My Story

I am 41 years old and have struggled with my weight since I was in high school.  I have yo-yo dieted for many years and understand I am a food addict that eats emotionally.

I had this idea to start blogging my weight loss journey back in 2010 and had success reaching 1/2 of my 100 lbs weight loss goal and participated in a 1/2 marathon on November 11, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas as a triumph of my accomplishments.  We lived in San Antonio, Texas for 9 years away from family & friends in Canada.  There were many life events that occurred and sadly over the years I have regained that loss 🙁

My Dad

My dad recently passed on October 6, 2018 after a courageous short battle with Leukemia.  He was young, only 62 years old.  He was a very hard worker and never got to enjoy retirement.  This came as a shock to my family and complete devastation.  His passing has made me think a lot of my health and not wanting to be the next one in my family to get sick.  I want to live a happy full healthy life with the strength of my dad watching over me.

My Family

My family is very important to me and my why to push myself to reach new goals.  My husband and I have been together for over 18 years and married 15 years this summer.  We have 3 beautiful children, McKenna age 19, Brittney age 19 and Conner age 13.
