I am a horseback riding instructor with my own barn in Scottsville NY. Mother of 2 older girls. One is married with a son and the other was married on June 21 of 2009 . She just had her first son 5/9/11.

In 2009 I had finally decided that I need a lifestyle change, not just a diet.


My doctor is so pleased that all my stats are well within normal ranges now as am I. From pre-diabetic to normal in 2 years!!!

I still am not diabetic in spite of the gain but don't want to get back there ever again...


Thank you Spark People!

My Goals:
My goals for 2014 and beyond:

Not to beat myself up. To realistically do what I can and not try to be perfect, which gets me in trouble.

I will lose at least 10 pounds this year, hopefully before May 30.

To get fit and be able to do whatever outdoors things my husband wants to do.
Kayaking, Hiking, whatever...


My Program:
To use all the trackers.

To keep to the calories and eating vege's and fruits everyday.

To exercise 3 days a week with some type of aerobic exercise.

Personal Information:
I live near Scottsville, NY on our horse farm. I teach English horseback riding.

I am married with 2 adult girls, who are married as well and I have one grandchild, a boy, Ryan, who is now almost 10 years old, and a new grandson, born on 5/9/11!

My older daughter and her husband and child live in the house with us. The other girl has her own home in Leroy, with her husband and new baby boy, Shane.

My husband and I have been married for 41 years ( Dec.) and are best friends.




Other Information:
"Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

Hello! Thank you so much for the SparkGoodie and your kind words. I really appreciate it! (and wow! We're practically neighbors! How often can you say that on the internet? heh)

Best of luck to you!
