Tuff, my orphaned AQHA foal at 10 days old, May 2011.
Happy, happy day, Jan. 29, 2011 - I became a first time grandmother!

I'm Susan - a wife, mother of three, grandmother, and ready to be fit! I live out in the country with my husband, dog, cat, and two horses, and enjoy gardening, riding and walking. It's time to make my health a priority!
"You don't get what you want, you get what you work for." It's time to do the work!
Quit hovering in one place, and start hoofing it! After maintaining my weight loss between 25-30 pounds for over a year, it's high time to get more off.
Short term goals:
Lose 5% of my weight in the Fall Challenge.
Long Term goal:
Weigh less than 180, which will put me in the "overweight" vs. "obese" category on the BMI chart.
Focusing on lots of vegetables, fruits, low fat proteins, whole and complex grains and little to no sugar. My exercise program includes treadmill workouts, exercise videos, beginning strength training (besides lifting 50 pound bags of feed and my 35 pound grandson) gardening, and horses (care and riding).
I have lived in beautiful North Georgia since I was a teenager. My husband, Steve, and I live on 20 rural acres where I am blessed to be able to do the things I love - garden, have horses, walk and enjoy the country!
We have raised two daughters and one son, all who still live fairly close by. Now that I am retired, I can spend more time with my grandson.
| current weight: 180.8

We have been stuck at home since Monday, unable to leave because our driveway is so wet and soft, too soft to support our vehicles! I got out for church this morning by driving alongside the driveway on the field. We had the man who did our other gravel work out yesterday to see about getting our driveway done. He said he would try to get it done this week but will have to see if he can get the gravel, because right now everyone wants it!
So, we have been blessed in that our house is dry and warm, but were impacted by all the rain collecting in the driveway. We have owned this land since 2006 and never had a problem but this year was one for the record books along with last year. The problem was, this year, our ground was already wet and unable to absorb any more moisture. We are supposed to leave next Sunday the 12th on our vacation but will have to see how the driveway is if it doesn't get fixed before then.

It should, Sue! Actually I am pretty excited about it. I bought the Gold Plan which is $150 per month per individual, and it is only me who needs it. They also have a Major Medical coverage for $40 a YEAR so I am joining that too! What you do, is go in and tell the hospital or doctor that you are self pay, and get the discount. The medical provider bills YOU, and you send the bill for payment to the Christian Health Ministries. Only a $500 deductible, too!
I found out today through BC/BS of Texas that you must call the marketplace well ahead of time to cancel your Obamacare policy, so I will be calling them Monday. I really hate calling....the first time I called, I was told there would be a 20 minute wait. Well, I held for exactly 1 hour and then, they hung up on me! The second time I called, I got a rep after holding 25 minutes. Wish me luck!
