Hi, I'm DixieD.
I am a wife, a mother, a research coordinator, a cook, a housekeeper, a chauffeur, an organizer, and am owned by three cats and a dog.
I'm trying to get healthy at long last. In addition to all my duties, I'm trying to put myself at the top of every day's to do list, and do what needs to be done to get as healthy as possible. I would like to quit needing blood pressure meds, and to avoid going on cholesterol meds.
My husband and I have been married for 28 years, and we just survived a rough patch. Now it's better than ever.
My kids are nearly grown, and are 23 and 18.
I have lost ten pounds in the past year, and working on it five pounds at a time.
My long term goal is to have lost 37 pounds by May 18, 2012. That's my daughter's graduation day.
I have joined my local YMCA and am taking an awesome class called Corepower two to three times a week. Since joining the Y, I've lost an inch off my waist and chest and tummy. Yay!
I'm loving life, and ready to love me.
Let's make 2012 the best year ever!

    Happy Tuesday Friends and Team Mates.
    I’m doing well. Looking forward to reaching some goals this month.

    Thought I’d stop by to see how you are and to drop a little brain teaser I found on you.

    What's the missing letter?
    J ? M A M J J A S O N D


    Explanation: The letters are the first letter of each of the twelve months. The second month is February.

    Let’s rock it this month! And thanks for supporting me along the way.

    I came across the following quote while "googling around" the internet a few days ago and think it's message is so important that I want to share it with my friends!

    "All of life is a journey; which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there." From A Little Book of Happiness
