I'm a mother of 3 and have been married to my lovely husband for 18 years. I can honestly say there has never been a time that I didn’t struggle with maintaining a healthy weight. I have been everything from a size 2-18. I am currently down from 211lbs (my highest weight ever) and am hoping to continue the downward trend. I am a certified personal trainer and I know what to do and eat but I find the support of this community invaluable.

Member Since: 1/9/2010

Fitness Minutes: 8,839

My Goals:
My goal is to be a size 4/6 (or even 2) this summer. I am looking forward to regaining the cut and toned I had at the end of my last competition.

My Program:
I am a Lacto- Ovo Pescaterian. Which basically means I am a vegetarian who eats dairy, eggs and seafood on occasion. I eat 5 smaller meals a day. I usually have a big salad (with protein) for lunch. I also enjoy Yoga, Pilates and belly dancing.

Personal Information:
I am a teacher of students from toddlers to seniors. I love teaching. I am a school teacher, but I also teach dance, yoga, theater and group fitness classes. I am a certified Personal Trainer but I am looking forward to going back to school for my degree in counseling. I have 3 beautiful children with my husband and we now live in Bridgeport CT.

Other Information:
I love to read Sophia Kinsella, Charlaine Harris, Louisa May Alcott, Stephanie Meyer and Jane Austen to name a few. Some of my favorite movies are the Wedding Singer, Gigi,, Die Hard, My Neighborhood Totoro, Amelie, Little Women, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Bridget Jone's Diary,Ever After & Why Did I get Married. I am hopelessly addicted to True Blood and Breaking Bad
