Hi My name is Dorothy
I'm a 44 year old mother of 4 boys. I have 2 young adult children - 24, and 20...and I'm starting over with my 4yr old twins plus I'm a Grammie to my 1-1/2 yr old grandson! :)
Before the twins birth - I was very active, worked 2 jobs, very social, nothing could stop me. After the twins were born I returned to my normal weight and 9 months later I was diagnosed with a spinal deformity (Scoliosis), and have since been told I have arthritis in the lower part of my spine. I'm always in pain. Some days are very bad and some days are ok. My twins keep me busy and alive.
I've done the Atkins diet a few times times before the twins and I was successful. I am on this journey again to acquire better health, become more active - exercise on a daily basis, acquire self esteem, support and motivation from each and everyone I cross paths with and I guarantee I will do the same..
What made me arrive at this stage is when I jumped on the scale and I weighed 5 pounds more than I did when I laid in the hospital and gave birth to the twins at 8 months pregnant. I was in utter shock. I have gained 55-60 pounds since 11/08.. and it is TIME FOR THE POUNDS TO GO!!! :)
I'm glad I'm here... Dorothy :)
