The biggest challenges we face seem colossal when we have to face them alone. To break old, unhealthy habits and start new, healthy ones, you need a champion, a mentor, a friend. That's me.

Almost 5 years ago, I lost my husband to cancer, and I found myself alone, raising our kids - and it was really hard. I had to do everything. I worked full time, they went to school and daycare full time, and we didn't have very much of a life. We were just going through the motions. A little while later, I finally decided that this just couldn't continue. I needed to find a way to get myself out of the darkness and back to the world. I found this program, and while I was successful with my weight loss (55 lbs, to the healthiest weight of my life!), my story is really about what I GAINED. It changed my entire life. It changed my whole outlook, about myself, and health, and how to raise my kids, and what I wanted! It let me dream again, to figure out what I really wanted in my life. Things I didn't even know I wanted were being manifested. Now I work my schedule around school activities and participation in the things that will help my kids be better people. We're building a life of family (yes I'm remarried to my lifelong best friend!), of shared experiences. I'm so incredibly thankful that I just want to spread that gratitude around to everyone I meet!
