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: 17,914

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.
