Hi, my name is Jill and I am a Mom of 3 grown sons. Also Have a Beautiful DIL and an adorable Grandson and Granddaughter. Due to health reasons I had to retire from my job a couple of years ago. Getting strong and healthy is my main goal right now. I'm not very mobile due to a broken bone in my spine, arthritis and bad knees. I either use a cane or walker to get around. I need/want to lose about 120 #s (I'm 5'8"). I have to do chair exercises as can't stand for too long due to my weak back. I'm trying to get my life back on track and stop emotional eating and use portion control. I want to be healthy again and know with SP, friends and family--and God's help it is doable. I really love all the encouragement, knowledge and motivation SP gives me. I still want to travel and be able to walk well and believe it's possible with a weight loss from eating healthy and exercising 15 minutes or more a day. I want to see my grandchildren grow up . . .
