About me

I've never been a fan of writing "about me's".  Ok, so here are the facts!  My journey with my weight can be found on this post - How Did I Get Here?  Or this post - A History of Dieting

I am a 38 39 year old wife to the most wonderful husband in the world. I'm also mom to a pretty awesome 19 year old.  I work in Tech Support for a state agency in Baton Rouge, LA.  I love my job and it's quite perfect for my A.D.D.  I basically troubleshoot computer problems, assist with password issues, setup pc equipment and all the other fun stuff that working Helpdesk entails.  In my spare time, I am an avid movie lover, TV junkie, book reader and I also bowl on a league on Mondays.  

Chris and I have been married since 2004 and he really is my best friend.  He supports me no matter what and I am truly grateful that he is my rock. 

And this is Devyn.  Overall she is a really sweet and all around awesome kid.  We've just hit a couple of speed bumps along the way.  I guess I was the same way at 18 so I really can't complain too much.  She is my freddy-poo-kins and I love her more than she will ever know.

RIP little Buzzy  :(
And last but not least is the zoo.  Buzz the Dog, next is Doyle, Loki then finally Oz.  They round out our little family!
