About Me:

I am in my mid-40's. My 7-year-old son is a picky eater who is on the autism spectrum. My husband has gout, and he and I are both overweight.

The goals I'm working toward:

  • Losing 25 pounds
  • Cooking more healthful family meals
  • Eating more fruit and veggies
  • Exercising 4x a week

I haven't felt comfortable with my weight since:

About 2 years ago, since my son started school

My favorite healthy food:

Cherries, blackberries, peaches. Ripe, local tomatoes.

My guiltiest pleasure:

Chocolate-chip cookies.

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I want to feel better in my clothes and have energy to keep up with my son.

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Walking
  • Drinking water
  • Exercising while watching TV

My favorite activity at the gym is:

Dance class

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • Reaching my goal weight in '97 at Weight Watchers
  • Hearing my son laugh at a joke
  • Being willing to fill out this form
  • Cooking the unfamiliar veggies from my CSA box each week
