Hi! I’m Rose though everyone calls me Rosie. I’m a 31 year old wife and mom of one living in Northeastern PA, USa with my two dogs, cat, cockatiel, and 9, yes 9 guinea pigs. This year I have decided to make my life better. In order to do this I have made 37 New Year’s Resolutions. Yes 37. So I am ambitious. I want to use this blog to detail my journey to wellness and bettement in my life and keep me accountable. So to start the following is a list of my 2012 New Years Resolutions:

1. To lose 1 pound per week. My starting weight is 297.6 pounds. I want to lose 52 pounds by the end of the year. Many of the following New Years Resolutions will help me to achieve that goal.
2. To drink lots more water and cut down on soda
3. To eat breakfast every day
