Finally Fit!

After spending the majority of my first fifty years as an overweight couch potato, I decided to turn 50 at a healthy weight and get physically fit. That was nine years ago and after losing 78 lbs., I am a slender, healthy, grandmother who loves to run and bike. I still struggle with food issues and wish I could say that it is easy to keep
the weight off but it takes daily effort. I'm here to further that effort and gain motivation from other people who can appreciate the struggle...

Making the most of the winter that won't let go and heading out to see if I can get a little less wobbly with my cross country skiing both Sat. & Sun.! LOVE the increasing daylight, spring can't be TOO far away, but taking advantage of having the snow stick around long enough to ski on it! :-)
