Welcome to my page! Come in, kick off your shoes, and enjoy yourself! Feel free to comment and leave any good advice you may have.

Weight has not always been an issue for me. When I was younger, I was so skinny that my back and my chest were in the same spot. :-) Unfortunately, I don't have that problem anymore.

God has been GREAT to me, and in order to carry out His plans, I must do something about my weight. Presently, my weight is getting in the way because EVERYTHING is hurting because of the extra weight. So, I have decided that THIS IS IT; I must reclaim what is mine--and that is good health.

    Hello, my DDST sister.
    I thought about you since I (your Zeta sister) will be worshipping next Sunday in a church where my son will be delivering the sermon next unday afternoon. But, he stated that in the Sunday morning service the Deltas will be worshipping together. Just to let you know that at least one Zeta will be there to put some accent to the color scheme. (LOL)
    How have you been? I hope all is well with you.

    Hello. We walk early mornings at the park off of Gross Rd and 635. Mostly I walk alone. I sometimes walk the trail off New Market Rd that goes all the way over to Cartwright. I don't walk that one alone since a lot of it is wooded. That one I walk in the evenings with my husband, but lately he hasn't had time to walk. Are you available during any of those times? I also walk in my neighborhood in the mornings for about 30 minutes. I live off of 635 & Cartwright/Bruton Rds. I'm on the Mesquite side--Cartwright.

    I am glad to see you back. I too have been gone for a minute. I am glad that school is out for me and I can enjoy some type of vacation before summer school starts. I am committed again to losing the weight I gained back and then some. let's do this (again ) :)
