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 have lost 22 pounds but it is just he beginning. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy ...

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!

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! :)

Fitness is like marriage
You can't cheat on it, and expect it to work.

I run.....
I'm slower than a herd of turtles,
stampeding through peanut butter...
But...I run

Hope's been back home for a couple of hours now and having a good rest on the couch with me. Likes to stay close. Is still some groggy, but that's to be expected. Thanks again for your loving kindness. Just like you to be that way! Hugs, Karen
