My name's Michelle and I'm 36 yrs old. I live in California with my husband, our 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am an Pit Bull advocate. They really are AWESOME dogs!! I have been a licensed Cosmetologist/Manicurist for 18 years and I absolutely love what I do. My husband and I have been together for 12 years and during that time, we both put on a lot of weight. In early 2011, we started a weight loss journey. He's lost 80 pounds and I've lost 90 pounds. During the journey, I really got into cooking. I'm always on the hunt for healthy and low fat recipes. We have been able to maintain our weight because of changing the way I cook. We look forward to keeping the weight off and living a healthy life style!
