I love to be alone. I love to paint. I have been with my husband for 19 years. I love the smell of rain in the desert. I had my first child when I was 19. I hate raw tomatoes. I do not count calories. I do not like to run but I love to walk for miles. I used to have intense panic attacks. I do not drink alcohol. I love to read. I love to watch movies. I love the smell of fresh clean laundry. I gained over 50 pounds with my first pregnancy and 12 with my second. My hair used to be very long. I hate to wear make up. I already have grey hair. I could sit for hours and organize anything. I appreciate a good strong hand shake and eye contact when I meet someone for the first time. I love roses but hate the smell of rose oil. I bite my nails. I love to draw. I took ballet as a child and loved it. I drove a school bus for 6 years. I lost over 50 pounds about 6 years ago and gained it all back because I didn’t change my lifestyle like I am now. I am forever grateful for the things my mom has taught me about life. I try to walk with my dogs every day. I have learned that if I wait and am open for inspiration, it will come on its own time. I love big baggy sweaters. I have dyed my hair, red, pink, purple, blue, and black. I make lists every day. I appreciate it when people are blunt and honest with me. I sacrificed a career in order to raise my children myself. I hate spicy food. My biggest issue with weight gain has been my tendency to binge. When I get really mad I cry and I hate it because it stops me from expressing myself the way I would like.
