My Name is Maria, originally from NY, but now live in Delaware -the first State. Hubby and I have been married 41 years this past March. We have one daughter who is married and lives 2 1/2 hours from us (boo hoo) They have blessed us with two beautiful granddaughters whom we love with all our heart. Two years ago, I retired after 26 years working as a supervisor for State of Delaware in the Teacher Licensure office.

I am now in the Winter 5% challenge with my furry Teddy family and I will give it my fullest and I will succeed. I have to succeed for myself and my family. I had a lot of unhealthy habits when I was working and some have lessened now that I am retired, but I want a healthy lifestyle. There is a size 10 inside yelling to come out and it's time she did.

5.Drink plenty of water. Fill up on water- not sugary snacks.
6. Give myself a break and realize I can't do it all at once.

My Program:
Stay within calorie range
Learn better substitutes for food choices
Keep the goal up front. I can do this
