I am a 40 years young, full-time working Wife, Mom and sometime student and most recently, a triathlete! After having Gastric Bypass Surgery on November 15, 2006, I'm learning what it's like to actually lead my life, instead of watching it from the sidelines.

I have a long story of weight loss, gain, loss -- including losing 150 pounds TWICE, once with gastric bypass surgery (which I CAN'T RECOMMEND!) and once via healthy eating and exercise. This is a journey and if you're interested, you can read all about my lonnnnggg journey on my blog. Now, the thing I care most about is putting aside perfection and blame and just living healthy and happy!
