I am a 58 year old woman who wants to finally get herself together physically. I have been overweight all my life, now it is time to get on track.
After raising five children and becoming grandmother to eleven, I found myself alone. I did not know how to handle it, so I sat on the couch and it seems I didn't move for years.
Today, after reading about Spark People, I made a decision to get moving. Like the saying goes, "today is the first day of the rest of my life." I am so excited.

Fitness Minutes: 680

My Goals:
Physically I would like to lose 40+ pounds in a healthy manner, I also want to stop smoking. I can no longer make excuses for the way I eat and the cigarettes I smoke. I want to become a healthy individual.

My Program:
I plan on a walking program. This week to start off I will walk a mile each day, week two will see two miles, and likewise week three will find me walking three miles each day. When I am comfortable with that, I will incorporate some strength exercises.

Personal Information:
I am a single woman who just now can appreciate her independence. While I am sorry things did not work in my marriage of many years, we both made mistakes and it is time to move forward. I have no desire to date again but do enjoy the company of friends. For the first time in my life, I can do what I wish when I wish. How cool is that?

Other Information:
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."John Lennon.
I don't want life to pass me by anymore. If you want to find me, I'll be enjoying life, not watching it pass by.

    Hi Mary, I have been on vacation for a week. Just got back this evening and am supper tired!! We went to Ft. Walton Florida for our grandsons graduation for his unit in the Army. He will be deployed to Texas and from there we do not know. It was a fun week and the graduation was very special. We went with our daughter, her husband and the two grandsons that I babysit for. Will get back again later in the week. God bless. Jo
