Hello, my name is Kathy and I am 39 years old. I have a wonderful husband and 3 kids that are very active. I would like to improve my life so I can enjoy every minute with them (and have the energy to do it)....lol I have struggled with my weight for about 15 years or so. I WAS an emotional eater. I have learned that food can no longer be my friend. I was just recently introduced to this website by a very smart lady named Julie. So I am totally new at all this stuff that goes along with it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. The pictures I have chosen to post for now are of my kids. Since I do not allow pictures of myself to willingly be taken. Well not yet anyway. Hopefully this will change with time and knowledge on how to deal with loosing the extra weight I have packed on over the years. Good luck to all and God Bless.

    What I learned from a snowman (Unknown author)

    It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.
    Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.
    Wearing white is always appropriate.
    Winter is the best of the four seasons.
    It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.
    There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.
    The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.
    It's not the size of the carrot, but the placement that counts.
    We're all made up of mostly water.
    You know you've made it when they write a song about you.
    Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
    Avoid yellow snow.
    Don't get too much sun.
    It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.
    It's fun to hang out in your front yard.
    Always put your best foot forward.
    There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
