I was here before, 2010 - 2016. I never was able to reach a "BMI level for my height" but being 4'11", I would have to be placed on a medieval torture machine to make that happen! Lol! But, I have always, kept working on my "LIFESTYLE CHANGES" and so believe in keeping that going.

2016 Started a total change for me medically, and I was the "Healthy One" all these years. Well, a Breast Reduction, Breast & Lymph Node Cancer, Radiation, 2018 - 2019, Hernia, make that THREE LARGE, that needed to be repaired with Mesh, then I had a Brachioplasty, aka, Arm Reduction, and March 2020, I am scheduled to repair SCAR TISSUE, that causes those pesty hernias to feel like they are pulling at me. So excess skin will be removed to "help" that horrible feeling.

So even though, I TRULY LOVE TO EXERCISE, especially the pool, I have to wait until I am done with surgery, and fulled recovered to complete some of those tasks. But, I promise I will!

Next, Here I Come, and I am glad to be back.....

My Goals:
I like to say, "GET R DONE" and "FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED" as two important Mantras for me. I Can Honestly Say, I have made many of those "Lifestyle Changes" not DIET, that have made me progress to where I am Right Now. But as I have stated before, I must "Continue to GET R DONE" with a attitude. So my Goal this year, is As Soon As Possible, after my surgery, scheduled March 4, 2020, and appropriate Recovery Time, I will ......."GET R DONE!" One Day, One Step, One Small Lifestyle Change at a time.

My Program:
As always, LIFESTYLE CHANGES. I am making more small changes, for me it is and never will be a Diet! Lifestyle changes, forever!

Personal Information:
Happily Married, Wife, to the man that inspires me, makes me laugh, and supports me every day. Mother of One daughter, born 1977, C-section, yes the cute little Blue-eyed Blonde with me climbing out of the pool. And "Mimi" to Three, need I say, Adorable, Smart Grandchildren. Oldest a Young Teen 15, Blond, blue-eyed Boy, and Two Girls, a "Tween" at 12 years old, with Dark Eyes and Dark Hair, and then our little pistol sassy, 8 years old, with Blond Hair and Brown Eyes! Each one, I just am over joyed with their personalities and intelligence. By the way, I am a senior "golden age" at 69, but still moving as best I can,

    Yep people told me that most liquids count as water and I still don't met the goal everyday but I've gotten better. Guess I just don't get thirsty. I've added coffee and green tea. Enjoy your day

    Hey Fran, did you get settled in. We miss going to the community pool. I'm great but Bobby's heart doc is watching him closely he's been sick over 1yr. I'm slowly losing but I have many NSVs. Sending you sunshine 🌞😎 and positive vibes your way
