I am the mother of 3 beautiful kids! I am blessed to have the circumstances to home school them. Even though I wouldn't choose to do it any other way, it has made it difficult at times to focus on taking care of myself. My kids are getting older, and of course that means that I am too! So, I am finally ready to make the time to take care of myself. I've struggled with weight my entire life. I am done with struggling. I am finally ready to be healthy!

Confession to Strangers or Trying to get out of Depression
I have been on and off antidepressants for about 9 years but for the past year I have been able to control my depression with exercise. It not only helps my depression but also my fibromyalgia. My husband suffers from an anxiety disorder and although he does take meds he has found that working out makes him feel better. He is able to stay on a lower dose because of this. It's definitely worth it Smile

Trying to figure out how to make Chobani's yogurt taste better.
add a packet of truvia or splenda to it. My kids usually do that and they love it!

Home-cooking difficult to post
I use the cook book for home cooked meals like beef stew or minestrone. Then when I eat it I just add it to my meals for the day. If you keep the recipe private, then you can go in and tweak it any time you like.
