Hi, My name is Shirley. I've been overweight all my life so I don't expect to wind up looking like a skinny minny model. I have a wonderful husband, 5 children, 13 grandchildren, and 2 greatgrandsons. I will soon be 65 years old.

August 5, 2010
I've been away from Sparks for several months due to having our grandson with us. I think I'm ready to start up again. I gained some of my weight back but not as much as I thought I did but still disappointed in myself because of the weight gain. We recently found out we will be great grandparents 4 more times!! Means I have a lot of crocheting to do lol.
We took our grandson back to Oregon in June and stayed for 3 weeks before coming home to Alaska. It was a wonderful visit. I can't wait to go back to see our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Member Since: 7/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,519

My Goals:
To weigh less than 200 lbs.
To look good in a dress.
Not look like Buddah when I am sitting in an easy chair.
To be able to cross my legs, not just my feet, lol.
To tie my shoes and have the bow in the middle of the shoe instead of the side of the shoe.

My Program:
I am watching my caloric intake and making sure I drink at least 8 glasses of water. Eating more healthy.
I plan on walking more and to try and motivate myself to do some sort of exercise everyday.

Personal Information:
I do a lot of crocheting and some quilting. I have a vegetable and flower garden every summer that I love to fiddle with. We have a 5 year old springer spaniel named Sara that we have spoiled but we love her. We also have a gray cat named Shadow that we have had for many years that is also spoiled and that we love.

Other Information:
"Your life is what you make it"

Things happen for a reason.

If you're not happy in your job then quit and get into something you will like. After all, it's something you will have to do for years to come.

These are the main things I always told our kids.
