I was very unhealthy and overweight 2 years ago, then I changed my eating habits drastically, began working out and lost 30 poinds. I now have my hypertension and high cholesterol under control and feel and look much better.

Member Since: 6/11/2008

Fitness Minutes: 680

My Goals:
To lose at least 20 more pounds and continue to learn to eat healthy.


My Program:
I work out at the gyn 3 times a week and on the days I don't work out, I walk 1-3 miles with my husband, Cecil, and my dog, Teddy Bear.



Personal Information:
I'm originally from Waco, TX (born and raised). Got married at 18 and began moving around with my husband's job--he worked retail for 35+ years. Now he's out of retail and I work for the Texas Prison System in Huntsville, TX. We've been here for 3 1/2 years. I have 15 years with the system and my husband has almost 6. I hope to retire in 2013 with 20 years service and he hopes to retire then with 10 years service. We live in a golf course resort community next to the second largest lake in Texas. We don't play golf but the view can't be beat!


Other Information:
We have two grown children. Merrik is 32, is multi-handicapped, and lives in a group home in Abilene, TX. Cara is 29 (be 30 October 9th), graduated from Texas A&M University in 2000, and lives in College Station, TX. We moved to Huntsville to be closer to her and to move our son closer so she could obtain guardianship of him when I can no longer serve in that capacity. However, we haven't been able to find the right group home for him in this area, so he will remain in Abilene until that time.
