In the past few years I injured my leg,got a divorce, moved to Texas and stopped smoking. All these things have impacted my weight to the point that I gained almost 85 pounds in 3 years. I've taken off a little over 15 of that but have quite a way to go.
I have a 32 yr old son, Ryan who is a business analyst/IT project manager in St. Louis, and a 30 yr old daughter, Meridith who is a Director of Finance for a hotel in Beverly Hills. I don't work outside the home, but I am active in Greyhound rescue and have e of my own, Fred, Exley and Petey who is a rescued whippet. I am madly in love with my DBF whom I call the Bobster.
I recently decided, no more dieting. Just smaller portions of healthy food. I've got aches and pains in my bum knee, my ankles and my hips and I know getting some of the weight off will help that a lot.

Fitness Minutes: 3,757

My Goals:
I know being overweight impacts my sleep habits, my energy level and my joints. I want to improve in these three areas.

My Program:
Exercise: I walk my dogs at least 45 minutes a day.

I recently invested in the BEST piece of equipment, a water rower, but during the hot weather, water aerobics in my pool is actually not too agonizing!

I have always been a healthy eater. Just ate too much so now I am trying to be conscious of portion sizes. Plan ahead and write it down.

Personal Information:
I am now living in Plano Texas with my 2 greyhounds and 1 whippet and 1 boyfriend.

Other Information:
I adore reading, especially mysteries and books that make me smile. Not that much of a television person except for a CNN and Fox News addiction.

I love to travel, especially cruising, and have been on over 50 of them. I want to visit Turkey before I die.

    Thank you for letting me know about buying the vita muffin mix. Will give it a try especially since it will save some money and hopefully it will be cool enough soon to not dread turning on the oven.

    Love the picture of you in the purple outfit and of course the Red Hat sets it off. You look great!
