Married 30-something mom of two-under-two. Been overweight over half my life and have developed a lot of health problems because of it. I know losing weight would basically eliminate my health issues. Also, I want to set a good example for my girls. My oldest will be three in May 2013 and children begin developing long-term memories around that age. I want to be at a healthy weight and living a healtier lifestyle by that date so that my children remember me being thin and healthy. It will help me set a better example for them and help them lead a healthier lifestyle and hopefully avoid the issues I've had.

Other Information:
Love cooking, baking, and eating - unfortunately!

Fortunately, I can cook fairly healthy and I know lots of people who love to eat my baked goods (so I don't 'have' to).

Also love camping, hiking, fishing, and reading.
