My husband and I got married in 1986 and have 3 beautiful children. We have a great life because we have a great relationship. However, it's not always been roses... this last year I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease and spent a lot of time getting tested, having flare ups that incapacitated me for days and damaged my eyesight. We had to make some tough decisions. I demoted myself at work so that I won't have to travel any more (that was a huge cause of my disease flare ups) and we are selling our beloved motorcycle. It makes me very sad to think of not taking long trips with my husband on the bike any more. We really enjoyed the escape but I'm sure God has other plans for us. I'm thankful that I still have a job and I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family and not having to miss so much as I was always gone for work. Our youngest is graduating from high school this year. Our daughter got engaged on New Year's Eve and our oldest son was accepted into graduate school. I have many reasons to be thankful and feel very blessed - now I just need to get this weight off!

My Goals:
To lose enough weight to feel comfortable in my clothes and not be self conscious all the time.


My Program:
Since being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease I haven't found the right combination of exercise and diet that will work for me... still a matter of trial and error with the meds I'm on.

    Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out.
