Kathy's Page:

Today's the Day I start new. March 7th, 2011! That's it! Today's the day to finally DO something about my overweight body. Today's the day I finally start taking care of myself. Today's the day that I will matter and not feel guilty to do so. Today is the day!

I'm tired of being overweight. I'm tired of not having the beautiful clothes that I want to wear fit me. I'm tired of even thinking about it. I'm tired of struggling to bend, twist, reach or do any kind of physical activity. I'm tired of breaking a sweat with the smallest physical activity that I do. I'm tired of feeling tired, bloated and downright heavy. I'm tired of the burden of feeling this way only to wake the next morning at the same place. I'm tired of making excuses for not doing something about it.

Member Since: 3/7/2011

Fitness Minutes: 905

My Goals:
To add exercise to my daily life.
To watch what I eat.
To add water to my daily routine.
To STOP eating those darn Hershey Symphony bars! ;)

My Program:
Still trying to figure this one out! :)

Personal Information:
Originally, I'm from Rhode Island. In 2004, we moved to Pomfret, Connecticut where we lived until August 2010. From there we moved to our current location-- Spartanburg, South Carolina. A bit of a culture shock, to be sure, but we are adjusting nicely. The South is a very nice place to live!

Other Information:
I'm married with four kids and seven grandchildren. I have only one child at home now and she's in college. I also have my two beloved "fur kids"--my boxers Gracie girl and Millie beans and one kitty named "Miss Kitty". I love God, my church and brethren, my husband, children and grandbabies. Children in general. I'm a professional floral designer though not working now, so I love flowers of all kinds. I love animals of all kinds. I enjoy outdoor bird watching and feeding. Creating backyard wildlife habitats, organic gardening-both flowers and vegetables-cooking/baking/canning/sharing! I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, sending cards and notes, crafting, and knitting/crocheting..although I'm just learning. I love Jason Mraz music, TCM movies from 20's to 50's. I love painting, dancing and crafting of all kinds. I'm going to learn how to play that guitar leaning against the wall! Ha! Whew! Oh, and I love friends!!

    Spring is here!
    In like a lion......out like a lamb.
    Old Man Winter.........we say "Scram".
    The streams are full from the melted snow.
    Soon will be time to plant and to hoe.
    The birds are chirping high in the tree.
    Spring is arriving.....that we can see.
    Flowers rising from their wintry beds
    Crocus and tulips raising their heads.
    Bunnies hopping around in the clover.
    At long last..........Winter is Over.

    Happy Spring!

    "May love and laughter light up your days
    And warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours
    Whenever you may roam
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    With joy that long endures.
    May all life's passing seasons bring the best
    To you and yours."

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! emoticon
