Hi! I am Donna..I turned 40 this year and have started a whole new life. I use to take care of my husband and sadly I lost myself along the way. After 19 years of marriage he cheated so I divorced him. Not because I didn't love him anymore but because I know I did not deserve that & I know I deserve respect. Now I put myself and my health first. It is not vain but healthy to take care of yourself 1st! - I am taking care of me and I feel good about myself. - I like who I am and I made a choice to only surround myself with people who appreciate me and all that I have to offer:) Each day I am realizing that I am stronger than I thought I could ever be, I will be healthy and happy! I will feel and look amazing by end of 2010. *~* GOOD LUCK to all on reaching their goals!

My Goals:
I want to feel and yes.. look fabulous by the end of 2010 & YES.. I will do it! :D Back in late 2008.. I learned that my husband cheated on me and at same time i found out that i have a slow thyroid, so since then I have been working on both of those problems. I take medicine for my thyroid & I divorced the cheat! Between taking my medicine, seeing my doc, weighing in.. also being around those who truly care about me.. I am finally feeling hopeful and even happy again! :)

My Program:
Every day I do try to eat healthier and to not eat so late at night. - I also try to think B4 I eat.. because I tend to be an emotional eater. - So if I get stressed I tend to eat, so now I really try to snack on only healthy snacks!!!

    Hi Donna-
    Welcome to the Fox Valley and West Suburbs Teams!!! I too am divorced and for the first time in 49 years trying to learn to take care of me. Maybe not always putting myself first, but taking care of me so that I have something worthwhile to give to the things I really care about. Hope to get to know you more. Good luck on your journey to the best you possible.

    Hi Donna. Welcome to the Dupage County Dieters. I'm the missing leader of the team. I'm still on Sparks People, I just don't have time for being a team leader and moved to Boston a year ago. If you would like to be the leader let me know. All you have to do is check up on people and post on the team every once in a while. I use to do walking meet ups which were always fun, but it's hard to do 1,000 miles away. Unless you guys would like to walk here hahaha! Have an awesome day emoticon
