I am a 40-something year old wife to a wonderful husband and mother of 3 awesome children. I've been in this weight loss battle since '98, but I feel like I can reach my goals this time. I don't plan to give up until I reach success. I'm well on my way, and I'll get there with God's help.

January 2016
My weight has been on the incline for several years now. Just recently, the scale tipped at 203. I have h pylori for the second time. This was my wake up call. I have cut back on sugar and fried foods, and focusing on drinks that heal my gut (ginger tea, kombucha tea, water). Since that day in December, I have lost 11 pounds. I am so grateful to God. I am so glad I didn't give up the fight.

February 2016
I have been doing the Whole 30 for 11 days. I did great, until, while on an outing, I was forced to eat foods off of my plan. Since the Whole 30 requires you to start over, and I know this is not a good time for me to start over, I am reworking my plan to another shade of Paleo. I can't stop now, though. I am 15 pounds down!

My Goals:
Right now, I would be so thrilled if I could just go down a size in pants. I'll update this once that goal is accomplished.

My Program:
Right now, I have recently joined a 21 day challenge by Healthy by Design. It is a Christian centered program. I am also starting another green smoothie cleanse, followed by a plan to heal my gastritis. As long as I hold on to God's hand, I will eventually meet my goals. January 2018

Personal Information:
Proud Texan (born and raised)

Other Information:
I am an avid reader, and I love to write in my spare time. Bowling is a favorite family activity that we indulge in as often as we can. But most of all, I love to spend time with family and friends, doing whatever makes us happy at that time.
