A new beginning

Hi. My name is Barb and I'm on the journey of a lifetime. I want and need to get healthier. In order to do that I have a lot of weight to lose, which means I need to eat healthier and get a move on it! I need to focus on fitness. I have the power to change my life around, and I intend to do just that.

I am still employed full time. I have 2 children (son/daughter) and 3 grandchildren (2 grandsons/granddaughter). My daughter and her children (1 GS/GD) live with me. I am divorced.

I have many interests - besides my family and my church - which include reading and art. I love to draw, paint, colored pencils, water color pencils, water colors - you name it. I'm not professing to be a great artist. I'm merely telling you about a passion I have and a fun, expensive!, hobby that I have.

I need help on this journey. Thanks for your help and encouragement.

Babs, I think the hardest thing for me is patience, too. I want it done now, not tomorrow or next week or next year. NOW!! Do you think it has something to do with our German heriatge? I can just hear my Mother and Grandmother saying the same thing. I said "Now!!!" LOL! Thanks for stopping by my blogs today. The earlier ones I wrote during the 5% challenge, but the latest one is just because! Hope you're having a good week...tomorrow is Hump Day, so it should be down hill from there! emoticon

Thanks so much for the manicure. It's something I wouldn't thought of, and it's appreciated a great deal. I'm doing better. Got out today for exercises and that helps tremendously. You are a good person.

Babs...what a wonderful, thoughtful gift to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. The gift card just kept stretching to pay for a great night of entertainment!
