following: LuC2's own diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week
Height: 5'2" -- Age 42. Wife to one, mom to two (sons 16 and 9), sister to three, business owner of one (marketing/business analysis firm). Always been chubby and always worn a lot of hats. And for most of my life, I have let those busy hats define my days. I lost about 60 lbs as a young woman in my early 20's -- the right way (diet/exercise). But life (love, marriage, kids, work) allowed me an easy path to put self on the back row. Now, I refuse to get any heavier or buy a larger dress size. I love clothes, shoes and makeup but it is not as much fun anymore at the "ms. plus" stores. I want each of my sons to enjoy his life and not be encumbered by weight (I was a chubby kid, so I know). They have missed out on DisneyWorld because I didn't think I'd fit in those darned spinning teacups! I'm finally researching food + nutrition and am ready to do something for me -- my health and to help secure a long life of quality years. My family is learning too and making changes with me, but it doesn't matter whether they continue...I must. If you're serious about getting your rear in gear, JOIN ME and let's laugh along the way!
