Hello everyone.
I am here because I plan to develop a healthy way of eating that will enable me to lose weight (all 65 pounds of it!) and then keep it off! I also want to be a role model for my grandchildren and provide tasty, healthy food that will appeal to them.

I am married with three grown children. I have three delightful grandchildren (18 years, 15 years, and a 10 year old - two girls and a boy) who make me laugh and keep me up to date on the 'latest' news. They also make me feel like a celebrity whenever they see me or come to visit! They give great hugs!

Here is my thought for the day:

The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it can work; then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one doubt or disbelief.

To reach my goal weight of 125 pounds. Then keep it off.

Personal Information:
I live in Courtenay, BC. We decided to downsize and be mortgage free. This we did and are enjoying our patio home surrounded by a park with a river running nearby. We have wonderful neighbours, are five minutes walking time from the town, and 5 min driving time to our church.

Other Information:
"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, this time more wisely."

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek." Mario Andretti
