Hi Folks. I'm a 47-year old girlette who needs to lose a few spare tyres.
This website is the motivation I need to help me to get the waistline (its currently a WASTE-line) that I have dreamed about.

Member Since: 2/21/2007

Fitness Minutes: 13,173

My Goals:
I'd love to be able to walk into a department store and be able to buy "off the peg" clothes.

My Program:
I walk my mutt Mac most days and now Spring is in the air I'm out in the garden doing bits and pieces most days.

Personal Information:
I'm from a fishing village in Skerries, Co. Dublin, Ireland. I'm married to Fran for 24 years and we have a son Colin who is 22 and studying Japanese language and culture. He is just back from spending a year abroad in Tokyo, Japan. So now our family is complete again....
Colin has been offered a job in Frankfurt for six months translating video games from Japanese to English and will be off on his travels again on 24th May.
Further Update
Our Colin is loving his job in Frankfurt. We were over with him this weekend ahd had a great time chilling out and chatting.
Yet another Update
Colin is still working away in Frankfurt. It hasn't lost its charm for him and we travel over and back once a month just for a hug and a gossip.
And yet another update:
Colin has been made permanent in his job in Frankfurt. In the current economic climate its a great achievement. We're very proud of him.

Other Information:
I love to read when I get the time. I love Jeffrey Deaver books,
I loved the early Scarpetta books but think that unfortunately the author has "gone off the boil".
I also love trashy easy to read novels. I love Patricia Scanlan books, Danielle Steele, and some Maeve Binchy books.
I used to do oil painting and sold everything I painted, but don't seem to have the time anymore.
Life is good though. I work hard for two good men - I appreciate what they do and they appreciate me.
