I didn't mind being "gordita", but my doc said I should lose the weight for health. I am post menopausal, married 37 years before my husband passed away in Feb of 2011. He loved me the way I was and so do the people I've come to know and love during my mission trips. I am not trying to impress anyone, but I want to be around for my grandkids and for my extended family in Peru
People can see more pix - and videos - at Photobucket.com. My album is mumz2you. and follow my mission trips in Peru at http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/

Fitness Minutes: 53,534

My Goals:
To reach and stay around 180, maybe even as low as 160 if possible, SOME time by 2017. I may never be able to fit into my 40 year old wedding dress, but I can at least hope to be fit and healthy for my remaining years of service.


My Program:
My daughter, Abi, and I got in this together, by changing our eating habits and developing an exercise habit. I am trying to exercise more regularly and eat more "freggies".



Personal Information:
I was born in Texas, but I''ve lived in Rochester most of my life. I became a Christian my senior year of high school (Spencerport class of ''71) and met Ansel at an Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship retreat during my 2nd year at SUNY at New Paltz. We married less than a year later (Oct 27, ''73) and after losing our first child went on to have 3 others - Abi (12 -77) Ben (8-83) and Cassie (10-86). Ben married October '06 .Abi has given us our first 2 grandchildren-and yes, by the same man!Our son Ben gave us a granddaughter, Penny, in Sept 07 and grandson Jack in February 09! My husband Ansel passed away in February of 2011, but the Lord united me with a wonderful Peruvian man in August of same year, Levi Utia. We tried to have a civil ceremony either here or there. But we encountered so many obstacles. We finally married in August 2016, and are now in the process of getting his spouse visa.


Other Information:
I've made 11 mission trips to Peru, and will gladly explain how I became involved to anyone who has ears to hear! I have "second homes" in Pucallpa, Lima, Chiclayo, and Iquitos (just wish I could go more often) and I have cultivated some very close friendships there.
Anyone interested in seeing photos and videos from my trip in June-July 07 and to Machu Picchu in Feb of 07 can see them at the Photobucket.com album under mumz2you . I have two blogs - the bilingual : http://hermana-shelley.blogspot.com/ and my 'Perunews" http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/ where I have blogged about my most recent trip - complete with photos. Stop by and read all about it! I will try to update the photos in my gallery, so stop by again!

    When we are invited out, we go. I don't take the phone with me. If the family needs us, they can look for help elsewhere. I was on call with Mom for years and there is always that anticipation of dread when you hear the phone ring.

    Our phone rings when we are about to eat, when my husband needs to go to work, and it has become a nuisance. They act like my husband is a jack of all trades. He helped put a chair together that has a seat that boosts your rear end up to help you get out of it, His brother is on the phone now. His wife is the one that has blood clots and he is blind. I can understand him calling, but he calls at inopportune times. My husband offered him something to eat. I don't mind that, it is just that when we are about to eat or my husband has to leave to go to work, that the phone rings.

    I wouldn't pay money for those seams and pockets of jeans. RAWCOOKIE is making a costume to run in and she has done a super job.
