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.

    You are my inspiration and I wanna thank you,
    For without you, I don't know what I would do.
    You've changed my life around,
    And turned my frown upside down.
    You have showed me the way,
    So that I will never stray.
    For this I wanna thank you again,
    For staying close by and being a friend.
    And to end this off I just wanted to say,
    That if you need a friend,
    I'll be there till the very end.

    I noticed today
    My smile seems brighter.
    When I walk- it's a bit more brisk.
    And the sun seems
    less oppressive and more...

    I noticed today
    my whole world is less tragic,
    And filled with a few more rainbows.
    I feel...

    I noticed today
    I have a true friend.
    Knowing this makes everything... better.
    Smiling, my face to the bright sun, I whistle

    Thank You, Friend

    Thank you, friend, for all the things
    That mean so much to me--
    For concern and understanding
    You give abundantly.

    Thanks for listening with your heart;
    For cheering me when I'm blue;
    For bringing out the best in me;
    And just for being you.

    Thanks for in-depth conversation
    That stimulates my brain;
    For silly times we laugh out loud;
    For things I can't explain.

    For looking past my flaws and faults;
    For all the time you spend;
    For all the kind things that you do,
    Thank you; thank you, friend.
