I am 46 years old and a nurse at Mayo Clinic. I recently got remarried and it seems that the happier I am, the more weight I gain. Coming from a Polish family, nothing says I love you more than a huge high carb fat laden meal to be topped off by a nice big homemade dessert so imagine my dilemma here!
I have a bad back from an injury 10 years ago so I really need to lose weight to feel better health wise and to look better as well. I finally just got to the point where I am really uncomfortable in my own body so I knew I had to take charge and make some changes.
Luckily for me, I found this website. I need the fellowship and encouragement of others in the same predicament. I think the Weight Watchers meetings are a great concept for accountability and support but with my crazy work schedule I cannot commit to those meetings so I am hoping that this program will fulfill that need.
On a personal note, I live on a farm. I keep bees, have 2 parrots, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I love to quilt and garden. I have a strong faith in God and while I believe God wants me to be healthy and happy, I think He also wants me to get off my butt and do something about it and look to Him for guidance.
Blessings to all who are on this same journey.
1/1/2013- I am restarting in Induction after falling off the wagon here. I need all the support and prayers that anyone has to offer. Here I go again!
