I am a 62-yr-old Mimi to 6 absolutely fantabulous children. Over Christmas in 2007, my daughter was in the hospital after having her 5th baby and I was charged with keeping the other four. The picture was taken on Christmas Eve 2007 and it is the reason I decided I HAD to lose weigh and get physically fit... that picture is NOT who I thought I was... So here begins a new leg of the journey (or as it turned out a rabbit trail...).

Two years has passed amazingly fast... I lost my way along the way and gained weight, not lost it. So I am back again and I purpose to learn how to do this the RIGHT way and make healthy changes to last a lifetime.

Member Since: 2/14/2008

Fitness Minutes: 341

My Goals:
My goal is to weigh 150 lbs. and be physically fit... I want to be able to keep up with my young grandchildren.

Another goal is to be motivated to keep up with things I need to do. I would really like to start a home business that will "spark" my creativity and supplement a retiree's income... or better. ;O)

My Program:
I tried the South Beach Diet and found it too restrictive for the long haul... I am back on Spark People (and reading the BOOK!) trying to get a firm grasp on my life and trying to make wise changes to improve my life!

Personal Information:
Hi, My name is Judy and I am from Blacksburg, Virginia, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies. I am 62-years-old (finally coming to grips with that and being able to admit it). My DH and I were married nearly six years ago on Valentine's Day. I have 4 terrific children and 7 wonderful grandchildren, the youngest being 2-years-old. I am currently working as a church secretary (the income pays for my health insurance) but I am an Interior Designer looking for some work I can do from home that will fit with my retired husband's schedule... we like to travel from time to time.

Other Information:
Activities: I love knitting, crocheting, quilting, machine embroidery, painting... just about anything creative!

    Welcome to the Hokie team! I'm so jealous that you live in Blacksburg. I miss it there so much. I didn't grow up there, but when my husband and I go up there for games it always feel like home to me. I hope to move back there - and I would love for it to be soon. I work for the Federal Government, so I'm waiting for that golden job to come open somewhere in the area. My husband is in sales and could actually transfer to the Roanoke office. Maybe one day!

    And your new grandbaby is so beautiful! Congratulations on such a wonderful family!

    Welcome to the Tech team! I LOVE the burg, and my husband and I would love to live there again someday with our family. I am a second generation Hokie, so the orange and maroon run through the veins! We have very similar goals, and interests. Good luck to you and I hope that we can all encourage each other to achieve our goals. Take care, Leia
