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.

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.
