Why does my page look different?
I as much as anyone (if not more being a sports reporter) understand the dynamics of team spirit. No matter how much talent one athlete has, a team crashes if the team can't come together and work together and capitalize on each other's strengths.
Why am I sharing that? Well, probably one of the most effective factors in my journey to health has been joining in on the biggest loser challenge and becoming part of a team. I'm still trying to be a better me and learning how to encourage and support my team mates. But this is one team I LOVE being part of!!!
Sure, an interteam challenge is the motivation behind the changes to my page & profile pic...but I am LOVING my team experience!!

Let me share a little now & then about myself....

I went to my husband's 20 year class reunion last night. WOW! I said, you graduated with a lot of OLD people. Next year, is my 20th year out of high school. I realized I look old too. I've made friends with my fat but its time that part of it move on and off of me. I need a mantra. GET UP AND DO IT!

I try to get as much exercise in my day as I can fit. Its tough being a mom to two active boys but I know it is important. I spend a whole lot less time in my comfy chair. I've been cooking dinner at home more often than not. We're all eating more fruits and veggies. Life is GOOD! And that my friends is more than just a tshirt logo....
