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 (14 years, 11 years, and a 6 year old - two girls and a boy) who make me laugh and keep me up to date on the 'latest' news. They ...
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 (14 years, 11 years, and a 6 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! Since I love to read, we do a lot of library visits and reading together.


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.

Personal Information:
