Wow… I just realized I haven’t updated this “About Me” in 5 years!
I moved home to Florida in September 2012. Since then I have traveled to more than a dozen countries as a traveling midwife, delivering babies for expats living in countries where they may not get an optimum birth. That’s where I come in 🙂
I successfully completed the Dukan Diet and lost 111 pounds and kept that weight off for 23 months and then started back-sliding when a broken foot and other “life” issues happened. I have since gained back 80 of those pounds 😦 I am working towards the goal of going back on Dukan in September. Keeping weight off for some of us is such a hard thing to do.
I now have a 7th grandchild, Steele, who is nearly 3 years old. And I’m now 52. And I plan on walking the Camino again next summer.
So that’s the update and I’m sticking to it! 🙂
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 Jose. 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 Jose 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!
