Today is day 1 of the rest of my life. I joined SP in 2012 bouncing from 180 to 160 but it seems like happy medium is 170. I don’t like any of those numbers. Today I wiped all of my about me and will reset everything here. Why? 1. I’m a full time wife, mother, and student. 2. My mom died a couple of months ago. 3. I have asthma and high cholesterol that is being managed my medication. 4. I have serious back issues that were exasperated when caring for my mom. 5. God is bigger than anything and I need to take control of my daily habits. I’m done with hurting. I’m done with not being able to do what I enjoy. I need to keep moving forward. Goals: See neurosurgeon. Get tested for allergies. Find a workable anti-inflammatory meal plan while I’m in college, and can be flexible for when I’m working. (And one flavorful for hubs) Loose 5 pounds a month. Not harsh myself. Here’s to the first day of the rest of my life.

Be active, 10 minutes a day, doing whatever makes me happy.

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona now. Have been married since 1991 and have a son with autism.
I was homeschooling him and he's now in public school. That is an answer to my prayers and better for my health. He did not like going outside, and I LOVE going outside!
I work for God in everything I do and my health should not be left out!

Whew! My days are busy!

I read my Bible and find strength and encouragement in it. I have a bestie friend who has a heart condition and understands.

God bless you all! You CAN do this!

    Thank you for the comment on my thread. I really do need to spend time with the Lord every morning, journaling use to be a huge part of my life...I feel closest to Him when I'm quiet and put pen to paper. Finding the quiet time is the hard part with a 4yr old.....always seems like there's more to do and that I should do more!!

    Where is your indoor skate park? I seriously need to get out more! lol
    (what church do you attend?)

    A doctor put me on Phen Phen when I was 12 and I've had thyroid and anxiety problems ever since. I see a homeopathic doctor that knows I'll take an extra trip to her office if I need sometihing or I'll sit on my phone in the waiting room and look up things. And the good thing is she knows I'm just making sure I never put anything in my body that will hurt it like the Phen Phen did. I used to go to a regular doctor but she got offended every time I asked for a natural medication vs a chemical one. Drs can be frustrating lol.
