I am a 47 year old Texas woman. I love to read, dance research,and talk to friends. I am a mom of 4 and wife to a great guy and my best friend(cliched but true) for 18 years. I teach at home, and so food is sadly available at all times. I have a big year coming up that inculdes large family gatherings/events including my oldest child's graduation. I want to be able to focus on something other than what I am wearing..or can wear . It has been 17 years now that I have been overweight. I am making this change so that I can embrace the next phase of life in a healthy positive way. I was just informed that I have had a medically low thyroid test for about four years. Looking forward to seeing if increasing thyroid hormone will help on this a journey.

How bad is Crystal Lite?
Not sure, but think it depends on the person. There is a crystal light version that uses a different sweetener than aspartame..can't remember which one it is. I think it has the word fitness in it.
