I didn't mind being "gordita", but my doc said I should lose the weight for health. I am post menopausal, married 37 years before my husband passed away in Feb of 2011. He loved me the way I was and so do the people I've come to know and love during my mission trips. I am not trying to impress anyone, but I want to be around for my grandkids and for my extended family in Peru
People can see more pix - and videos - at Photobucket.com. My album is mumz2you. and follow my mission trips in Peru at http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/

Fitness Minutes: 52,748

My Goals:
To reach and stay around 180, maybe even as low as 160 if possible, SOME time by 2017. I may never be able to fit into my 40 year old wedding dress, but I can at least hope to be fit and healthy for my remaining years of service.


My Program:
My daughter, Abi, and I got in this together, by changing our eating habits and developing an exercise habit. I am trying to exercise more regularly and eat more "freggies".



Personal Information:
I was born in Texas, but I''ve lived in Rochester most of my life. I became a Christian my senior year of high school (Spencerport class of ''71) and met Ansel at an Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship retreat during my 2nd year at SUNY at New Paltz. We married less than a year later (Oct 27, ''73) and after losing our first child went on to have 3 others - Abi (12 -77) Ben (8-83) and Cassie (10-86). Ben married October '06 .Abi has given us our first 2 grandchildren-and yes, by the same man!Our son Ben gave us a granddaughter, Penny, in Sept 07 and grandson Jack in February 09! My husband Ansel passed away in February of 2011, but the Lord united me with a wonderful Peruvian man in August of same year, Levi Utia. We tried to have a civil ceremony either here or there. But we encountered so many obstacles. We finally married in August 2016, and are now in the process of getting his spouse visa.


Other Information:
I've made 11 mission trips to Peru, and will gladly explain how I became involved to anyone who has ears to hear! I have "second homes" in Pucallpa, Lima, Chiclayo, and Iquitos (just wish I could go more often) and I have cultivated some very close friendships there.
Anyone interested in seeing photos and videos from my trip in June-July 07 and to Machu Picchu in Feb of 07 can see them at the Photobucket.com album under mumz2you . I have two blogs - the bilingual : http://hermana-shelley.blogspot.com/ and my 'Perunews" http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/ where I have blogged about my most recent trip - complete with photos. Stop by and read all about it! I will try to update the photos in my gallery, so stop by again!

    The floors needed attention. With a dog and a cat inside, if they are not vacuumed regularly, soon there will be lengths of hair rolling about on the vinyl floors. This was happening in the guest bathroom and in the kitchen along anything that was on the floor.

    I tried to find the free candy coupon today to give to hubby, but it must have only been an offer for yesterday.

    I try to get the free things because most of it is sugary and give it to him since I don't buy any of it. If it is here, I will get it and eat it. He can get it and eat it out of the house.

    Yes, I hate it when the internet is out. The cable company was doing upgrades the last two nights between 12-6 AM.

    I went to the Urology Center on Monday and had to enter information into a handheld computer with a stylus. The last phase of processing my information was going on when the internet connection was lost. The receptionist reset it, but there were people waiting to use it. The Center has gone paperless. I don't like that at all, because then I cannot see what they write about the visit.

    I woke up today with a sinus infection trying to establish itself. I drank apple cider vinegar water and my throat soreness is gone, but I still am having discomfort above the left eye. I hope to try to get some chores done in spite of it.

    I know my body was greatly weakened by all of the vomiting I had on Sunday.

    Everything we do in life is a journey. It’s a process. And sometimes, processes are just plain hard. . . . learn to embrace the journey . . . embrace the struggle. Nathan Mitchell
