I am Linda Simmons. I am 53 years old. I am married to a wonderful man, Bill for 17 years. I have four beautiful children who are now all adults. Bobby, Pam, Tony and Sean. I have six grandchildren, Courtney, Christian, Cole, Autumn, Maygan and Jordan. They are a joy. I am overweight by over 77 lbs and intend on losing this as soon as possible so that I can be more active and have more energy to give to my family.
