Hello all,

Here goes my Bio

I am 44 yrs old & have been the mid 200's for many many yrs. I have been married to my best friend for 19 years valentines day 2015. We have 1 daughter, and I have 3 step children, all wonderful and all happy :) I am finishing up my masters degree & will be pursuing my PhD. I am self employed which makes my time very flexible.

I still manage to keep somewhat active which is the only reason I am on the healthier side right now, for now. I ride horses (used to ride competitively, would love to get back there), I walk, ride bike, use my water rower & try to jog ;) I've had animals all my life so I have always kept busy :) I live in central Orlando, FL & have complete access to Universal Studios daily (parks and citywalk) so I use that as my own personal gym. I am very lucky I can do that, and I love it. I drive my husband into work sometimes & then wait until he is done which means I am at the park all day long sometimes, good place to get walking & stairs in & I'm even finding great healthy choices for food there as well so I am not eating park food. :)

I started LCHF lifestyle change March 21, 2015. Lost 5.5 lbs the first 6 1/2 days being good. So going to stick with this plan and see where it takes me. :) I do not take any daily prescription pills. I see the dr and have my blood work done every 6 months. BP is good, Cholesterol is holding at about 200 (could be better for sure), sugar is good, nothing out of range. (knocking on every piece of wood I can find right now!) I only take 6000mg fish oil, 99mg potassium, 500mg magnesium, and 1000mg Vit C. I am trying to eat clean (or at least much cleaner) than I did when I was younger. I have been doing that for about 2-3 years now. I feel much better.

My mother had diabetes & did not lead a very active or healthy lifestyle. She was on 12 different meds, taking 30 pills a day. I am determined not to be like that.

That is a bit about me.
