My name is Wendy aka horsewoman7407. I'm 57, married, and I'm a bookkeeper for a small manufacturing company near my home. I love horses but don't any, have two cats, a grown daughter and two grandchildren ages 17 and 14. My weight has been a struggle all of my life. At my highest weight about 16 years ago I weighed over 260 pounds. I'm under 200 pounds now. I want to lose the weight for myself, to be healthy, for better self esteem and to feel good in my skin and my clothes.
Looking for a weight loss buddy to share the journey with me.

    "You've been given the innate power to shape your life...but you cannot just speak change, you have to LIVE change.

    "Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
    We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
    One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
    -Jillian Michaels

    “Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
    Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
    In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
    Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
