I am so very blessed, but I am at a time in my life when my knees and back are telling me that this extra weight I have carried around with me my most of my life must go. I did experience a period of being thin in my early 20"s, but that ended with the blessing of my first daughter. I have always accepted my weight, as I was heavy most of my life and never let it get in the way of how I lived. Now, however, it is slowing me down too much and I don't like how it makes me feel. My daughter and son-in-law will be presenting us with a beautiful grandson in May and I want to be a hands-on grandma. In order to do that, I must say goodbye to the so many extra pounds that I have lived with. I will not be sad to see them go. I must fill myself with the Holy Spirit each day because I know that He is my greatest Helper and motivate myself by reading God's word - truth that I am loved and can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! I wish to be more than a conqueror!

Fitness Minutes: 74

My Goals:
My aim is to be healthy. The weight never bothered me so much when I was younger. Now the aches & pains make me realize that if I want my body to feel as young as my mind does, I must work at it.

My Program:
I am trying to keep low carb and high protein. I seems to work better for me and I feel that it is better for those of us who have a predisposition to diabetes.

Personal Information:
Staten Island, NY
I live near the ocean but I love the mountains. Reading, steak and ice cream are loves of mine (after the Lord, my honey and my girls, of course). The first is good, the other two.. not so. Purple and turquoise are my favorite colors.

Other Information:
John Denver fan. Favorite song of his - Singing Skies and Dancing Waters
Love singing in church- favorite hymn -
Love to read before bedtime to relax my mind.

    Thank you Sweetie for the very kind compliment Yes most of what I write is my own and some I read and post that I had found it and want to share with others. My life has not always been kind and I find solace in writing

    I hope you have a wonderful day, and again thank you
