Howdy, from the small town of Dickinson,Texas! I'm a stay-at-home wife/mother & have been married for over 40 years, resulting in 7 children & 8 grandchildren so far! I was a homeschooling mom for 32 years & recently "retired" with the high school graduation of my youngest...but with an 18 year old son & a 21 year old daughter still at home, our household stays very busy with church, family, friends & juggling everyone's crazy schedule!

I never really struggled with my weight until menopause.
Maybe that's why they call it 'the change' because it sure changes things! Tracking calories & exercise don't control my weight like they used to. I still do both, but I have to work much harder to achieve much less. An aging metabolism is NOT fun!

I found SparkRecipes first & then SparkPeople! I enjoy learning about fitness & healthy eating and SP helps me do both!

My Goals:
I exercise so I can stay strong & healthy and be able to lift, run & squat when I want to! #functionalfitness

My goal is to MAINTAIN a weight of 134-139 lbs. and to regularly exercise...both cardio and strength training.

By my 60th birthday in Dec 2017, I want to be able to do 10 military style push-ups and I'm working on it!



My Program:
I workout at home & have a treadmill, weights & assorted exercise equipment. I particularly enjoy the kettlebell swing & step aerobics! I love my Fitbit...though sometimes I wonder who is the boss...it or me?!



Personal Information:
Pioneer Baptist Church is an integral part of my life and I am grateful to God for saving me.

I'm a native West Virginian transplanted to the great state of Texas!

Other stuff....I live in a log house and home educated all my children.




Other Information:
Highest Weight 03-12-2015 165.5 lbs

I have struggled within about a 30-35 lb weight range since menopause in 2008.

My goal is to keep a better handle on my post-menopausal weight and be able to MAINTAIN it this time!
