Well, I just turned 30 years old (Dec 2013) and in the same month got a job promotion and had to move to Austin, TX! I can already tell this year is going to be exciting and I'm doing this all for myself. Last year was rough emotionally so I'm ready to move forward and make this the best year ever- job wise, emotionally, mentally and physically.


I am 36 yrs old. I have been married 10 years this past July. I have 2 children from my first marriage, and 4 with my husband, for a total of 6 children. I have been overweight my entire adult life. I have also struggled with depression since I was a teen. My depression highs coinside with my weight gain, and I do alot of emotional eating. My top weight was about 245. A few years ago my mom introduced me to a way of eating called Natural Hygiene. The book I read that introduced me to this is called Fit For Life by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond. I have always been a large eater. My family use to call me hollow leg because about 20-30 minutes after eating a meal I would want to eat again, which I now contribute to the low nutrient foods I must have been eating. Whenever I've done this diet I have gotten down to around 170. I will go all the way this time, and really will make this my lifestyle. Right before I got pregnant with my last daughter I ate vegan for 1 month and then raw vegan for 2 months. I really enjoy it, but my husband and children don't really join me in eating this way. So there are still temptations all around me.


I turn forty in January 2014. During my 30's, I had twins, ran 2 half-marathons, lots of 5K's and one 10K. I went back to work full time two years ago and dropped the ball on everything - eating right, exercising - everything. Now, two years later, nearing 40, I weigh more than I ever have in my life, get out of breath from a simple hill, and want to get my life back on track before 40 hits.


I am a 40 year old single African woman. I live in Quebec City, Canada. I achieved my weight loss goal back in 2009 and I am learning how to maintain my weight and establish what is my ideal weight. I enjoy being active and I love running. I'm training to increase my mileage and speed this year and run a half marathon by August/September
