    MARITAL STATUS: Married for 23 years to my highschool sweetheart

    SPOUSE’S NAME: Ed

    CHILDREN/AGES: 2 boys - 18 and 14

    HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Well my family seems to be my biggest hobby because they take up most of my time and I guess that is they way it should be, I also love walking and chatting/posting at 3fatchicks, playing on the computer, I have a special interest in teenagers, and I like cooking (which means of course, that I like eating too - surprise!)

    PETS: 2 outside dogs - one is a chocolate lab for duck hunting the other is just cute little black and white rat terrior that is fun to have around.

    HAIR COLOR: Brown

    OCCUPATION: Secretary/Bookkeeper

    GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Louisiana

    WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:
    my slow metabolism and not enough exercise
    (because I sit at a desk and computer all day)

    WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
    I measure success differently these days ---- eating healthy, exercising and drinking water is a successful day for me, the scale and my size have to be secondary - sometimes you just have to make the best of what you have and accept what you cannot change! :-)

    I am a Christian, Jesus is Lord of my life!
    My walk with Jesus is the most important walking I do!
