Hello. My name is Jade and I live in South Dakota. I’m 26 years old with a lovely husband and two girls, a 6 and a 2 year old. We want to have more kids but in our lives right now its just not a good time. I had almost died twice in Sept. 07' I had West Nile and spinal meningitis. I was in the hospital for a few weeks. I was told I have to wait little over a year to try again, so none of the side effects does not hurt the baby. Well we tried and got a beautiful baby girl in 08' Aaliyah Rose! Then my mother had a cancer scare and had to have surgery, I had to take care of her for 2 months till she healed. She had to go back into surgery to try to fix things but that didn't go well at all. So now this spring 2011 3rd time is a charm, I hope.I will have to help her heal then too and take care of my father. Then I found out my father has Cancer again (second time). He is going through chemo and is about done, it is very hard on him but he will make it. Along with the Cancer is his Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease, and Dementia. It is not easy to do all of it. So with that said I have a lot of stress to deal with and I have been struggling with my weight for 8 years now and I have become a person who I dislike. I use to be energetic, outgoing, confident woman. Now I’m scared to go out into the social scene, my self esteem is really low. I just feel very unattractive. I came to SP for help to try and lose weight. No not try, I WILL lose the weight. I AM determined this time and nothing, not even junk food get in my way of achieving my goals!! I will beat this curse.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose this weight so I am there for my children (and more to come). I don't want to be a mother that can't go and play outside with her kids. I want to be an active, motivated mother . I also have health problems in my family history that I do not want to get.

*First Mini Goal*
Get to 200lbs.

My Program:
Well for starters I have completely stopped smoking. Quit date Nov.06'

I am starting the Medifast Program I have not received my food yet, but I am very excited!!

I will be eating close to 1000 cal. a day.

Short walks to start off with, not really suppose to do anything for the first 3 weeks on the plan.

I drink A LOT of water, 64+ glasses.

Personal Information:
My name is Jade, I live in South Dakota. I was born in Hawaii (I want to go back) I am a stay at home mother. I love animals (who don't) We live on a farm 20 acres I have dogs (5 Great Danes), 6 horses (2 of them are mini horses), And I have some pygmy goats too:) My favorite TV show is True Blood on HBO!

    Hi Jade. Welcome to the Great Dane lovers team. I am Nic and I am the team founder. What a beautiful family! I look forward to getting to know you better and talk dogs and horses with you.

    I have one great dane, Kona. She is the black dane in the team picture. I also have a Mini Aussie, Chuey. I am a horse trainer and I have been working with horses my whole life. I can talk horses and dogs all day! (I tend to drive people nuts with it!)

    Congrats on your weight loss. You are doing great!

    Good luck on your weight loss journey. Stop by and post with the team as often as you can. And let us know if you get some pictures of your dogs and horses posted.

    Take care!
