God has been so incredibly good to me! He deserves better... He has blessed me with a wonderful husband, children, grandchildren and friends. At 62-years-old I would like to give Him the gift of a healthy body, not weighed down by extra pounds.

Member Since: 7/30/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My desire is to be able to live the rest of my years on this earth being as healthy as possible--to be able to play with my grandchildren, work in my garden and enjoy life as fully as God intends.

My Program:
I have recently changed my plan to the You on A Diet plan. The diet is very much in line with the Mediterranean diet--fruits, veggies, nuts, mono-unsaturated oils. I'm loving the diet and having great success. I am a member of Curves, and I work in my garden as much as possible.

Personal Information:
I am a mother of 6 and grandmother of 18. grandchildren. We have one grandchild who is Down Syndrome and 2 who are autistic. They are very, very special to us as are all our grandchildren. My husband is retired Navy; we traveled a lot for half our married life. I worked in hospice, public health and mental health until recently. We now own a small farm in northeast Georgia where we raise pygmy goats and have pasture ornament horses, Great Pyrenees, muscovey ducks and 2 cats.

Other Information:
I love music, gardening and reading. My taste in music and reading is eclectic--classical music, blue grass, praise & worship, big band, 60''s & 70''s; historical biographies, Christian non-fiction and Janet Evanovich.

    Hi Donna! Thank you so much for your encouraging message on my page. In addition to Curves I also go to Weight Watchers. The weight is coming off very slowly but I am happy to be heading in the right direction. We have some things in common aside from weight. I have 3 sons and 1 wonderful daughter in law. So far no grandbabies and Yes, I am ready--they are not! Our middle son has both physical and cognitive disabilities. He is quite independent and 'works' at his voluteer jobs when he is healthy enough. He is very social and loves life. I am a nurse and have spent the last 25 years working as an Early Childhood Consultant in a home based Early Intervention Program. I love to read and I think I have read nearly everything Janet Evanovich has written--gotta love her.
    You are doing amazingly well with your weight loss. I wish you continued success on your journey.

    Hello to my "kindred spirit" -

    I wanted to give you a personal "Thank You" for you, your husband and your family -- for the sacrifices that you have all made, that I might take advantage of all the freedoms that I so richly enjoy in this country.

    "Freedom" is not "FREE" and I know that your husband and family along with all the other veteran families have paid a price that is higher than we can repay.

    From the bottom of my heart - and with Great Gratitude, I say:
    "Thank you - and God Bless America"

    Love ya'

    People come and go in a person's lives but I am glad God sent me a forever friend when He sent you in my life.
