Hi all! I''m a 61 yr old female looking for friends to chat with during my journey. I was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and anemic. I need to change my life style and so far this app has helped me lose a little weight. Still a long way to go. I need inspiration every day.I have trouble with exercise and must be very careful. Anyone else out there going through the same thing? I would be pleased to have you on my team!

Member Since: 8/7/2015

My Goals:
To be as fit and healthy as I can be. To do this I WILL change my lifestyle! I WILL NOT be a pre-diabetic or anemic any longer. I WILL NOT let my fibromyalgia and back pain define who I am. I truly believe that God will see me through til the end.

My Program:
After 20 years of inactivity, I will use every tool at my disposal (that my physical limitations will allow) to get fit. I'm starting with gentle stretching and Coach Nicole's chair workouts. In 6 months I plan to be able to use the Trio Trainer I bought. It has 2 different bike settings and is an elliptical.

Personal Information:
Missouri born and raised living in the greater Kansas City, MO area. I am the grandmother of 2 boys, Devlyn - age 14 and Aidan - age 9...Grandma's not ready for her oldest to be a freshman in high school *sigh*. My husband of 19 years and I have 2 "furry babies" (rescue dogs) that keep us on our toes.

Other Information:
Favorite TV shows - Castle and Bones

Favorite Movies - Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts and Long Kiss Goodnight with Geena Davis

Favorite books - anyone who writes a good murder mystery

    Have added you as a friend. I am 80 y/o and need to lose 90 lbs. I am diabetic and on pills, no insulin shots and don't even want to get there. I have arthritis in my hips and knees, especially knees and mobility is quite a challenge and I use a cane to walk and need more than a cane to negotiate stairs.

    Well I am here to lose weight and improve the quality of mu life. Found your profile interesting and added you as a friend.

    PS: My Oldest daughter is 62
