The Carolina's is for me, Born-attended schools-married in S.C.
Now calling the state of N.C. also home, living here since 1973.
Happily married to a loving, kind, gentle and a man of God.

February 12, 2008, reworked my Weight Watchers and Spark People program. Now on May 20th, I've accomplished a goal of eating more vegetable, fruit and 8 glasses of water daily. Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can. My next weight loss motivation is more exercise. I will FOCUS on my GOALS , WITH EVERLASTING COMMITMENT, and take PRIDE in my weight loss journey. Winners have two things: goals and a burning desire to achieve them.

On 12-30-08 I rejoined Weight Watchers using their new Momentum program & eating more "filling foods".

I am marking today as a new beginning. I am now recommitting to this journey. I will be enjoying my retired time, my husband, adult children, and most of all being a grandmother. I am looking forward to being as healthy as I can be. I will be a" Winner".

    Hi and thank you. I'm in Durham but it sounds like you have a wonderful retirement going. I don't think I'll ever get to retire. If I get this weight off I might be able to avoid disability secondary to arthritis. I'm working on it.. Here's hoping. Take care and I'm here if you need someone. BIG HUGSSSSSS, .... Becky

    I feel extremely honored to be included as a spark friend. I learn much from the wisdom you have gained throughout your journey and are willing to pass to others. I hope someday I might touch someone as they need it in the same way timely manner you have touched me.
