Hello, I'm Marti from mid-state Michigan. I am a divorced mother of 3 with 11 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild (and another due in April 2015).

I enjoy reading, visiting with friends, needle crafts like knitting and crochet, and Dancing with the Stars. :)

Hello, I'm Marti from mid-state Michigan. I am a divorced mother of 3 with 11 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild (and another due in April 2015).

I enjoy reading, visiting with friends, needle crafts like knitting and crochet, and Dancing with the Stars. :)

I retired four years ago from the corporate world in order to pursue my dream of becoming a published novelist. Happy to say I achieved that goal in 2013 with 2 books published that year. Another was published in early spring 2014.

Then, I went to work for a non-profit Student Exchange company. I love the work, but all the desk time enabled me to pack back on the pounds I'd lost on Spark People in 2013. I really don't need that as I still had plenty more I had to lose on SP. So I'm back with my Flexbit Zip in place and my trackers on my iPhone.

My goal in 2015 is to kick it up a notch and lose the weight I gained back AND the rest of what I wanted to lose.

To lose 50 lbs. by my birthday.

My Program:
I'm doing the hundred day challenge where you pick 5 exercises to do faithfully. You start with one rep on Day 1 and add a rep each day. I'll let you know how that works.

Other Information:
I'm not much of a TV watcher, but I never miss Dancing with the Stars when it's on. I love music and want to get fit enough to dance again.

Thank you for your kind words, just upset me because it has already been 2.5 months since surgery and can not seem to get any better. I can not will myself to get better. Dr says I may need more surgery and I think things are heading that way.

Hi Marti, Welcome to the Grey Wolves team! We're a bit nutty but harmless. I'm glad you joined us. I've added you as a spark friend as it helps me to keep up with what the other teammates are doing. Nice to have another midwesterner here (I'm near Chicago).
