Hi-I will be 40 this year, and I am tired of being overweight! A little over a year ago, I was happy with my weight-which I had lost after an incredibly stressful time in my life. Well we are still going through stressful times with my husband battling cancer and all, but I am no longer in love with my weight situation, and am ready to do something about it. I got to this site by researching the skinny switch diet-and not wanting to or being able to pay the 150+ dollars for the program, have decided to go it on my own-with the help and support of my two lovely girls and beyond wonderful husband and of course any number of you all. Happy to meet you :)

My Goals:
I am hoping to get in better shape, and feel better in my clothes. I want to be healthier, feel better, and look better. I enjoyed the feeling and how I looked when I was thinner just over a year ago.

My Program:
I am trying to eat less junk food. I am eating every three hours, and trying to stay under 2000 calories per day. I am trying to eat more healthy foods, and the hardest for me, I am trying to exercise more.

Personal Information:
My name is Correena. I live in California with my husband and two beautiful and very active girls. They keep me very busy, and at times very frustrated, but I do love them so. My husband is the love of my life, and my soul-mate. He has a daughter-15 who a year ago decided to go live in Mesico with his family. This is the second marriage for both of us as we both lost our first spouse.

Other Information:
As far as the stressful times I mentioned, in November of 2007, my husband was diagnosed with rectal colon cancer, and has since undergon radiation, surgery-which left him with a permanent colostomy, and then more chemo. In November of 2008, he finished his chemo, and was supposed to be done and getting back to normal-stared working again in December after a year off, but in February of this year-during a proceedure to evaluate a hernia, more tumors were found, and he is back to chemo again, and facing another surgery to get rid of these tumors, and hopefully all of the cancer. He's a trouper though and is fighting hard-I don't want to lose another husband!
