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. Now I find myself at 52, at my highest weight ever. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy and there for them. I'm ready, I can do this...once and for all!

My Program:

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 31 years and have two awesome kids, Dane 28 and Lindsay 24. I am truly blessed!

Other Information:
I love 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! :)

#2 for some reason, when l try it takes me to my posts but doesn't give me a way to write. I'm finally off my plateau, down 42 pounds now. It took 2 months! Since it's my lifestyle, it didn't matter to me because my insides are improving.

If every morning, You can find a reason to say,
“Yes, it’s going to be a beautiful day.”
And every day, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it is a beautiful day.”
And every night, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it was a beautiful day.”
Then one day, You’ll look back and easily say,
“Yes...it was a beautiful life.”

~~~~~I am """WONDER WOMAN"""~~~~~

~~I wonder where I left my keys,
~~~I wonder how I put on weight,
~~~~I wonder where my money went,
~~~~~I wonder where I put my phone.
~~~~~~I often "wonder" why I "wonder".
