In the last 4 years my whole life has changed dramatically. I lost my husband, and a year later I moved out of the beautiful home I loved. 1 year later, my oldest son bought his own home and I couldn't be happier for him. 1 child out of the house. 2 years later, my youngest graduated from high school and now lives in Texas, thanks to the Air Force. 2 children out of the house. Thankfully, my daughter lives with me (at least for the time being). I had one heck of a pity party and packed on the pounds.

In February of this year, my daughter decided to start a medically supervised weight loss program recommended by her doctor. And that is what got me going! I thought that I had to start losing weight, doing this with her, to keep her motivated. But she is the one that motivates me! We keep each other in line, though that line may not always be straight (LOL)! We are both doing fantastic, but we are on different programs. I love seeing the changes in my daughter!

And I'm changing, too. Not only am I winning at losing, but I'm a happier, healthier version of me! It's amazing what losing a little weight and getting a little exercise can do for ones mood.

Personal Information:
I am widowed, have 3 adult children, a dog and I live in southeast Wisconsin. I love to garden and I am constantly moving plants around or buying something new to pop in the ground. I am remodeling my home (a lot of paint, sweat, dust, noise and fun!) with the help of my adult son (I don't know what I would do without him). I love DIY projects and constantly scour Pinterest for ideas.

I'm addicted to Dancing With The Stars. I would love to be able to dance like that!
