I'm a mother of 3 grown children, 1 granddaughter and another grandchild expected in June 2014. In my late 50's and since closing my brick and morter business almost 7 years ago, getting no exercise. Needless to say my butt has grown the size of my chair.

I've been a Realtor in Silicon Valley for over 22 yrs. and as I get back into it more and more, I'm more and more conscious of my health and my weight. 2 yrs. ago we moved to Palm Desert, and I am fastly becoming a 'desert rat'. It doesn't take long to get acclimated to the heat here.

I've dieted off and on my whole life. I've put it on and taken it off more times... This time I'm starting slow, changing habits first, then I'll worry about becoming more structured in my weight loss efforts.

Member Since: 12/27/2007

Fitness Minutes: 2,638

My Goals:
I would like to lose approx. 70 lbs. for the last time. I would like to be an older, sexier, skinnier senior.
I would like to improve my health to last to a ripe old age, so I can keep up with my new grandchildren and great nephews and niece. LOL

My Program:
I am changing habits slowly trying to make them last for a life time. I'm hoping to just start with the baby steps, leading to more of a structured plan of action later. Already I can see just the difference going back to tracking is making.

Personal Information:
Originally from Penn. I have been in Calif. so long I may as well be native. I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since moving here when I was just 16 and heavy.

I have 3 grown up children that I adore, am caregiver to my mother who lives with us, and significant other to a very good roommate.

Other Information:
I don't get much chance to watch movies or anything. I do a lot of online self education for the businesses I own and for self improvement (I need quite a bit. LOL)
Music of choice is country, easy listening, and oldies but goodies.
TV- I love comedy, lighthearted stuff, and good sitcoms where I don't have to think.
