12/31/15 - I'm back again. So much has happened in the last 2 yrs that has caused me to be depressed, feel like I just didn't have the will or strength to do the work it takes to make a better me. For the last couple months I am finally feeling more like my old self. It;s been a struggle, and this Christmas was the best I have had in 4 yrs. Over the last 2 yrs I have gained back 46 of the 50 pounds I had lost. And boy am I feeling the bad effects of it!! It;s time to work at getting me back on track to a healthier me!!!

Personal Information:
I am from and live in western North Carolina, near Asheville. I have 3 kids and 3 grand children. I have been a nurse for 30 years. And even tho for years I have educated many patients on how to be and live healthier, I have not followed my own advice. I'm tired of being so fat that I am uncomfortable in my own skin, tired of having a hard time finding clothes that look nice, fit good, and feel good to wear! ! want to be healthy, more fit, to be able to go on a hike, or ride amusement rides, just plain walk around town without feeling like I am too fat to do all the things I want to! And even tho this site says I have been a member since May of 2011, I only used it consistently for a short time. I need to get serious about this and stay consistent!

Other Information:
I love reading, working in my yard, doing anything with my kids / grand kids, listening to live music, going to the casino now and then, playing spades and backgammon. I'm not a big TV sports person, but I like going to sporting events in person. I like to cook, go on long drives, sight see, take trips. I love going to church and getting as close to my Savior as I can. Country , gospel and contemporary christian are my favorite music types. But I enjoy some rock, hip hop ect too. I like All kinds of movies.
