Ten years of living a more healthy lifestyle through Sparkpeople and I am still learning and absorbing changes with each new day. The weight is slowly going away but my body is feeling so much more healthy with better nutrition and increased activity. The seasonal 5% challenges are a big part of my journey and the support offered there keeps me reaching for my goals.

I am a 71 year old baby boomer born, raised, and currently living in the "Show-Me State of Missouri", after a twenty year journey as a military wife. I recently semi-retired from the field of rental property management.

I am a proud mother & grandmother. My daughter lives just a few miles from me, a granddaughter who will soon start her junior year of college. A son and his wife that reside in Arkansas along with two grandsons and a great grandson. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with us on earth but is always in our hearts.

I love motivational quotes and Sparkpeople has several that I enjoy and try to implement in my daily life.
