"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering." - Ida Scott Taylor, American Author

Today is the first day of the rest of my life . . . It's time to get back on track. I'm a lifetime Weight Watchers' member who needs to get back to my goal weight. I have around 50 pounds to lose. I've done it before so I know I can do it again!

3rd Goal = 30 pounds
4th Goal = 40 pounds
Final Goal = 50 pounds

"If it is to be, it is up to me." - Unknown

I'm taking my journey step by step, one day at a time.

Personal Information:
I was born & raised in a small town in Mid-Michigan north of Lansing.

For over 40 years I have lived in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan.

I retired February, 2010.

I am married to my best friend - we've been together since 1989 but didn't get married until 2000.

I have one son who is married to a wonderful woman who I'm proud to call "daughter" and one granddaughter from my son's previous marriage.

I am best friends with one of my sisters' and I spend a lot of time with her and her family at our family's farm.

Other Information:
My favorite color is Purple - any shade from dark to light. I love all purple flowers but my favorite is purple roses.

I am an avid reader. I use tablet e-readers with both the Nook & Kindle Apps. Since I don't like to spend a lot of money on books, I love Nook's Free Friday Blogs and Kindle's Free eBooks & Tips since they introduce me to new authors.

I also like to do suduko, crossword, and word search puzzles and play Yahtzee.
