"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering." - Ida Scott Taylor, American Author

Today is the first day of the rest of my life . . . It's time to get back on track.

Member Since: 4/20/2010

My Goals:
I need to lose at least 35 pounds and exercise at least 30 minutes a day 3 days a week.

My Program:
"If it is to be, it is up to me." - Unknown

I'm taking my journey step by step, one day at a time.

Personal Information:
I was born & raised on a small farm in Mid-Michigan north of Lansing.

For almost 50 years I have lived in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan.

I retired February, 2010. I have worked as a receptionist, legal secretary, office manager and administrative assistant.

I am married to my best friend - we started dating in 1989 but didn't get married until 2000. My husband has numerous health issues so I am a caregiver for him as necessary.

I have one son who is married to a wonderful woman who I'm proud to call "daughter" and one granddaughter from my son's previous marriage.

I have seven siblings - 2 older brothers and 5 younger sisters. I am best friends with one of my sisters' and I spend a lot of time with her and her family at our family's farm.

Other Information:
My favorite color is Purple - any shade from dark to light. I love all purple flowers but my favorite is purple roses.

I am an avid reader. I use tablet e-readers with both the Nook & Kindle Apps. Since I don't like to spend a lot of money on books,

I also like to do Sudoku and word search puzzles and play Yahtzee.

    Believe that you can run farther or faster
    Believe that you're young enough
    old enough, strong enough
    and so on to accomplish
    everything you want to do.
    Don't let worn-out beliefs stop
    you from moving beyond
