I have had a weight problem most of my life and would love to lose back down to 130 pounds, which is an ideal weight for me, but realistically, I will probably never reach that goal. I would be thrilled with 150 lbs.

My weight has gone up and down most of my life, but it has gotten out of control in the past 12 years.

I have 2 children, Brent 31 and Brittany 22, a 12 year old grandson, Blaze, and a 7 year old granddaughter, Ashton......we lost her identical twin on June 22, 2008. Emily is gone but will always be in my heart.

June a year ago I was diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy and fibromaylgia. I have lost the ability to do the things I love. I am no longer able to ride or care for the horses that I love so much, I no longer cook, garden, can foods, sew, or walk. I am very limited in mobility and cannot lift weights. I can go to the YMCA and move around in the water, but cannot really swim. Weight loss is a struggle. But I am back and am going to try. I have lost a lot but the most important thing that I still have is my family and they are my heart. Mostly, I want to be around to watch my grandchildren grow up and have children of their own!

I have too many junk food junkies around me and that makes it hard to eat right. I need to have people that understand what I am going through, are supportive, and will not bringing junk food around me. There is no better motivation than sharing this journey with people who are there to support you and let you support them. I never want to weigh 360 lbs. again!
