I'm 51, have a full time job that involves a lot of sitting, and have let the weight creep up over the years. I used to be very active and loved to hike, run, and swim, but now my weight and several chronic injuries are making those activities difficult. I want to regain an active lifestyle and get back to a healthier weight.
Lose 40 pounds
Run a 5K
Fit into my old jeans
Tracking what I eat
Eating vegetarian at home, meat only when eating out
Cutting way back on junk food
Exercising several times a week -- lots of walking, hopefully transitioning to running
I am 51 years old
I have no children
I am "mom" to 4 large dogs, 3 older ones and 1 very active puppy
I enjoy going to the farmer's market, reading, playing computer games, and hanging out with my dogs
I try to buy organic whenever possible to avoid chemicals and support local farmers
Favorite TV shows are Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, and Grimm

Thanksgiving – All In A Word
T for time to be together
Turkey, talk and tangy weather.
H for harvest stored away
Home, and hearth and holiday.
A for autumn’s frosty art,
And abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors and November,
Nice things, new things to remember.
K for kitchen, kettle’s croon.
Kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights and sounds,
And something special that abounds.
That spells THANKS – for joy in living
And a jolly good Thanksgiving!
