Hi there! I am a farm wife whose only car is my pickup truck. I like to knit, crochet, quilt, and embroider all of which my mother taught me at a very early age. I said "I like to", by no means do I think I am good at it. Well, I am better than some, but far from the quality my mother produces. Anyway, my youngest sister (who is as good as Mom) calls me the 'cavegirl' crafter. I am not offended. I do what I do because it is fun for me. When it becomes something I am obsessing over, I will quit!!! I am dvgirl3 because there are 5 of us in Ohio (6 if you count Mom). I would rather be in my yard than just about anywhere else. That sort of makes me a wanna be a landscaper. I am partial to country music and rock from the 50's, 60's and 70's. However, I can listen to anything, well maybe not rap. I love Peeps, chocolate and circus peanuts, my favorite movie is 'Music Man'. I once aspired to be one of the Jimmy Dean Dancers then a veterinarian and now I am a nurse.

Member Since: 1/20/2010

Fitness Minutes: 290

My Goals:
Being healthy is the true goal. If losing weight stops some of the uncomfortableness that is wonderful and then if I look sexy that would be great!

My Program:
To write down what I eat, at least that is where I am starting. From there just being more organized about menus and how I shop. Along with that I am currently figuring out how I can add more focused exercise to my life.

Personal Information:
I have been a nurse for 30+ years and feel that I should never have let my self get out of control like this, but HEY it happened and now I need to deal with it.
