My daughters. Aren't they beautiful? I'm sure proud of them.

I'm gone...I'm back...I'm gone...I'M BACK!

I have been on a journey to change my life, not just my weight.
I have always battled with depression and self-hatred. I have found an author who is changing my life! I have been reading two books..."Change your life in 30 days" and "Do I look fat in this?" by Rhonda Britten. I would STRONGLY reccommend these books to anyone. I can say that I love myself for who I am (for the first time in almost 40 years). I do not live in the past and my past hurts can hurt me no more. I live for today and tomorrow and have never been happier.
Don't get me wrong, I still stress! I am still a laid-off employee (a.k.a. unemployed)...I am a single mom with bills, a house payment, and two teenage daughters to raise. That is enough to make anyone stress. I make all my decisions for today and tomorrow. What happened yesterday is gone!

My Goals:
I want to lose about 50 pounds by my 40th birthday in March 2010. That would not be my goal weight, but I would feel great about turning 40.

Goal #1: Lose 22 pounds.

Reward #1: New Sneakers and workout clothes.

Goal #2: Lose 15 pounds.

Reward #2: Day at the spa.

Goal #3: Lose 15 pounds.

Reward #3: First Goal Weight...Shopping spree for birthday.

Goal #4: Lose 10 pounds.

Reward #4: New Hair Style.

Goal #5: Final Goal. Lose 10 pounds.

Reward #5: Trip to beach!

My Program:
I want to work on what I eat and how much I exercise. I know that it takes both!

Personal Information:
I am from Wichita, KS. I wish that I lived somewhere more "active".
I wish I could find a support group here. I have tried some groups, but I want something smaller and with people closer to my age.

Other Information:
I am a single mother of a 17 year old and a 15 year old...both girls. (My 17 year old lost 30 pounds when I lost my 70...I am so proud of her.) They are wonderful and my life. Soon they will be gone and they will no longer define me...I will have to define myself and I don't want it to be what I am right now.
I have a boyfriend. He is in one of the pictures with me. He lost 30 pounds when I lost the 70. Now he is at his goal and doesn't work on his weight any more. That makes it harder for me...
