I am a wife and homeschooling mom with 4 children. My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Sep 09. I wanted to get thin for that, but did not know about this program.
I have had many health challenges in my life. I was diagnosed over 30 years ago with Lupus. Last fall, I was told that I don't have it. But, I've had hospital stays in the last year. Last In Oct 0f2009, I got the H1N1 virus. Had complications of AF,and pneumonia. I was in for a week. In Feb. 2010 I had some intestinal problems. Not sure of the cause, as an IBD panel came back negative. My latest problems have been low white blood cell levels.
I have had weight challenges most of my life, too. I started getting pudgy when I was 8, after having my tonsils out.
Have been to what I consider a good normal weight two times in my life.
Here are a couple of quotes I like:

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.~Winston Churchill

What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.~Ralph Waldo Emerson
