Once and For All!

6/14/13 Day 1 - I've been overweight since the age of 11. I gained 25 pounds as a kid in the 5th grade when my parents divorced. 7 years of stress and unhappiness followed and overeating became a lifelong habit and way to cure stress and numb pain...so I thought. All along it only created more. At the age of 51, I reached my highest weight ever. Thankfully at 53, I am back in the game and losing again. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy and there ...

What Losing Weight Will Do For ME
* Gain confidence and
self-esteem!
* Look better!
* Feel better!

* More energy!

My Program:
I re-started Spark in June 2013. Right now I am just keeping my calories in range. I am TRYING incorporate exercise and am planning to hop on my treadmill now that I moved it to the new den and it won't be used as a closet anymore!!

Personal Information:
My name is Teri ~ I live on the west coast of the state of Washington, in the beautiful Pacific NW. We live 30 miles from the beach and go at every opportunity, it's my favorite thing! I've been married to my wonderful DH 32 years and have two awesome kids, Dane 29 and Lindsay 25. I am truly blessed!

Other Information:
I love the beach, music, interior decorating, gardening, anything artistic and kitties!

I could watch DIY network and HGTV all day long!

I love going to concerts and go as often as I can.

Did I say I LOVE THE BEACH! :)
