Hi, I am Rose. I live in the Tampabay area. I am a wife, mother, and a small business owner. I work my hours around my son's school day and work most weekends. I live close to Busch Gardens and go there usually once a week with my son. (More when I have family from out of town) Well, not anymore. Someone hit my car and it was totaled out. Unfortunately I was driving my car at the time. My back is messed up and I go to physical therapy 2 to 3 times per week. It stinks not being able to go to Busch Gardens and ride the rides. Now I can go and walk around like we used too (a ton of walking there) but I want the rides too! The accident also helped add 25+ lbs to my already bigger body. I need to get it off and keep it off! BMI to restart with is 48, very high.
Mini Goals
Weigh 240 lbs - Unknown, just something -Decided on a massage
Weigh 218 lbs - Class II obese (bmi 39.9)
Weigh 215 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided on a facial
Weigh 191 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided a massage and facial!
Weigh 191 - Class 1 Obesity instead of starting class 3 (from 48 to 34.9)
Weigh 170 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided New Thinx
Weigh 163.6 lbs - No longer obese just overweight (bmi 29.9)- Unknown, just something
Weigh 150 lbs - Hubby treats to new clothes
Weigh 136lbs - Normal weight according to BMI (24.9) - New Thinx
Weigh 130 lbs - Full Body Wax - Husband pays
Goal Weight - Full Body Massage with spa day - Treat for me by me - New Thinx also.

I completed my first 5k in December 2014. It was my 41st birthday BUT it was before the time I was born so I could say I completed it when I was 40. Yay color run! It's more fun with colors being flung at you.

Reports Page is Blank!!
Try logging into the Canadian site and entering it there. Sometimes if you do that it comes back here also. I couldn't enter somethings here until I logged in there, entered it, and then logged in here. Weird but it sometimes helps.
