Hi! I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba and I'm hoping to find some on-line support and friends to walk with me through this weight loss/healthy living journey.

I am married with 5 children-- 2 that I made (14 year old girl & 18 year old boy), 1 step son (19 year old), and 2 foster daughters from Ethiopia (20 & 22 years old).

Any suggestions and help will be welcomed.

April 20/08 - I just posted some new pics
May 7/08 - my sister (dmmomof2) joined... yaay!
June 19/08 - not much motivation lately... gained 3 pounds (back to 155)
January 10/10 - checked in for the first time in a long time... stayed the same (still 155)
April 1/10 - just started working out with a trainer and going to zumba classes once a week
October 1/10 - had a really rough summer because of a marriage separation... my weight was stable at 150-155... started yoga and exercise classes again... still working on controlling my bad eating behaviours
February 21/10 - back together with hubby after 3 month separation... did nothing for my health (stress, weight gain...) but I'm back on track! Going to GoodLife Fitness 4 times a week. Set a goal to walk/jog/run the Manitoba Marathon in June (10k). Starting weight at the beginning of Feb. was 167, as of today I am 161. Goal = 140 by June 30th.

My Goals:
My primary goal is to get healthy. I have spent a good portion of the last 5 years feeling unwell.

Of course, weight loss is my goal, but the health benefits aremost important to me, too.

My Program:
March, 2008 - I'm eating much healthier but I have yet to get into an excercise routine... that's why I'm here!

As of 4/1/08: I started walking every day and working out with home exercise videos and SP videos. My favourite is the jump rope video by Coach Nicole!

5/15/08: Just got my Turbo Jam DVDs so now I'm working out to those! Whew... not easy, but the end results will be worth it.

June 19/08: Motivation low... will not give up though!

March, 2010: Began a 6-week program with a trainer.

Oct 1/10: Workout a few times a week... still need to practice better eating habits.

Feb. 1/11: Started new year nearly 20 lbs heavier than I was 6 months ago. Eek! Back on track at the gym 4x/week.

Personal Information:
I'm Annette, I'm married with 5 children. We live in Winnipeg, Manitoba... I am a VERY proud Canadian!

Other Information:
I'm a high school teacher and I go to university part-time. I love reading and watching movies and hanging out with my best friend -- my sister (dmmomof2) -- and my children. I can't say I LOVE working out, but I'm doing it 4x/week so that I can run a 5k in June, 2011.
