I am 71 years old, wife , mother and grandma.
I live in Los Angeles, California with my dear husband. We have a family made up of natural born and adopted children We have 7 grown children, and 11 grandchildren.

I am a Christian and desire to have God at the center of every decision I make. I feel I need to honor Him more in my body. I went to the doctor recently and weighed in at 193. I was absolutely shocked. I have been in poor health for some time and in 2006-7 had a life threatening case of shingles..Now it is time I get up and start moving......!!
I want to look trim once again. I weighed 114 on my wedding day February 14, 1959.....Cheer me on!!!!

    I think all you need to do is reset your goals. Just make small changes! Pick one thing you want to start doing every day and keep that up for several weeks before trying to do anything else. Have you ever gotten the book "The Spark"? It's really good. Helps you ease into a new life.
    Am always here for you, Joyce!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks, Joyce but somehow I don't think I walk fast enough or far enough to be in any Olympic event....just get out there and walk around that block! You can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
