I have enjoyed the benefits of this site for over ten years. I have made many wonderful (cyber) friends and enjoy all the tips and advice. I hope to be the best that I can be in this lifetime. I thank GOD for all of my blessings.

Looking back, I have slowly gained weight over many years. I have to find a program that will work for me so that I can reverse this trend, take off the weight and keep it off. I do NOT want something that is a quick fix such as a pill or meal kit program diet. I was prescribed pills about 20 years ago that took off the weight but I gained it back plus much more when I quit taking them.

I was a skinny child but overweight almost all of my adult life. Other than my weight and thyroid, which is controlled with medication, I am healthy.

My Goals:
I really need to put more focus on myself and getting into shape. I have to feel better about myself and be able to look at myself in pictures without wanting to cry.

Goal 1 - lose 10 lbs
Take it one baby step at a time adding a goal after each is met

Ultimate Goal: feel comfortable in my own skin.

My Program:
Incorporate exercise in everyday activities as much as possible
Eat 6 or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day
Limit sweets - and eat clean
Drink at least 10 glasses of water each day
Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night

Personal Information:
My name is April and I have been married to my loving husband for almost 36 years. We have two beautiful daughters who have grown into beautiful, successful young ladies and one son-in-law. We live in the country on a few acres of land with our dogs who love to run and explore.

Other Information:
I love exercise and feel great when I've accomplished a challenge.
My biggest challenge is eating. I'm not a binge eater but I have a hard time staying on track. It's too easy for me to eat out with friends or family and fall back into the same routine that got me into this shape. I'm trying very hard to limit portions and make healthy choices.
