All about me......

I am retired and a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and I'm sure I am a few more things I don't even know about. I have been on this weight loss journey for most of my life and a few times have even reached my goal.

At this point I am pre-diabetic and still need to lose quite a bit of weight so it is time to get serious again. This time will be forever as I cannot keep doing this or feeling disgusted with myself.

I will continue to walk everyday ...

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will do some kind of exercise every day. I will weight/measure all food including condiments. I will be accountable to myself and weigh in in front of another person to keep myself accountable.

My goal is to lose 5% of my body weight for this challenge and maybe a little more for good measure!

Personal Information:
Hi -

My name is Donna. My DH of 47 years and I live in central Florida most of the year. We have a little cabin in the mountains where we like to go and escape the summer heat.

I love to read, play computer games, garden and walk. I spend most Saturday mornings at the local yard sales and am forever searching for that special treasure.

My DH and I like to travel - especially cruises. We like unpacking once and sleeping in the same bed every night. And someone else takes care of everything else. But for 2014 we plan to see the USA. We've done quite a bit but have places we want to re-visit and take the grand with us this time.

We are blessed with two grown children (one son and one daughter) and a sweet teen-age granddaughter. We love spending time together and try to take the grand everywhere we go. She still likes to be with us so we consider each day a gift.

Love your intro. I, too am retired, & am very involved w/my grandkids, 40 acre pasture, large yard, & community which is why I like to be very energetic.

We can do this.

One day @ a time. One step @ a time.
