Hello! My name is Andy and I am a 39 year old teacher, wife, and mommy to the cutest 6 year old daughter and 2 step children. I've been on a healthy lifestyle change for over 10 years now and I realize that I deserve to be happy with myself since I have embarked on this journey to be healthy. I lost over 60 pounds in 2008 using SP but the after having Punkie-Pie I gained weight. I AM BAAACK and SO incredibly motivated. I love a challenge and finally feel back in control. I am an easy going, fun, and bubbly person. I've learned not to take life for granted. "Don't take life too seriously, you'll never make it out alive"--Van Wilder. I've struggled with my weight all my life and I am gaining control, one step at a time. We can and WILL do this! :)

Personal Information:
I am a 34year old 3rd grade teacher(Now stay-at-home mommy) that has ALWAYS struggled with weight. I love my family and friends, taking pictures of my baby girl, to read, my cats, music, and movies. I've been diagnosed with Poly cystic ovarian syndrome and I am learning to deal with it.

PS: I gave up soda and sweet tea in November 1998 cold-turkey and haven't had it since! I drink water 98% of the time and occasionally enjoy 100% juice in moderation.

    I was terrified about closing for no reason whatsoever! I'd heard so many horror stories of people that were supposed to close, but were pushed back for one missing piece of paper, etc... but our only issue was that the settlement company had to re-fax something that didn't go through the first time.

    I definitely counted all of the moving, stair climbing, unpacking, etc. in my head... but I didn't track it because I'd slacked on tracking everything in all the moving madness. I think I'm going to reset just about everything on SP on February 1st... that'll give me a few days to get back into the swing of things and a nice, clean start.

    Hope you are doing well! =)

    I can relate to having texture issues with foods. There a ton of foods I won't eat because of texture. I had to try a couple of Greek yogurts before I found one that I liked... and I had to remember to really mix it well because it does not taste good plain in my opinion. The Chobani pineapple seems to be my favorite. =)

    Thanks for the blog comment. Luckily, the ice cream is the 1/2 the fat kind so I can totally work in a little bit of it here and there. The problem has been that there's been more than a little bit far too often lately. I'm hoping to avoid the ice cream aisle after this 1/2 gallon is gone though... at least for a little while.

    Hope you are doing well! =)
