I am 49 years old and have been a "stress eater" or "emotional eater" for as long as I can remember. The last few years I have found myself with high blood pressure, fatigue, and borderline diabetes. I am ready to make some lasting changes. Thanks to my niece, Lori, for telling me about SparkPeople. I thought she was saying "SmartPeople" at first (she is extremely smart, has her PhD), so I wasn't sure if I would qualify to join-- anyway, I don't want to be 50 and fat. Worse yet, I don't want to be dead and fat!
I'm ready so here goes!

Member Since: 12/7/2006

Fitness Minutes: 760

My Goals:
I want to buy smaller jeans, I want my thin face back, I want to be healthier and not have to take medicine for cholesterol and high blood pressure. I also want to ride my horse and not look and feel so awkward in front of people.

My Program:
Starting slow...printed one week menu and grocery list today and bought the food I need to start eating healthier. As far as exercise goes, my plan is to walk at the park on my lunch hour or just walk around our property in the evenings. I don't have any other major plan at the moment other than less calories in and move more.

Personal Information:
I live in a small Texas town with my husband, 2 youngest children (the other 3 are grown), 4 horses, 2 cats, 5 dogs, and 1 African dwarf frog.

Other Information:
I am learning to ride horses even though I broke my back in a fall from a horse 3 years ago. I am very determined to improve my barrel racing time. I work as a medical office manager and have 5 kids and 6 grandkids with 1 more grandchild on the way.
