Hi, my name is Rose.
I'm 59 and have fought my weight for almost 30 years now, since putting on over 120lbs in 15 months. I suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol (both controlled by meds), an underactive thyroid, and some physical disability due to sciatica, osteoporosis and a knee and hip both needing replacement.
My goal is to lose 162lbs to get back to what was my "normal" weight for 15 years, and hopefully be able to stop taking most of my meds. Some days I think I must rattle!
However, I LOVE my life! I have 2 acres of land and share it with my hubby, 3 cats, 5 dogs, 4 goats, and numerous chickens. I am blessed with many friends all over the world, have 3 children and 9 grandchildren, and am in my element now.
I love history, write poetry, enjoy reading thrillers of all sorts, am a strong believer in early childhood education and that childhood should be a magical time.
I'm also an Avon lady, so if you want to have Avon delivered to your door directly from the company, or if you'd like to start selling it yourself, just check out my website at:
www.youravon.com/rosemarydempsey to buy AVON
and put rosemarydempsey in the box, to sell. If you join this way, email me so that I can send you some FREE AVON to help get you started.
My goals with Avon, are to get a new vehicle (got Sebastian, my Land Rover Discovery II in August 2007!!! YAY!) , pay for new china cabinets for my country kitchen and new windows for the whole house. I also want to make Executive Unit Leader
My new goals with AVON are to end this year with full-time incomes from part-time work, and to get all our bills paid off.
To lose weight and become healthier and fitter.
For now, counting calories and moving a bit more. I have hip, knee and back probs so energetic exercise is out of the question right now. I''m trying to make sure and do SOMETHING every day though.
I'm in Greenville, SC. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org ... because I have 4 pet Nubian goats. I have a bit of a backyard barnyard with chickens, have 3 rescued cats, 5 rescued dogs (all of whom have lost all memory of their lowly beginnings and now consider my husband and I their personal slaves, LOL)

Hi, I hope you are better. I am glad you can talk about your feelings. That is also important to help get over the hurdle. I grew up in a family that had issues like this, and it really hurt us all. My mom is still burden by it today, but I only listen for so long, cuz I am gone now. And what my dad did to all of us I dont' have to take anymore and he knows it. My own marriage is important to me, and I hope to think my husband and I will talk it through if we had any problems. So far so good, but we are only 8 years!!! 12 years total!! But things change and you have to work things out that feels right for your marriage. And you seem to know what works well for you. I hate to see women upset over things like this, because we don't deserve it. Keep that head up. And keep it up about becoming healthy. I wish I could visit your farm with my kids. They love farm animals!!! What kid doesn't!!!! Have a great weekend.
