I am divorced, have 5 children, ranging in age of 42,39,37,36,& 27..i have 8 grandchildren ranging in age of 10 months,4, 6(2),7,10,16,&21. I want to be around for quite some time to enjoy my family. I am the youngest now of 11 children, recently losing my youngest brother, i now have living 1 brother and 6 sisters. My hobbies are dancing, bowling, swimming (aerobics at the Y),scrabble, euchre, and spending time with my family...i love to cook and try new recipes, as well as spending time at the computer talking to my family and friends.
I would like to lose 50 lbs by fall so that i can live a much healthier lifestyle. I want to get back into exercising and making it part of my life. I want to make new friends that i can keep for life that are an encouragement to me.
I have joined the "Y" and SP
I am from Rockford, MI, just 10 miles north of Grand Rapids, MI. My name is Mary Ann Libby, more known as Mary Ann Roach...(I remarried after my husband of 20 yrs passed away in 1996), and since have divorced. my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I graduated from Davenport College with an Associate's Degree in Claims Management. The last movie that i saw was Mr. Woodcock, which i rented from Blockbuster. I'm not one to go much to the movie theater. One of my favorite authors are Jane Austin. I like the saying, "Love, and be loved". and the commandment that God gave of "Love one another".

Just wanted to stop by to check on you. I haven't seen you on any of the team forums.
I have been trying to get a "Spark" going on this team! It's happening slowly, but this is my first time being team leader and I am learning as I go along.
Check out the team page, we now have team goals, which I will probably change in September, It looks like we will exceed the fitness minutes and the spark points goals. I have also posted to new forums.
Looking forward to hearing from you. We are all here to support and motivate each other.
I know for me, the older I get the harder it is to take this weight off. I need all the support and motivation I can get. SP has been amazing for me, I hope you are loving it as well.
