My name is Kim, homemaker, wife and mother. I have a supportive and loving husband of almost 28 years, along with 2 wonderful grown sons (26 & 21) and an 11 yr old black lab, Molly. I've struggled with my weight since having my oldest son and have had many ups and downs with my weight through the years.

Recently, I was diagnosed as having osteoarthritis in my right knee and face the possibility of having a total knee replacement in my future. I would love to be able to get moving again to aid in my weight loss as well as getting my knee healthier.

Member Since: 8/31/2007

Fitness Minutes: 10,439

My Goals:
My goal is to lose about 50 lbs to both look good & to feel good. Having osteoarthritis in my right knee, it is important to improve the flexibility so I can enjoy life again.

My Program:
1. I am trying to walk AT LEAST 1 mile per day (usually averaging 2 now).
2. I use the nutrition & fitness trackers to help keep me within my daily goals.
3. I am trying to be a more positive person (which is hard for my melancholy-type personality).
4. I am trying to incorporate more overall activity in my life instead of sitting in front of my computer and getting outside more.

Personal Information:
This year (2011), I will be celebrating 28 years of marriage to my best friend, Steve.

I have 2 great boys, Brandon (26 yrs old) and Chris (21 yrs. old) and a black lab named Molly (11 yrs old).

I am a total Disney nut (just check out the pics) and love going to Florida to escape from the reality of day to day living.

Other Information:
I enjoy doing minor home improvements and when the mood hits me, scrapbooking.

I have recently renewed my interest in reading and am currently in the middle of reading The Spark.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. I had not thought about adding something like Propel to the water, so I appreciate the tip.
