Joy Renewed!

I'm ready to get back in shape so I can play with my new granddaughter!

I'm 51 years old and work as a counselor for adults and children experiencing emotional difficulties. It's a very sedentary job, and very emotionally draining as well. I was widowed in 2008. My husband had a five year battle with cancer. My husband had always been very active and health conscious. We'd go to the gym together, take walks, and eat very healthy meals.

I'm 51 years old and work as a counselor for adults and children experiencing emotional difficulties. It's a very sedentary job, and very emotionally draining as well. I was widowed in 2008. My husband had a five year battle with cancer. My husband had always been very active and health conscious. We'd go to the gym together, take walks, and eat very healthy meals. After he passed, I just couldn't get myself to do those things again. During that time, I also was experiencing empty nest as my kids went to college and got married. All of that led to a major life style change for me. I was no longer cooking for 5, but just for me. I ended up munching/grazing instead of preparing healthy meals. Plus, I was emotionally eating.

I'm ready to change that as I'm moving forward in life! I'm getting settled in new routines and making positive changes. I have my new granddaughter who is my motivation. With God's help and strength, I know I can do this!

Just stopping through, I just joined the Chesapeake VA team and am hoping to become a team leader and try to get it back on track. If you are interested in helping me to turn it around, please stop by my page and lets chat a bit.
