I am midwife and I was working and living in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. I moved there from Florida in November 2008 and left in September 2011. I’m now working in China.
I’ve traveled extensively, and especially these few last years. I, like so many other people, battle with my weight… I set up this blog to not only share my life and adventures, but to share my triumphs (2011 Note… Adkins didn’t work out.. LOL)… (2012 Note… Dukan Diet is working very well!)
I am mom to Nick, Jenni & Tiffany, who somehow have all turned out to be really super cool adults! And grandma to Celeste, Sydnie, Sadie, Shane, Sofia and JR. I’ve been fortunate enough to “catch” all 6 of them… Celeste in my birth center and the rest are all home born babies! Sadie and JR were born in the water.
I’m 48 and know that I need to be in optimal physical shape on the up climb to 50.
I walked the Camino de Santiago in April and May of 2010 and blogged from the trail during that time… taking my trusty iPhone with me and hoping for wireless internet every once in awhile! (been there, done that, it was awesome, for the most part!)
So take this walk with me and enjoy… comments appreciated!
Update April 2011… still fighting the with the weight! LOL
Update October 2011… on Dukan Diet for 7+ weeks, much success!
Update February 2012… On Dukan diet for 177 days now and I’ve lost 66+ pounds!
