I lost my job at the thrift store and am not working now as I am too depressed to do anything. I am living in Minnesota now and working at a thrift store. I need to find other work as this is only part time. I enjoyed helping with my great nieces for the time I had with them. I will only go back to nannying if I find a perfect job for me. I worked as a nanny for over twenty years. My niece lives in the Metairie part of New Orleans. My baby work ended sooner than planned, and I am helping with the babies grandmother, my sister Mary,who has memory loss. I was born in Los Angeles and left there when I was 16 years old. I have lived in Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Maryland, Virgina, DC, Minnesota and Puerto Rico. I was one of twelve children from the same two parents, all single births. There are ten of us still alive now. I have more family than I like to count! One more sister died, so their are only nine of us left.

My Goals:
155 is my next goal.
150, 145, 140, 135 and 130 to see if that is the place I want to be!

My Program:
I do alternate-day dieting. I am fasting three days a week.

Personal Information:
My name is Monica. I am going back to nanny work but for my family this time. My niece has twins and needs help so I am happy to do what I can for them. That is done and I am helping my sister that has Alzheimer's and my Mother who is 88 was trying to help her son to do it all. I moved to Minnesota and tried college for second time but ran out of Federal funding before I could graduate with a Bachlors degree! I am now suffering from mental health issues that make healthy eating harder than before!

Other Information:
I am Roman Catholic. I pray every day and try to always be a good Christian. My Birthday is May, 28, 1957 so I will be 60 this coming birthday 2017

    COngratulations for starting the year strong and being in the top 5 for team fitness minutes.

    I think self-discipline is something, it's like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. Daniel Goldstein

    Thank you for your comment. I did have to chuckle when you said your head wasn't working very good.....mine is frequently like that. Where in MN do you live? I live near Redwood Falls.

    It took me the longest time to finally take my spiralizer out of the box! 😁
