I've survived breast cancer and am celebrating 25 years of marriage...the kids are grown (they are 36 and 33) and it's time to get SERIOUS about eating healthy and exercising regularly. I'm excited about what my future holds!

Member Since: 6/17/2009

Fitness Minutes: 710

My Goals:
I'm looking forward to losing weight. I've been on so many medications for various conditions and I seem to have lost touch with my "healthy" self. I always enjoyed exercise, but as the years progressed, I allowed stress and work to consume me. Cancer was a real eye-opener for me. Life is precious and I want to enjoy every moment of every day to the fullest. Losing weight and eating well will allow me to feel better and move more freely. I'm looking forward to my future.

My Program:
I am so blessed...we have a 30' x 52" above ground swimming pool. We belong to the YMCA, so I can work out there and I also have a fitness ball, resistance bands, medicine ball, dumbbells, jump rope, etc. Since I already enjoy healthy foods, I will focus on portion control and eating more fruits and veggies. I will try to avoid sweets, and this will be a challenge for me.

Personal Information:
I'm 53 years old, and live with my husband of 25 years.
We moved to a tiny cabin in the woods in rural Southern Ohio 3 years ago after living in the city all our lives. Life here is peaceful and calm. I no longer work due to my health, but getting away from the stress of city life has been good medicine. I am a mother of 2 grown daughters and grandmother of 4.

Other Information:
I enjoy studying and collecting antiques and vintage items. We often list items on ebay or etsy so that we can make room for a new acquisition. I enjoy free lance writing and amatuer photography.

    I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts,
    or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
    search for answers.

    I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,
    nor the future with its untold stories.
    But I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
    I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

    Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
    Yet I can share in your laughter.

    Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
    I can only support you, encourage you,
    and help you when you ask.

    I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
    from your values, from me.
    I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
    But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
    room to be yourself.

    I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
    But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
    and put them back in place.

    I can't tell you who you are.
    I can only love you and be your friend.

    Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
    Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
    Just walk beside me and be my friend.
