original page wording 1-31-11: I have been overweight for most of my life. I have been on many diets that have helped me lose weight, I just haven't been too great at keeping it off. I am a mom of 2 active kids ages 9 and 7. I have decided that it's ok to make myself a priority and not feel guilty about it. I'm ready to be healthy, lose the weight and be active with my family.

Thank you so much for adding me as a friend as well! I just took the time to look at all your pics and you are such an inspiration to me!! My 130 lbs that i need to lose in total can seem like a HuGe mountain to climb, but I know that if I stay faithful and work hard that it IS possible! Thanks again for being so encouraging to me. emoticon emoticon

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
