I have recently recovered from a debilitating illness and injury. Prior to that I had several family problems that had started me on the way putting on weight. So much weight that I had begun losing on my own but found again that I could not do this alone. I have recovered from the illness and injury which took 3 years but the many extra pounds are still here!! I need to join with others on the same mission and gain the motivation to at last end my journey of weight loss for good. I am looking for others that also need this help and desire to lose the weight and keep it off!! I have alreaady lost 7 pounds in 5 days. I am enjoying the excersising already. My hobbies are baseball, quilting, geneology. I have three grandchildren I want to see grow up and can join them in play. I am retired due to a disablilty as well as many health problems due to my need to lose weight!!

    ~~ This Is Memorial Day ~~

    This is Memorial Day

    In our Land of the Free.

    It's because of those who Sacrificed

    Whose Graves you're here to See.

    They fought on Foreign Lands

    And Across the Open Sea,

    And paid the Ultimate Price

    To keep you and I Free.

    So put all things Aside

    And Honor this important Day,

    Which we have Dedicated

    As Our Memorial Day.
