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!

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 30 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! :)

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my latest blog. The Cortisone shot is working wonders and it's so much easier getting around now. I just got done working in the flower garden for 2 hrs at least with no knee pain. Wow, so hard to believe and I'm hoping too that it will work for as long as possible. Thanks you for your love and care. I think of you so often too with love and care for you. Take good care of yourself and I'll try to too. emoticon emoticon Karen emoticon

ps.....I love your page too! Periwinkle is one of my favorite colors! You have a beautiful color combination!

Hi Teri, I am thinking of you as well. I am hanging in, the Lord is so good, and I am so grateful. I started cleaning up my diet in spite of the steroids, and I had headaches all week because of it, but I'm keeping on! I know I will feel better eventually, and I must keep trying. I pray you have a great week, please take care, know that I am also thinking of you. xo
