I made a pledge to make some changes in my life, so I joined the Fall 5% Challenge in October 2020. The 8 week commitment kick started my journey and I lost 10#. I’m determined to carrying on this commitment and life-style changes. I struggle sticking to good habits, finding myself too easily slipping back into unhealthy habits.

Pre-menopause hit me hard and I packed on the tummy weight. Commuting 75 miles/day and eating fast food lunches didn't help either! My mother had has health issues which made me realize that I didn't want to be like her in 20 years. I want to be more like my 92 yo mother-in-law who walks a mile every day!

2020 IBC: 5 weeks -4#. BMI = 37.9
2021 5% Winter Challenge: 8 weeks GOAL -16#

My Program:
Eating better, drinking water (not pop), and exercising more. Sounds so simple, but I find myself struggling with these simple concepts.

Personal Information:
I'm a 53 yo working mother of two grown children, wife to my best friend, grandmother to a beautiful baby girl, and caretaker of a spoiled dog and cat. My 92 yo mother-in-law lives with us and is my inspiration for living a better lifestyle to keep my mind and body healthy.

Other Information:
I love to read, watch sports, do crossword puzzles, and crochet. My favorite place to be is outdoors rather it is on the lake, sitting at a campsite, or enjoying my back patio. I enjoy just "being" :)
