Hi. Welcome to my page.

I reached my first weight loss goal last year, but have not really maintained as I had hoped. But, I own that and it will not be long until I am at that maintenance weight again. From there I still need to lose 15 pounds. But, I decided to devote my energies to progress.

I plan to make progress and not beat myself up for being, well, perfect. so, this year is all about Progress, NOT Perfection!

Fitness Minutes: 320,167

My Goals:
My goals will seem less than SMART, but this is how I want to progress.... With less pressure and more acceptance. I will focus on progress, NOT perfection. I will engage in healthier eating habits, a balanced fitness program, plenty of water, and being kinder to myself. I need to live more relaxed and accepting of my diabetes related illnesses and all that entails. I feel a focus on progress in all areas of life will help me balance it all out!

My Program:
I am a WW member. the new changes were not too drastic, so I am pleased. plus, I love my Wednesday workshops! My meetings keep me accountable and I get great feedback!

Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes & living a wild life in my teens and early 20s! I will celebrate 50 years of diabetes on May 21, 2019! Pretty awesome I've lived this long! I am now battling kidney disease as well as being blind. so, more than ever healthy eating is a priority!

I am married and live in beautiful southside Virginia! I have a wonderful & supportive husband. We have a 4 legged baby girl named Sassy. Yes, she is spoiled and maybe a bit crazy! but, we love her to pieces!

I am trained in belly dancing & even performed on a cruise ship! I enjoy water aerobics, swimming, walking/jogging, am addicted to Pahla Bowers workout videoes and also use the Curves Smart program at Curves which allows me to push myself during each workout!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz.

I am a Type 1 Diabetic. Diagnosed at age 4. Losing weight will NOT cure my diabetes. As of now there is NO cure!

    Some of my favorite quotes are by Og Mandino (he passed away in 1996, but his books have sold over 60 million copies.)

    Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
    Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
    I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
    I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
    Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.
    Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

    Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.

    Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.
    Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.
    Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.
