My name is Debbie, aka Rosebbie, I’m in my 50’s, a Christian and a wife of 29 yrs. I’m also a mother of 2 grown special needs kids, who we adopted 20 yrs ago. For the past 15 yrs I’ve been living w/the pain and fatigue that comes w/Lupus and Fibromyalgia.

Member Since: 9/5/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goal is to find the thin me that's buried under the extra 150 lbs I’m carrying on my 5' 4" frame. I lost sight of the thin me nearly 30 years ago when I started taking care of everybody else while my needs were put on the back burner. In neglecting myself I lost my health as the number on the scale climbed to an all time high of 300 lbs. Therefore as I work hard toward reaching my goal weight I hope to gain back as much of my health as possible.

My Program:
For me it’s not a diet it’s a WOE(way of eating) I have switched from counting calories to the 6 Week Body Makeover WOE. For me it's going to be more like 16 months, and by time I reach my goal it will have become a life long WOE to maintain.

Here's my exercise routine that I do 3 x week:

Warm up-stationary bike,
20-30 min of stretching
Strengthing routine -
Total Gym
Resistant Band
Cool Down - Bike

Personal Information:
I live with my dh(Jerry) and dd(Chrissy) along with 1 dog and 2 cats in the small town of Toutle, which is in SW WA under the shadow of Mt St Helens. I enjoy reading, writing, scrapbooking, needlework, and last but not least daily visits to the World Wide Web.

Other Information:
I’m elated to have found SparkPeople at this time in my life. It is exactly what was needed to jump start me into a healthier WOL(way of living). About 5 yrs ago I managed to lose 24 lbs only to gain half of them back. Today (9/6/07) as I join SP I’m at 279. I feel confident that with the Lord’s help and the support I’ll find here at SP I’m finally going to succeed at finding the thin me. Because I’m finally loving myself enough to get off the back burner of my life.
