My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.

Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.


Member Since: 10/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 26,099

My Goals:
One day at a time...one minute at a time...one second at a time to HEALTH.


My Program:
Keep trying! When you fall, get up and get back in the race. (Sounds like a song, hum?)



Personal Information:
Married, 3 children, 3 grandchildren and too many pounds!


Other Information:
I love to travel, read, go to the theatre, concerts, but I'd like to do all these without so much effort to get there. The extra weight is a drag on the woman I used to be and wish to be again.

    You are doing great. I'd really like for you to try our team, "It's all about the Fives." Healthy eating, five positive actions a day and short term goals of losing five pounds can really add up. WE could use your enthusiasm.
