LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!

I have always enjoyed an active life; however, after turning 50 the weight starting sticking. I gained over 25 pounds within 12 months. I knew I needed to make some major changes to stop the weight gain. So, I joined this site to talk to like minded people fighting the battle of the bulge. I plan to do whatever it takes to lose 50 pounds, radically changing my diet, regular exercise, personal trainer, etc.
I know I can do it!

Let's keep moving together in 2014!

Thank you so much for visiting my page and commenting on my virtual race. I have a bad left knee and use a brace to get back in the races. I know my time is slow, but I love the environment and it has helped me to keep pushing.
