Hi everyone,

I am looking forward to connecting with some of you as we venture together on this journey of getting to a more healthy weight and trimmer self.

I am 52 years old, a mother of 3 children, my oldest daughter just starting college, middle daughter in high school, and youngest a son in middle school.

About 4 years after my son was born I realized that I was not losing the baby weight and in fact had gained quite a bit more. That was new to me as I had always been able to maintain a healthy weight and not really worry about my eating habits. It took me a while to face the reality and I joined a 6 week health class and lost 15 lbs by changing my eating habits and exercising more. I enjoyed being in a group working toward similar goals and we all benefited from each other's encouragement and success.

Seven years later, I am back up those 15 lbs plus 15 more on top of that. How did that happen? Well, that's a rollercoaster of a story, stress of life, changing jobs, .... you know how it goes.

I do not want to feel sluggish anymore and I do not want to keep gaining weight and inviting health problems so I am committed to losing those 30 lbs and maybe a little more. I am encouraged by some of the weight loss and greater fitness I see going on with folks on this site and am looking forward to connecting with others to share ideas and encouragement.

Thanks for visiting my bio and please reach out to me so we can share this journey.
