Wow! I didn't even realize how big I was. Me at 240. Forty four pounds ago.

Me forty five pounds less. Still a ways to go, but I'm gonna get there!

Introduction...Hmm...Okay. I'm Lori, a fifty year old mother and stepmother of nine children, grandmother of seven. Like many of us I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. This left me with some pretty huge self-esteem issues that I fight with to this day.

It is my goal to take this journey one step at a time. Maybe then I will actually see the completion of it rather than a gung-ho start leading to another failed attempt.

That said, I warn you of major weirdness going on in here. Humor has gotten me through a lot and I am working on the fine art of... odd. I have given up trying to explain why something is funny to me. It just is. Thank you. Working in the customer service industry will do that to you, and I have been here a long, LONG time. Ya gotta laugh folks!

Oh, and I like long walks on the beach in the rain.

And kittens.

My Goals:
Goals, goals...let's see. Of course I would like to be able to lose the weight that has plagued me for years, but I really need to become healthier and a happier person. I have abused my poor body for a very long time. Some goals I have actually realized. I quit drinking, (HUGE), started dealing with my periods of depression in a more pro-active way. Stopped internalizing every slight, every self pronounced flaw, and I am trying to learn to accept myself as I would accept others, warts and all. Got to shoot for more activity. Making myself exercise is a big problem. I realize however, that I must. If nothing else, so that I may be able to make my children's life miserable for as long as possible. Lol!

My Program:
My job forces me to be active to a large degree. However, my body is accustomed to this so I must become more purposefully active. I have started walking at least 3 days a week. As this becomes easier I shall try to incorporate strength training. I have started to introduce more fresh vegatbles and fruit into my diet along with healthy fats. Baby steps.

Personal Information:
I'm Lori. From Texas. Land of weird weather and strange (but cool) people.

Other Information:
Humor has gotten me through a lot in this life. My humor might be a little off kilter sometimes, but I can usually get a laugh out of someone, eventually. If not, well, you're just an old poopie face. (Nothin' but love for ya!) Lol!
