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. :-)

    Thank you for checking in on me! This diet is really tough, but its so rewarding to see the benefits every morning! Weight loss is so time and life consuming!!! I hope you're doing well with your diet! Looks like you're going on vacation very soon! I have a ways to go before I go in October, but it makes it easier to get up in the morning just counting down the days!!! Have a terrific time and dont think about dieting while you're sitting at the beach!!!
