I just joined a few days ago. Still figuring out all the sites and information available here. My goal is to lose 35 pounds and improve my overall health. At 60 I have back and knee issues as well as (slightly) high blood pressure and cholesterol. I live in Southern Illinois, a small place called Cobden, which is 16 miles south of Carbondale. It is beautiful country here, in the Shawnee Forest. My husband, Mark, and I have two sons, both married, and each has given us a granddaughter, 9 and 19 months. I enjoy reading, crocheting, camping, play time with the grandkids, and watching my veggie garden grow. I hope the support and help I will get from you all will help me to lose the weight I need to shed, and I hope to lend the same support to you all. I look forward to getting to know you.
