This Is Not a Diet - This Is Your Life!

I am a child welfare professional by day, medieval re-enactor some weekends, and lead singer in two bands! I am the mother of three - two sons by birth and a daughter that I had the honor of adopting from foster care when she was a teenager. They are all adults now.

I am a child welfare professional by day, medieval re-enactor some weekends, and lead singer in two bands! I am the mother of three - two sons by birth and a daughter that I had the honor of adopting from foster care when she was a teenager. They are all adults now. I have been divorced since 2003 and finally have met the guy who I believe is the love of my life. I have been battling compulsive overeating and being overweight all of my life. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2001, but gained back most of the weight I lost. I have tried OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN to develop healthy habits and keep them. I don't know why but I always went back to my old habits of eating and isolating. I am happy to report that since March 2012, I have been incorporating those habits almost daily. I have lost about 100 pounds in the last year. I want to lose more, but I don't focus on numbers. I just keep living a healthy lifestyle and I will "let the hips fall where they may!"

Fitness Minutes: 17,954

My Goals:
Although I hope to lose weight, my main goal is true LIFESTYLE changes: eating right, exercising daily, and natural management of depression and anxiety.

My Program:
Limiting portions, substituting healthier choices in foods, cutting out sugar, fat and carbs (my trigger food is carbs), exercising daily, taking my vitamins and drinking 8 glasses of water.

Personal Information:
I am a child welfare professional living and working in Raleigh, NC. I have 3 adult children - Jared, in the US Army; Joshua, living at home and working in retail, also dealing with morbid obesity; and Tiffany, whom I adopted when she was almost 15 from the foster care system. I am in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and love history!

Other Information:
I've been divorced since 2003 and enjoy dating. I would love to find another person to celebrate life with, but I'm also perfectly happy with myself as well.

I love that you have stayed single since 2003 and dated. If I could live my life over, I'd never have been married, but worked and saved my own money, and dated lots of different men and went on trips to see places in the world.
