I may be her but I’m going to try to be me. The real me. All of me.

It’s going to be a fight but one way or another “I” am going to be healthy. Losing 74 pounds is going to make this an uphill battle. Having diabetes slow my climb is a bummer but I can’t give up.

I’m ready for this challenge. When I’m going to actually start this journey I’ll be coming out fighting.



Member Since: 8/13/2020

Fitness Minutes: 76

My Goals:
To Lose 75 pounds before it kills me My life depends on that.
Another biggie is waking up and feeling like I actually slept and then climb out of bed with no pain at all. That folks would be a miracle.
I wish I could say to lose weight so I could play with my kids but they done grown up on me. My cats are snobs so no go there. It’s really too bad I don’t like dogs much. How exciting would it be to fetch the stick first?


My Program:
I’m not sure what program is supposed to be mine. Is it how I plan on losing weight and being at the top of my game?



Personal Information:
This should be pretty simple. I am me. Me being a 52 year old girl. I just can’t see myself acting like the 50 something people I know and see around me.
I have 3 great kids. 31, 32 & 22. No grandkids yet though. I’m not sure but I think I really want to be a grandma. I don’t have the patience I did back then. I love babies. Little babies. Just like how people love kittens but once they grow out of the kitten stage they become disenchanted. Okay best get off that topic.
I am married 19 years to a great guy. I have 2 of the best cats in the world. Gremlin. My baby who really thinks he’s a dog and Finn who is jealous when we give attention to Gremlin. They love each other though.
Do I get extra credit if I get more personal? Like my shoe size is an 8. I can eat a whole watermelon by myself in about 3 to 4 days. I count the squares of the toilet paper when I use it. That’s it for now.


Other Information:
Okay. A year ago we moved back to Texas from living in Minnesota for 10 years. First thing I will say is I HATE snow. And then there is the wind chill, it gets to -45°. Crazy.

    emoticon Taking the first step emoticon

    emoticon Once you take the first step of a workout, the rest just seems to fly by. The first step can even be easy. Begin with a walking program to build endurance, then move to jogging and running. emoticon Just keep moving and make healthy choices on this fit Monday! emoticon

    I hope to hear from you and have your encouragement and support as well!
