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.

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I write every day as I promised myself I would write a book because lots of people have asked me to and I thought I didn't have the time.

    I decided to write every day for a year and up to about day 170 or so and then the theory is I will print off everything, edit and put it into some sort of order.

    Until then I just write whatever tickles me and then relate this to weight loss, body image, self esteem, motivation etc.

    I read some of your blogs and want to wish you well on your journey. I too went back to school - in fact am still at school and enjoy it tremendously. Weight loss is a process - there's just so much mis-information out there you need to choose wisely. Walking, water and writing food choices down seems to work for everyone so I dont really preach much more than that - I just seem to have a knack of writing that people like.

    Anyway, stay focused, keep learning, set some goals, adapt and aim for the stars - because that's exactly what you are + a star...

    cuz you have cool horses on your page! lol Honestly, I add everyone I come across who I think could motivate me or whom I could motivate. I liked something you said somewhere....I don't remember what. I figure I need a plethora of people to keep me on track, cuz so many people are here one minute and gone the next! Best to ;your family. Lord, bless horsey, her husband and family. Bless this year. Give them courage to put one foot in front of the other to meet the goals you have for them!
