My name is Jeanette. I have 3 beautiful daughters who are also on this journey with me. I have always been the designated fat friend. At least since I was 14 I have been. But I am tired of that. I am better than that! Somewhere along the way I have lost myself and I am determined to rediscover the person who I am. My weight has held me back from so much and I want to discover so much more and embrace new adventures. I have the urge to go kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, zip lining, and to take dance classes. Maybe even find a healthy cooking class. I want to be a good role model for my daughters and teach them the proper tools to avoid an unhealthy life. I want them to love their bodies and to know how to take care of themselves. I want to be their example. I have rediscovered my forgotten love of dance over the last couple of weeks. Now it seems I am dancing all the time! And my kids love it! They come home from school and we dance around the house singing our hearts out! These are the memories I will treasure with my girls! Yes we are those crazy people you see while driving down the highway who are singing and dancing along with the music! I am discovering foods that I have never tried before and cooking so much healthier! Literally I have begun dreaming about making spinach and strawberry salads at night! I love black beans and am learning so much more about new to me foods! Even my daughters are getting into the kitchen to try out new recipes and cook. We planted a small garden and we get excited when we have fresh veggies that we grew. My daughters and I celebrate every little victory both scale and non scale. They are my biggest cheerleaders. They are my trainers. They push me harder than the trainer at the gym. When I have a weight loss they cheer and when I have a bad weigh in they remind me about how far I have come. They are amazing!

My Goals:
My number one goals are to be healthy and be a role model for my daughters. I know somewhere inside is a woman who has been fighting to become the best she can be and I am working on setting her free! I have decided to not look to just the scale for my victories but to discover all the things I can do now but couldn't do before because of my weight. I am on the right track!

My Program:
Between the gym and trying to work exercise into everything I do I am almost constantly in motion. I am cooking better, eating better, drinking water, and spending more time with my kids than I used to. I used to just be the mom who sat on the sidelines watching but now I am getting out there with them and walking, swimming, and playing right along side them.

Personal Information:
I am mom to 3 beautiful girls. And one spoiled fur baby. I grew up in a small town in Northern California and am currently living in South Central Kentucky. I love to read, cook, dance, am crafty, and spend time with friends and family. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I go all out with the decorating. In fact my yearly Christmas party planning starts basically right at the beginning of the year and goes the whole year!

Other Information:
Since starting my journey I have developed a closer bond with my daughters, lost weight, gone down 1 size, and have discovered new foods and learned that exercise can be fun. I have also learned to laugh at myself and not take myself so seriously. I have lost some friends but have gained many more. I have started to face my demons and have started exploring what has led me to being overweight and facing those demons head on.
