain more weight each time I tried. With each failure came a spiraling vortex of shame and guilt. Instead of telling myself to try again, I told myself that each failure solidified my idea of who I was, and that was a failure. If I could go back, I would say, at least you are still trying. Hang in there. Don't give up. It will be worth it...
