Default Hello

Hello, my name is Valerie (you can call me Val). I am 45 yrs. old and a stay at home mom with 3 children. We have several pets 3 dogs (one of those a very bossy chihuahua), 2 cats and a tarantula.

My husband and I have been on SB since April. I've lost 23 lbs. and he's lost 26 lbs. I am currently on medication for Hypothyroidism and very pleased that I've lost as much weight as I have.

We go to the YMCA 3 times a week for weight training and cardio. I also do a exercise video for flexibilty 6 times a week.

I look forward to chatting with all of you!

Welcome to The Beach, Val. Here's to your continued success.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome to the Beach Val!! I am very similar to you, I am also hypothyroid and taking medication, I think SBD is a great balanced diet for a thyroid patient! Keep up the great work!

Welcome, Val! You've done great! BTW, I live just east of you in Richardson. My husband needs this way of life so much and I just can't convince him to try - actually I can't get him to give up his Dr. Pepper! At least he'll eat the healthy dinners. Glad to see yours has joined in.
