I was born in 1969 in the state of Virginia, had a great childhood, grew up in the country, fabulous parents, can’t really complain in that department, except my mother died unexpectedly from heart disease when I was just 17 years old. However; my amazing father is still alive and well and I visit him in Virginia as often as time and money allow.

My entire life, I have struggled with something called SED (Selective Eating Disorder).  This caused a myriad of issues, one of which is morbid obesity.  I topped out at 325 pounds.  I’ve now lost over 150 pounds and embracing lifestyle changes, one habit at a time.

I love my family.  I enjoy going to the gym, but I also really enjoy outdoor things such as hiking, camping, swimming … visiting state parks, taking pictures, etc.

I love writing, whether it’s technical manuals or poetry or just this blog, it doesn’t matter, I love to write. People ask me all of the time when I am going to publish a book, so I think I need to do that a.s.a.p.

Another passion of mine is volunteering and non-profit organizations.  I even have a certificate in the leadership of non-profit organizations.  I often host foreign exchange students from other countries in our home, and I have been working with them for over a decade.

Well, that’s it in a nutshell I guess.  Read on, join me in my journey, and try not to judge too harshly when you see me make my picky-eating face 🙂
