Hi, My name is Lin, I'm curently 61 years old, a widow of a year and a couple of months. I'm just now recovering from that loss. I live with my mom, she is 90 years old and needs to be cared for. I also live with my 36 year old son, he is having a few mental problems at this time, but with meds and love I hope to pull him through this and see that he has a normal life. I want to lose this weight so that I can move, and walk. I miss walking so much, I used to walk when I was upset or needed to think things through, but this is no longer possible. I want to lose the weight so I can live longer and enjoy the wonderful places on this beautiful earth.
I am an artist, love to paint with watercolors and also do digital graphics and web pages. I teach a graphic program and love doing that. I also belong to a fibromyalgia support site and visit there each evening.

    Hello there hope things are going well for you. Hard to believe this year is almost over. I have not accomplished much this year. Hope to do much much better in the new year.

    I love your art work. I haven't worked on art for almost a year. With baby sitting I just don't make the time. Plus my grand daughter lives with me and her mother. She seems to get into every thing at 2 years old. Easier to wait untill she is a bit older.
    We all can find excuses..ha Bee

    HI Lin,
    I just checked out your photos from your trip to the zoo. That must have been so much fun. The flower fields were beautiful too! We have had a long winter here, so I love the flowers!
