My name is Miki. I am happily married to Phil (19 yrs) and have two boys, Josh 13 and Luke 11. I work "parttime" at a bank which means almost every day. I worked there fulltime for 13 yrs before going to part-time to have more time for family and housekeeping, etc. I live in southeast Arkansas where I have lived my entire life (except for college in Louisiana).

I began the journey to a healthier life this past Oct because I panicked when I realized I'd be 40 in March. Everyone says it's harder after 40 so I knew I better get busy. The first 6 months or so I did really well as far as the scales showed. I've lost 42 lbs and I lost 5 inches in my waist, 4 from my hips. That seems to have come to a halt lately and I'm getting very discouraged. I havent lost a lb or an inch in 6 weeks or more!! I rarely miss a day of exercise. I think my biggest problem is not drinking water like I used to. I have just got to make myself get back into that.

My highest weight that I remember was 256. My goal is 160. I am 5 ft 7 1/2.

Guess that's about it about me for now.
