I'm 46 years old, 5-feet tall (almost), and have 4 children. I began this final weight-loss journey March of 2006 at 185#. I hit my initial goal of 118# on November 1, 2007. I began by using Curves 6-week Solution, but found I stalled at 142#. I lowered my carb intake to max. 60g/day and was able to achieve goal.

I'm finding maintaining to be tricky, but I'm in it for the long haul. I had gained 30#s back over the last few years and recently lost that weight and hit my goal weight...again (May 2016)! Once again, I'm trying to learn how to maintain. With the help and support of my hubby, I'm feeling stronger than ever!

My Goals:
Now that I've hit goal (11/1/07), it's time to focus on maintaining as well as toning. This ole body has not been well taken care of and it shows - even with the weight loss!! So here's to more water, more exercise, and continued healthy eating in order to maintain my weight loss.

My Program:

Personal Information:
I have 4 wonderful children (19 year-old twins, 16 year old, and a 15 year old). I am a full-time teacher of children with special needs. I'm happily married (2013) and am blessed to have found a man who is SO supportive of my healthy lifestyle, as he's living it too. Heathy lifestyle is what it's all about. It's all good...

Other Information:
Each day I make a choice to be healthy. The urge to overeat and make bad food choices are still just a bite away, but I choose to stay healthy by making good food choices as well as exercising. I'm not perfect - never will be and don't strive to be - but I do aim to be the best mommy, teacher, and friend I can be. Thanks for your support in my journey to do just that...

    Hi - Thanks for the post on my page....I wish I was as close to goal as you, but we all have our battles (LOL) Your children are just the pic of them on memorial day ( "all looking the same direction") cute! Take care and best of luck on your goal. We'll talk again soon. Cindy
