I'm Diane and I live in sunny Southern CA (transplanted from PA). I am a Marketing Communications Director and and Independent Wellness Consultant (Nikken rules!). I'm married, have 2 grown sons, 2 gorgeous daughters-in-law, 3 grandkids I'm nutz about (they all live back East), a Golden Retriever and 2 Fuzzy Butt Boyz (guinea pigs). My husband and I are very active in Kiwanis (I get to indulge my passion for writing) and I love to read, kayak, and dance.

And this space, like my body, is a work in progress...25 pounds at a time until I reach my goal weight of 170 pounds or less.

Member Since: 10/23/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I want to maximize my wellness, lose 125 pounds, have more energy and kayak more often!

Since I have so much fat to release, the total goal is divided into 25 pound increments.

My Program:
Aside from following the great advice found on this site, I''m trying to ascertain why I have a weight problem by reading "The Solution" by Laurel Mellin.

I basically follow a diabetic food plan.

Personal Information:
Originally from Allentown, PA (in the Lehigh Valley) I transplanted myself to Southern CA in 1997. My husband and I moved to Oxnard in January 2007.

Other Information:
My husband and I are "owned" by 2 guinea pigs and a Golden Retriever. We have (between us) 3 sons and 3 grandchildren; all of our family live back East or in Michigan and we love to travel, read, kayak and cook. We''ve been married for 7 years, and we love spending time together. (Yes, we also each have our own interests.)

    So glad to hear from you! I was a stay at home mom for 10 years and then went back to work last year -- it is quite an adjustment, isn't it?! Glad to hear your new job is going well.

    Hi Diane -

    Haven't heard from you in a while, and hope that all has gone well with the move - your new place sounds like it is wonderful. I am missing reading your daily posts in GOG ... Today we are having a day of prayer and fasting - and I wanted to let you know that I am praying that you have a wonderful year ahead, and that you experience the Lord's blessings in all of your life, including in your success on your journey to health.

    If you get a chance - stop by the GOG main chat board and let us know how you are doing - we are all missing you ...

    Love you my friend - and God Bless.
