I am a 35 year old mother of three children ages 6, 11, and 14. I am a newspaper reporter and I love my job! Currently, I am on medical leave as I will need a hysterectomy in the near future. I have endometriosis and it has caused me significant pain in the last few months-enough to be on some pretty strong painkillers which isn't good. Thus, my weight loss efforts have been stalled somewhat.
I have lost about 99.4 pounds in the last 18 months and I am trying to lose the last 15.6 pounds through intensive exercise and a clean diet.
Most of my diet has been a success because of the strong support I have from my close family and friends. As well, as the weight began to fall off and I began to lose, I found I actually GAINED my confidence back. Confidence I never knew I had for all those years hiding behind my bigger self.
I feel happiest when I am with my children and my significant other, and inspired every day with the friends I have made on this website.
I look forward to making even more friends so that we can encourage eachother to move towards our main goal: to become healthy and fit:)
