So I've ridiculed myself, joining the club of those that have ridiculed me about my struggles and failures. Now it's time to accept the imperfections and do the best that I can with the tools that I have at my disposal.

Member Since: 11/21/2013

Fitness Minutes: 1,701

My Goals:
Lose 50 lbs. by May of 2017.
Return to writing toward healthier habits. Build my self-esteem. Fall in love with me!

My Program:
Exercise, nutrition tracking, and joining groups based on my needs and interests.

Personal Information:
I am a Mom to five amazing children, two of which are grown and US Marines. The others are pulling all As in school! Woohoo! Most importantly, I am Laura, a single woman learning to love herself.

Now that we spoke of what I am, let's talk about what I have, but is not a direct reflection of who I am. I have type 2 Diabetes, bipolar, depression, general anxiety, high cholesterol, and neuropathy.

I am trying to bring all of these unfortunates under control with exercise and diet. Though I will never be a day without having to take some form of medication, many of my physical issues are caused by my weight, which has a direct effect on my mental status. So, I am working my butt and other fat parts off to reduce the amount of meds I need and to fall in love with myself again!

Other Information:
Top Gun and Back Draft used to be my favorites, but Pitch Perfect stole the show!

I love to write and genealogy research is close to my heart as well.

I miss my Mom in Heaven, and my Dad that lives 800 miles away.
