My Story:
I am the single mom of four kids that keep life pretty interesting. I have 2 girls (ages 21 & 16) and 2 boys (ages 18 & 13). All still live at home with me and our 2 cats and 1 dog...of which the cats rule the roost.

I've yo-yo'd on my weight since I was a teen. Lost 80 lbs once, gained all of it back when pregnant plus some, lost 130 lbs and kept it off for about 5 years. Unfortunately, I gained almost all of that back when I moved away from my family and friends.

Now I'm on the road to recovery for good. Learning how to eat right, exercise and change my lifestyle instead of looking for a quick fix. I started my own women's fitness group that has really helped! We get together several times a week to walk or play a sport of some type.

So far I'm down over 50 lbs in 9 months. I have another 70 lbs I'd still like to lose and know it will happen naturally with this new life I've created for myself.
