I am interested in loosing some weight and getting healthier. I like working with the older Girl Scouts and they are active. I want to be able to participate in their activities more.

I am married, have one daughter, and 2 step children, all grown and have families of their own. The grandkids come around and I have no get up and go to do things with them. Want to change that.

My Goals:
I want to loose about 100 pounds and become healthier. My husband is a diabetic and I hope to help him while I am helping myself.

My Program:
I have just started and not sure yet what I am going to do. I have a lot of back problems which prevent me from doing a lot of the activities I really like to do. I used to walk to and from work every day (about 15 blocks each way). Now I sometimes have trouble walking 2 blocks.

Personal Information:
I grew up in Missouri, then moved to Iowa when I was 20 to work. I retired in 2007 and moved back to Missouri. I moved back to be close to my mom who was in a care center, but lost her last year and so am staying to be close to my brother and 2 of my 3 sisters, and my daughter and grandson. I like Missouri, my husband doesn't.

Other Information:
I like to do photography, usually outdoor scenes especially sunset, sunrise, and unusual trees. My Girl Scouts call me that crazy lady with the fast camera.. LOL cause I am always snapping pictures when they are not expecting them. I also like to do scrapbooking. If anyone in the family is getting married or having a baby, they always make sure I am going to make them a book. My other favorite things are butterflies, baby harp seals, and carousels.

    God's Greatness
    Author unknown

    God is the greatest artist
    To whom no one can compare,
    Streaking sunsets very beautiful,
    Painting rainbows in the air.

    Brushing green the hillside scene,
    Blotting blue the sky above,
    Splashing flowers 'cross the ground beneath,
    Shading white clouds with His glove.

    Of the wonders God has made
    There is none that is so fair
    As the smile He paints upon your face
    When you realize He's there.

    Give it your best today - embrace the day and fill it up with joy! I'm cheering for you! emoticon

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.
