Divorced mom trying to find herself and start a new life after lap band surgery.

Member Since: 3/8/2007

Fitness Minutes: 4,350

My Goals:
To continue to lose weight, learn to eat healthy, exercise more and be happy with who I am. Weight loss so far, 60 pounds. I'd like to lose another 60 by June 2008.

My Program:
Keep track of daily calorie intake and exercise more.

Personal Information:
I'm a divorced mom living in the midwest. I've been single for almost 10 years now. I've been over weight all of my life and finally was approved for lap band surgery last summer. I have a pretty stressful job (law enforcement dispatcher) which doesn't always help to maintain healthy eating habits , but I'm learning to work around that. I had the surgery so I could live a longer, healthy life and to be happy with who I am. If by chance I were to finally meet someone and develope a new relationship with him, that would just be the icing on the cake!!! (low fat of course!!)

Other Information:
.I'm just a single, simple lady from Nebraska. I love pretty much all things western: horses, rodeos, old western movies and Tim Cox paintings. I also like classic muscle cars, football, hockey and BASEBALL. I'm an animal person. I have 5 cats, three of them were orphaned kittens that I bottle fed from the time they were only about a month old and were abandoned by their mom. My newest kitten came in last December during one of our numerous blizzards. I opened the back door to put out some food and water for him and he just walked in like he had always been there. The other cats accepted him immediately... Unbelievable!!! I work in law enforcement and love my guys in blue. They have been my rock and my constant supporters through my divorce and everything that has happened since then. I truly don't know where I'd be without them.
Now, if I could just find someone single, in my age group who doesn't mind spending time with "a work in progress" then life would be pretty

    I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you. Weight loss is such a hard thing, as we all know...that's why we're all here on SP. Whenever you get discouraged, just remember -- if you never lost another pound...you've still lost 60...an amazing accomplishment, you've changed your lifestyle for the healthier, you have a great son, family, and friends...and I'm sure you could add hundreds of good things about your life to the list of "...if I never lost another pound..."! I know you will lose more -- there are lots of people rooting for you and we'll help you through those crummy discouraging days. Hang in there!!

    I changed my weight loss ticker to reflect where I was before my lap band surgery in June of 2006. It now shows my highest point. I have lost a pound since finding this web site and know that it's only the beginning. I just need to stay positive and remember that this is a life style change and I can get there!!
