Hello all! My Name is April. I am happily married. We have 3 great boys ages 12, 11 and 2. (mine, his & ours) We have a very busy life. And i guess bad food choices is what got me here. I have never really been "skinny" but i was a size 12/14 is highschool. I would give anything to be that size again! but i have my goals set for a little more than that! We are always on the go. between baseball, football the gym, and church.. we have something everynight! I love my family and thank God everyday for them. They drive me crazy but keep me grounded all at the same time.
