I am here again. Starting all over, again.


I have had some major health problems, and it has been since November 12th, 2014 since my last surgery. I am starting to feel like myself again.

I have gained an unhealthy amount of weight, again.
I am back to force myself to get back into shape, once again.

I lost my beautiful Grammy, November 15th, 2015.
I miss her terribly. She meant everything to me.
So I am doing this, at least in part, for her.

I have some main goals!

1. Lose 81 pounds.
2. Fit into my size 6 pants again. (Size 15 now!)
3. Change my wardrobe so I can stop feeling so frumpy!
4. Be prepared for survival training/camping.
5. Be fit enough to start building our eco-friendly, off the grid, sustainable house and my studio!
6. Feel great, look great, and be healthy!
7. Feel sexy for my husband again! ;)

Over the last few years, life has been a struggle. In many ways.
Even through the struggles, I have managed to obtain some of my major goals!

I work for myself. I am growing my business. I have my husband as a business partner. We are so very fortunate for this opportunity!
I love having him with me daily. My son is so much happier. We can be a family again, instead of roommates.

I am ready to start my life again. I am ready to live, and to feel like myself again.
I am ready for this challenge!
