I am Adrienne from the San Francisco bay area. I've been married over 40 years to my loving husband, Mike, and we have 2 successful sons, Greg and Jeff, two lovely daughter in laws and four adorable grandkids with the latest #4 my first granddaughter born on 6/4/2018 Wahoo! My banner picture is my friends and I snow shoeing in the Sierras. I'm the one with the turquoise hat.

I reached my ultimate goal of 128 lbs on 3/20/12. I'll remain under 127 lbs for the rest of my life with a belly that will let me wear a bikini again.

Member Since: 6/30/2011

Fitness Minutes: 174,033

My Goals:
New goal: Stay between 123 an 127 for the rest of my life- one day at a time! I'm on track. On maintenance for over five years and still counting.

My Program:
Walking much more. Doing Spark fitness program and eating healthier with less calories I recently joined a fitness center called Active Age. I go every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a strength and fitness class. I feel stronger every day.

I'm Adrienne and I grew up in beautiful New York City. I've lived in Yuma Az. but since I've lived in California longer than anyplace else I consider myself a California native.

I love to read, sew, quilt and watch movies which is probably why I struggle keeping my weight down but this time I feel like I'll be able to stay slim for the rest of my life!

    I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In some others' eyes, my life is the epitome of success. However, aside from work I have little joy. In the end my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in have paled and become meaningless in the face of my death.

    You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone bear your sickness for you. Material things lost can be found or replaced, but there is one thing that can never be found when it's lost - Life. Whichever stage in life you are in right now, with time you will face the day when the curtain comes down.

    Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, and love for your friends. Treat yourself well and cherish others. As we grow older and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $300 or a $30 watch both tell the same time. You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down - you go down with it.

    Therefore, I hope you realize when you have mates, buddies, old friends, brothers and sisters who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth; that is true happiness. Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price.

    The one who loves you will never leave you for another because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage.

    Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise you may have to eat medicine as your food. The six best doctors in the world are sunlight, rest, exercise, diet, prayer and friends. Maintain them in all stages and enjoy a healthy life." - author unknown

    Thoughts are an important part of your inner wisdom and they are very powerful. A thought held long enough and repeated often enough becomes a belief. A belief then becomes your biology. ~ Christiane Northrup
