So here it is. Age 43 and 1/2!!!! Heaviest I have EVER been in my life. Pre-menopause and depression are kicking in. Been fighting depression for about a decade now. Good days and bad days. Thinking heavily that lifesyle plays a part - sooooo - joined the gym and am making a commited effort when it comes to the foods I choose. It's time and I am ready.

My husband I enjoy going camping at the dunes. We ride ATV's, dirt bikes, rails, and RZR's. We also have two dogs - a light hearted gentle giant black lab named Tucker and a strong willed disobidient Frenchie named Daphne. They are so much fun and have so much personality.

We have no children. By choice. I never had an inkling to become a Mom. My relashonship with my Mom was not so great and I can see so much of her in myself that I chose to not continue the chain so to speak. I have no to little patience for children. I do however, LOVE LOVE LOVE my twin nephews who are 8 years old this year! Can't explain it - I just don't want to be around kids all the time and have them living in my house. Everyone I know who has kids - I love their kids and the time we share, but I also love to go home without them.

We purchased a fixer upper house a few years back and are about 1/2 way through with the "master plan' I love working on the house and making plans and decisions about what we are doing. My husband and I are both commited to it being our forever house so we're making it our own with no concerns about resale or anything. It's kind of nice to do it this way.

Looking for buddies to share this journey with me. I get basically no support or motivation at home or work or from my friends. They just don't realize how hard it is for me sometimes and think ignoring it means it's not real.

Hoping this is succesful and that FatSecret will be a game changing tool for me along the way.
