Getting fit is a goal that seems daunting. I am still able to work and work hard. We have horses and dogs along with our kids. We travel to places like Honduras and work with the people there. I am able to work....and for that I am thankful. But I feel the aches and pains starting to increase because of my weight and am trying hard to get some of the extra off so that when I am old I will not deal with diabetes and such. I want to remain active in my senior years. I have kids that enjoy it very much when I do things with them and grandbabies that are looking forward to that active time as well. So.... here we go.....

Thanks for the welcome. It is appreciated!

Welcome Gini! I've only had 4 kids, but I've packed on plenty of weight over the 7 years since my last child was born! I've been homeschooling for 14 years. I think SP goes together beautifully with homeschooling!

Hey Everyone,
I am a 51 year old mom of 11 (6 are married and on their own) who has homeschooled for 20 years. I feel fairly confident in my homeschooling, but over the years of babies and books, I have managed to add WAY too many pounds to my poor tired body. I am looking for a way to cut the pounds and get healthier that will include also getting my family fed, and my homeschooling done. Anybody out there like me?
