My name is Sandra, but my friends call me Sandy. I am 52 years old. I always hide behind excuses; I'm to tired, I'll exercise later, yeah,yeah I know I should go on a diet, I know your concern about my health...etc. :( This Time I made a bet with my son, Chris, He went to Afghanistan and the bet is I won't lose any weight while he is gone. I have a year to make a big difference. It's just a bet I'll do it this time. He said I won't because I say it all the time.

My Goals:
To LOSE WEIGHT is the big goal I have right now. I want better health to be able to walk across a room without feel like crap when I get to the other side. to be able to walk/run a mile by next week. To have shed 5 lbs in a week. And the biggest Goal of mine; To know I'm not a Loser.

My Program:
Well, psychology 101 first you got to want to change and then do something about it and I am reaching out for help on this sight. So if anybody can please help it would be great because I really don't know where to be gin. Thank you,ps I am going to join a gym it's very close to where I live. So I won't have an excuse there.

Personal Information:
I'm living in Columbus, Ohio. and if you have any thing you can think of you want to ask or some advice my email is

yes, when I got a divorce is when my weight started pouring on because I married my job. (nursing)

Other Information:
I read this once;

The difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone is the character of the individual walking the path.

I don't plan on stumbling through life anymore :)

That's why I'm calling this "My Life Journey"
So hold on it's going to get pretty wild I'm afraid LOL

    I am so glad I'm starting this, I'm tired of so my things tire of not being able to walk a mile with out taking a break. I'm tired of having problems putting on my shoes. I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of my kids feeling a shamed of me (that's what hurts the most).

    Well this is a new day and it starts NOW!!! I am going to get my confidence back. I never used to be shy. I was always out going.( key word out going, I never was in the house. ever! My mother would have to almost drag me in :) emoticon
