Everyday small choices lead to everyday small victories!

At 48.5, I'm determined to get my health back. I've struggled with injuries and physical limitations, but seeing age 50 on the not-so-distant horizon only shores up my resolve!

I have 2 grown kids (yep, I'm an empty nester) and a perfect grandson who was born 12/27/2013! I'm a bridge inspector and office administrator. I'm a cradle Catholic and a knitter. I have been in a relationship with my very significant other for a dozen years.

Improve my overall health

FEEL better & more energetic

Improve upper body strength

Slim down, especially in belly, hips and thighs

Look better in a swimsuit for 2016 vacation to Panama

I'm eating healthier, including snacks. I'm drinking MUCH more water every day, all day long.

My other big change is to GET MOVING!!

My program is more life changes than short-term goal oriented.

25#: massage, new sneakers & bras
30#: new pajamas

Personal Information:
I'm from a very small Texas town. I've lived in the big city - and I love this way of life. It has its disadvantages, but they are FAR outweighed by its advantages.

I have a daughter in college, studying biology (forensic medicine), and a son who's a musician in Lubbock, Tx.

Other Information:
I'm a voracious reader. I always have one book in progress on my Kindle or in paper form, AND one in progress in audio form. I listen to books as I drive and as I get ready for work in the morning.
I'm a somewhat new knitter. I like to make scarves because they're mindless and satisfying, but I rarely wear them myself.

You deserve a NEW WARDROBE! After all you deserve the reward and probably those "skinny" clothes are probably out of style and you need to jazz up the new you! emoticon

We were traveling from April 10th to 24th. I've missed seeing you on Texas and Fleecy Fiber N Fitness Fun bc I couldn't get to my emails with my iPad. I've been to the Apple store and think we have it syncing again. We're home and retiring to whatever "normal" is for us. I hope you are well and just distracted with other things calling your name. I met Jaq in person in SC Congaree National Park. She is awesome, and so talented. Wonderful visit with Jaq and her dog Zander. My Joe enjoys meeting my internet friends, too. Hope to see you posting soon. Hugs.
