My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.

Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.

Personal Information:
Married, 3 children, 3 grandchildren and too many pounds!

I love to travel, read, go to the theatre, concerts, but I'd like to do all these without so much effort to get there. The extra weight is a drag on the woman I used to be and wish to be again.

    Hello, Jeanne, my fellow dancer,

    Although I haven't danced much lately. Going to get back to it though. How have you been? Are you keeping the weight off and healthy? I hope you are well.

    Haha! I can see why you'd think you were talking to my twin. No...I "quit" the team a while back but kept most of my small group of friends except for....well, forget about that...
    Then I found I was still reading the daily messages and interested in everybody's lives so I rejoined. I wanted the full connection with people I care about. I thought it was enough to be connected without a team and by Facebook and e-mail but...I was missing too much of the daily sharing.
