Hi, my name is Gigi and I am from Connecticut. I'm 64 climbing up to 65. I have been meaning to do something about my weight for a long time and I think I have finally found a great place to be and begin. I am grateful for the years I have had, but have slowed down because of weight. I take care of my 90 year old mother and hold down a part time job. Trying to find time for myself is a challenge, but I am making a New Year's Resolution to do just that! I have included pictures of me and some of my family. We are all spread out so we don't see much of each other. Need to plan a family reunion!

Member Since: 12/30/2007

Fitness Minutes: 340

My Goals:
Since last year I have lost 17 pounds. I think I am becoming more and more motivated. I would like to take a new picture in California with a new slimmer me. I'm hoping to get there in 2009. I am realizing that weight does not come off as quickly as it did in my youth and that sometimes get's the better of me. I keep on plugging away at it though.


My Program:
I am attending TOPS meetings near where I live. Attending meetings help me become accountable for my weight lose or gain. They are a fun group of people. I am also trying to log in my food every day on this website. It really helps to see how many calories I am consuming and where I should be for my goals.



Personal Information:
I enjoy going to movies, seeing shows (see American Idol pictures on my album page) walking on the beach, reading and being with friends. I am striving to have more time to myself. I'm practicing! Life as a caregiver doesn't give one much breathing room.


Other Information:
My favorite movie....I've had several, but usually those with happy endings. I loved "Titanic" and "Love Story." (now I'm dating myself) Hee hee. I haven't been to a movie in a theater for over a year! It's time!

    Hi Gigi, I hope you are doing ok. I just stopped by to say hello and let you know I thought about you today and prayed for you. I found this little quote and wanted to share it with my friends.
    Hugs and Prayers,
    Sherrilou

    The language of friendship is not words, but meanings. It is an intelligence above language. Do not keep the alabaster box of your love and friendship sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving, cheering words while their ears can hear them, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier. The kind things you mean to say when they are gone, say before they go.
    --George William Childs

    Special People

    On Valentines Day, we think of people
    who have cheered and encouraged us,
    who go out of their way
    to be kind and caring,
    who have enriched our lives
    just by being themselves.
    You are such a person.
    I am so happy You are my friend.
