My name is TenderT1965 and I am a "carbaholic". My desire for cake, pie, cookies, etc. is beyond extreme. Staying "carb sober" has been a battle that I have been fighting for so many years that I can't even count. The bottom line is that I need to get fit and stay fit for me and my son's future. Over the years, I have been up and down in weight. I have battled breast cancer and am now an 11 yr. survivor. I know I can and will achieve this goal. Deep down I know what I have to do.

There has never been a better time than right now!

I am 5'9" tall, and my goal is 189 lbs. which I haven't seen since 1986. My super-duper-ultimate happier-than-ever goal is 175 lbs. which I haven't seen since my senior year in high school.

When I stay focused on FatSecret, my attitude about food is good. I am making NEW LIFESTYLE choices and, with FatSecret I know, before hand, if my choices will be good or bad for me.

I am taking it one day at a time (my right foot in front of my left foot). I'm in no real hurry, but I'll keep clicking my heals, just in case that works.


1) Being healthy enough to BELIEVE & KNOW that I'll remain cancer free.
2) Walking without panting.
3) Running with my dog.
4) Keeping up with my 13 yr. old.
5) Not being overlooked when I'm out with my friends (skinny heifers).
6) Shopping off the rack in ANY STORE.
7) Dating and possibly finding Mr. Right when my son is older and moves out (just a few more years).
8) Sitting, comfortably, in an airplane seat (heck, any seat) without rubbing hips with the person next to me.
9) Helping others who are where I once was (mentally, physically) with regards to weight.
10) Running my first marathon (2014 L.A. Marathon).

Jenju, I make beens (via crockpot) monthly I soak them for about 24 hrs. and cook them for about 7-8 hrs. on low. I usually make two bags at a time. My son wont eat them, so it last me a really long time. I take them into work and feed a few people along the way. I cook them up, freeze them in individual containers and grab and go on days when I'm not sure what I want or just don't have anything else. I use to make them with meat, but now I make them plain (without meat) and I add lib day by day (depending on how I feel that day or week). It's great protein, good carbs, and very filling. Good luck.

Today is a great day!
I can't imagine what you must have been going through before your son's surgery, but I'm glad everything went well for him, and I'm glad that you are now able to breathe.
