Im happily married to a wonderful man who loves me thick or thin. Me ...Im not loving the thick. I want to let go of the excess baggage! I have hypothyroidism which has been the main factor in my weight gain. Im finally starting to feel better and really want to look good again. I miss the old me and I want her back!!

Member Since: 10/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 135

My Goals:
Finally starting to understand that hating myself because of the extra weight is only making my stress level worse.

Letting my size be what determines my value is ridiculous and wrong. I am still the same person inside as I was when I was thin.

My goal is to love myself as I am and to celebrate the small victories instead of expecting it all at once.

My Program:
Im back on Atkins. I dont feel well when I eat carbs even though I absolutely love them and crave them. Ive been learning that people with hypothyroidism often do better with a lot less carbs.

Personal Information:
Im from Canada and lived most of my liife in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I am married to an American ( the most wonderful husband). We recently moved to Yuma, Arizona from Ridgecrest, California. Was very hard to leave the fantastic friends we made there, although I know we will always be friends. Im hoping to make some new and wonderful friends here also. I miss my friends and family back home but I dont miss the cold winters or the mosquitoes.

Other Information:
I love animals. I spent a number of years running an animal shelter.

I also love books, gardening, movies, decorating and music.

    In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

    Here is an inspirational message from Sir Winston Churchill, who has inspired so many! May it be an inspiration to you and others:

    "Never, never, never give up!"

    Sending along a little Irish prayer for your St. Patrick's Day week...................

    May God give you...
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.

    ~ Have a great week! ~
