Hello Wellness Universe Members and Friends!
I moved to central NJ in September 2016 from Staten Island, NY and I love it here!
My formal background is I have an A.S. in Biology and B.S. in Health Services Administration. I worked in the healthcare field as an Accounts Receivable Manager for 16 years. Once I realized that I would always work for the other person unless I did something about it, I looked for ways to put my passion into helping others.
My passion in life is helping others. I love children and animals and try to find ways to help in stopping their abuse that sadly goes on today. Since I know the pain of infertility, I am on a mission to help other women who are going through this or have gone through it.
I am a vegetarian for over 25 years and try my hardest to eat vegan at home. It is because of my love for animals that I became a vegetarian. I like to read, dance and be silly at times and spend time meeting other like-minded people. I am married to my best friend, Dave, for 14 years. I have great faith and thank God for all His blessings.
My husband, @DaveWhitmore, inspired me to finally do something about my weight and stick with it. He is a type 2 diabetic and was on Metformin, when the doctor wanted to added another medication that would have destroyed his liver. He had enough and finally starting to do something about it. He joined My Fitness Pal, turned walking into running and he lost a total of 70 lbs and went down four pant sizes! The best? He was able to get off his medication for four years!
For me, I have been overweight since my teenage years. I tried everything - going to the gym, Weight Watchers, Medifast, etc. It worked while I was on it, but then the weight would slowly creep back up. Watching Dave, inspired me. Four years ago, at the age of 47, I finally had enough. I joined my husband…
