I am retired because of an injury, in 2012. I joined a gym in October of 2014 and have lost 20 pounds since. I have 50 more pounds to lose. I love working out and sweating, I feel like I've accomplished something.
I have dogs at home and a husband of 21 years. I love to garden and then can what I've grown, nothing like a fresh tomato.
Working out has made me feel so much better and has changed my health already.

My Goals:
I joined Planet Fitness on October 8, 2014 weighing in at 220. On January 1, 2015 I weighed 199.
I want to lose 5 pounds a month with my weigh ins on the 8th of the month.
By my birthday this year, December 12th, I want to weigh 145 and have a 26" waist again. My triglycerides will lower themselves with all the weight loss and healthier eating.

My Program:
I have been tracking my food for some time now, it helps me to see problem times and times to be rewarded.
I have been glued to the treadmill and loving it. I push everyday to exceed my calories burned and miles walked.

Personal Information:
After retiring and having 3 surgeries on my neck, I was working with a pain management doctor. We finally found a medication that helped reduce my pain without KO-ing me. All the meds and laying around for a few years caused my triglycerides to ski to over 1300. I was 52 and on my way to a stroke, fast. My weight was out of control, 236 on a 6'-1" small boned frame. Motivation!

Other Information:
I love old movies, black and white with Bette Davis are the best. My husband and I love to cook together and have enjoyed the changes in our menu.

    You know what's REALLY fun?
    Going to and making a BOOK.
    I had written a lullaby for each of my kids over the years and when i discovered shutterfly, a friend showed me how to load up photos of each of the kids and write their own lullaby next to it.
    The most awsome part was writing on the binding the name of 'my book' and the 'author's ' name.

    Thank you for the encouragement, Beth. Writing would be a good thing...because, quite frankly...I'm broke.
    Hubby's disabled with spinal stenosis and I'm busy raising children, homeschooling and caring for my Mom's needs, so a job doesn't seem feasible. Too bad writing isn't an easy way to earn money.
    I'm taking donations at.....
