After having three children (18, 22, 25) and two stepchildren (19, 22), I discovered myself pregnant again. I had a baby girl just 6 weeks shy of my 45 birthday and am ready to get myself back into shape so I can live long and health to enjoy this child! She weighed in at birth at a hefty 10 lbs. 6 ozs, but I'm a long way to losing what I had gained. So here I am!

As of today (9/20/06) I've lost 28 pounds by calculating my caloric needs and exercising. I discovered weight training, walking, the elliptical trainer, pilates and yoga. I developed and have kept an Excel spreadsheet "journal" of my calorie intake and expenditure. It's been great seeing the scales now, and I even enjoy trying on clothes. My bodyfat from July 10 to September 15 went from 30% to 23%. Yahoo!

Member Since: 7/15/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I have three goals set. The first is the one I'm focused on: to lose 12 pounds by August 21. From there, 10 additional pounds by the end of October, and an additional 10 pounds by year''s end. Since starting this journey of changing my lifestyle habits, I''ve lost 10 pounds since June 18.

My Program:
Changing a particular lifestyle is never easy. Therefore, I joined the local YMCA to be around other people. I made an appointment with "Wellness Works," a fitness assessment and goal-setting program offered. I''m lifting weights (3 times a week), participating in a Pilates and Yoga class (twice a week), and tread water for 30-60 minutes 4-5 days a week.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in Greenville, SC. We have six kids between us (his, hers, and ours). Ours is 9 months old. Mine are 18, 22 and 25. His are 19 and 22.

Other Information:
My hobbies and interests are reading (mystery fan), cooking, walking, swimming, knitting, needlework, and camping.

    I'm stopping by to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
    Let's leave behind the old year and old patterns that have set us back and push forward towards our goals with success and determination.
    Numbers 6 :24 `May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.
    May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
    May the Lord show you his favor
    and give you his peace.'

    Love Prayers and Blessings
