I love this photo of myself.  It was taken during the Santarchy pub crawl on Sat, Dec 21, 2008.  Someone was trying to take a serious picture and I just butted in with my big face!  
This shows off my fun faux fir coat & purple hair.  What a fun fun night!

So here's the deal

I was doing great with my food and weight until July 17, 2006.  That's when my world came crashing down.  My husband Steve had a brain bleed and entered the hospital for 16 days.

I quit taking care of myself and started to take care of him.  

I weighed about 181-185 and felt healthy.  

We had spent 3 weeks earlier that year in Thailand and were trying to figure out how to buy land and live in Northern Thailand 6 months out of the year.

I was vegan & raw foodist.  I had been teaching raw food classes and had started working with others who had the same allergy issues.  

I made the choice to help my husband and get him back on track vs working with others.  I needed to keep our tie-dye business alive and keep our employees employed.

Now it's 2.5 years later and he's 100% healthy.  I've gained 45 pounds, have achy joints, trouble with my breathing and my stamina is gone.

My goals for 2009:
*184 by Christmas (I'll be weighing myself later this week)
*Sugar free by February
*Blogging as much as I can

Thank you for reading and let's enjoy 2009!
