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!

    Hey there Gigi, I just stopped by to let you know I prayed for you and your family this morning. While I was doing my devotions you came to my mind, so I knew you needed prayer. God really does care about you and He wants you to remember that. You are doing great ! Don't be too hard on yourself, and I hope you are feeling better. It's time you had a good day and nothing to go wrong. May God bless you bunches today.
    Your friend,

    Hi Gigi! I noticed that you are having a struggle with your journey and wanted to stop by and let you know that we are here for you at all hours...I am the "night shift leader", so I send messages to those who can't sleep. lol I congratulate you for getting your page up and running and want to remind you that it really takes "baby steps" to get the program succeeding and I know you can do it.
    Hugs,
    Kathy

    I just came by to say hello, and to let you know you are in my prayers. After reading your page, you do have your hands full, however you are going to feel better eating the right way. Just know we are all in this together, you can do it, and if I can be of any help at all, please let me know.
