Hello all! I'm an almost 42 year old single mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I've been fighting with my weight for as long as I can remember and I've decided that 2013 is going to be my year to Shine, despite the obstacles I find along my path!

I officially joined this site about 2 years ago, and quickly forgot about it. I came back right before the new year in hopes that this site would help me take accountability and give me the support and motivation I need to succeed.

I have had a few set-backs so far this year...first, a knee injury that kept me from my routine for a good portion of Jan...Then a car accident which as a result, required me to have knee surgery, on Feb 4th. Since then, I've had to deal with pinched nerves in my back and neck, and my right arm and hand constantly going numb.

Still recovering and doing all I can to get back on track, I'm in need of some supportive and encouraging friends, as I have no support system on the home front. I would also LOVE to have friends that I can encourage and motivate myself. A local workout partner would be AWESOME!!!!!!

Fitness Minutes: 105

My Goals:
My main goal is to be happier and healthier in 2013 as happiness and health come in many forms. However, my weight loss goal will be to lose 50 pounds by November 2013.

My Program:
My program will not be an easy one to describe as I will researching healthy eating and fitness and will probably be changing things up quite regularly.

For now, it will be a combination of healthier eating and moving more, since I haven't been paying much attention to either lately.

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara...I live in Pottsville, PA, and would LOVE to find someone locally to workout with and support!! =)

    Thank you so much for the blog-love! It truly means a lot! I was SO nervous about posting REAL pics of my progress b/c I know my journey is just beginning... Thanks for being a part of it!

    Modification was a HUGE part of my daily routine with P90X! But each week I could see improvements! My wife also has bad knees - she blew them both out playing college ball... So as Tony Horton says "Just do your best, and forget the rest!"

If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Off the top of my head, I can't think of where Pottsville is, but I am from Woodland PA (35miles west of State College). Welcome to Central PA group - hopefully you will find someone here who lives close by. However, I know you will find all sorts of support on the SP site from all over the country. People who will share your sorrows, rejoice in your success and just be there to listen when you need to talk. Good luck and have a great day. emoticon emoticon Bev
