Life has thrown me lots of hoops to jump over but by the grace of God I can do this with a smile on my face and a positive attitude that all will be well in the end. I tore my ACL in June 2011 just when I was starting to run my first 5k's and feeling better about myself. I added 50 pounds during and directly after recovery. I still cannot handle the impact of running with that knee to this day. Then in December 2013 I had my whole thyroid removed, this also has proved harsh on my weight and added more weight to my body. It's been a struggle and I'm ready to take control back. I really feel like I've just given up and haven't cared, and BOY DOES IT SHOW!!!

Praying that the Lord can show me something positive in each day that will make me WANT to eat right and exercise and help me fulfill my NEED to do this. I am not looking for a quick fix as I know its taken years to put it on and I would be happy to get it off in half the time it took to put it on.

Friend me if your in the same boat!!

My Goals:
I want to stay on track so I'm setting short term goals. I want to lose 5 to 8 lbs a month. I'm hoping that once I get into the groove of working out and eating right the weight will melt off. I've done this before... I lost 50 pounds two years ago but things happened and I gained it ALL back, plus some. I want to take it off again and keep it off.

My Program:
I plan on tracking my intake with Spark People to become more aware of my portions. I am total proof that this is the real ticket to weight loss. I lost 50 pounds by faithfully recording my nutrition.. then.. I stopped and gained 25 of that back within 6 months. This is an accountability thing for me. Write it down and own it!!!

I am NOT going to put a number of pounds I want to lose this year down.. NOPE, instead I'm going to be more generic and say that I want to make and take time for ME. By doing this, I KNOW that the pounds will come off and I will be happier than I am right now.

Personal Information:
Wife to Tom for 20 years. Mom to 5 beautiful children. Two girls ages 18 and 14 and three boys ages 12 and 10 year old identical twins. They certainly keep me going!
