Mother, two boys ages 22 & 24, Professional Chef who loves to cook and LOVES NFL Football especially the Dallas Cowboys. I've been on this path to eat healthy and exercise at least 30 minutes a day on my Wii Fit (Love It) and I incorporate walk/run for 30 minutes every day.


Born in Los Angeles, CA but raised in Dallas, TX since I was 2 yrs. old.

I have always been a small person but four years ago I lost my mother. When my mother passed away I felt like life was over I was always sad and depressed. With my sadness and depression I ate. I went from weighing 135 to 185 and I was so miserable. What made me decide that I needed to do something for ME my husband took a picture of me sitting on the couch. It was the most awful picture, but that picture he took made me realize how I let myself go.

New Years 2007 my resolution was to lose weight, be happy and to live life to the fulliest.

I have never been a huge fan of diets, so my plan was to do a kitchen over haul and to eliminate all the bad foods and to stock healthy foods. When I put my food plan together it was time for an exercise plan. I didn't like gyms, but I loved being outdoors, so I started walking every day and incorporating light runs with my walks. One year later I was back weighing 135 and my life was joyous.

It has been two years now since my weight loss and I have been able to keep it off with healthy eating and exercise and plus my husband and I take a cruise once a year just to get away to relax and enjoy.


We met on a singles online website. Made a bet on a college basketball game. He lost, so I went from Dallas, TX to San Diego, CA on a blind date this was March 11, 2003. (Story too long to tell), but to keep it short we fell madly in love with one another and all I can say I moved to San Diego 12 days later. We were married August 2005 and it has been Heaven since we met.

Is not to lose weight because I have reached my desired weight of 135 lbs, but it doesn't hurt to shed a few more pounds just in case I want to have a CHEAT day. My ultimate goal is to get myself in physical shape to run a 1/2 marathon.

Eating three healthy meals a day. (I don't eat high Carb foods or sugars) and to work out for 30 minutes on my Wii Fit and walk/run for about 20-30 minutes every day.
