My name is Lori. I live in North Aurora, IL. It's about 45 minutes west of Chicago. I have a daughter, Lena, a sophomore at Boston University. I have three dogs. Lilo is my 10-year-old black lab mix. Zed is my 10-year-old chihuahua/mini-pin mix. Jax just recently came to my house. He's 5ish and a chihuahua mix. He's also diabetic. I'm diabetic too, so he and I are helping each other control our diabetes.
I weigh 290 pounds and plan to get down somewhere around the 160s. I started at 335. Although I want to lose weight, I'm really working on eating better and exercising. I'm currently focused on getting 5 fruits and vegetables a day. I'm also walking for at least 30 minutes a day. I'm going to add strength training and yoga soon.
I'm excited to connect with people who want to live healthier lives.

Welcome, NSK. Things are slow here lately - but I trust they will pick up.
Good for you on your determination. A 9 year maintenance success! Are you somewhere that is going to get cold soon? I was laughing thinking how funny it would be if you were in the deep south
I look forward to seeing you on the threads. I'm back from two weeks of poor eating on a road trip....looking forward to getting back into the groove in the next few days.
