The Most Deserving Man I Know…

Every year, one of our local radio stations does a 12 Days of Christmas bit. Listeners can nominate themselves or someone they know who could use a hand up and win $1000. For us, like many people, the holidays can be hard. We are a single income family of 5 and my husband works as hard as he can for us. Continue reading “The Most Deserving Man I Know…”

Trying to Lose Weight and Get Healthy (again!)

I have struggled with my weight pretty much my whole life. As a child I was chubby. As a teenager I still carried some extra weight around, though I did play softball from age 10 to 17. My first time dieting and losing weight was when I was 19 for my sister’s wedding. When I was 20 I had Bug, and for the last 10 years my weight has been up and down. My last attempt at losing weight and becoming healthier started almost 2 years ago, in October 2012.
