At this moment, I am trying to find the words to describe where I am and why I'm here without sounding negative. I have battled with my weight and self-image for my entire life, and while I feel I know more than I used to know, I'm at my heaviest, feeling unhealthier than I ever have before. I'll be 53 next month, and while age doesn't shape my views of myself, I fear I'm feeling what it feels like to get older. But I do not want that to define me. I want to be healthier. I want to make those right decisions at the right time, i.e., decide NOT to eat that popcorn right before bed. I want to end the cravings for things that are not good for me, but learn to enjoy in moderation things that would fall into the category of an indulgence.

Member Since: 12/26/2016

Fitness Minutes: 170

My Goals:
To establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle for myself and my husband, to lose weight and get back to feeling a little more comfortable in my body.

My Program:
Pursuing a low carb / keto eating strategy.

Personal Information:
I'm married, have four children and three grandchildren. I love being a grandmother. I'm also an animal lover, owning a Siamese cat, Sammy, an Australian Shepherd, Ruckus, and two horses, an Irish Draught Mare, Ruby and a Quarter Horse gelding, Billy Boy. We are getting ready to bring a new Australian Shepherd home, a 10 month old female, who is named Merida, for now. We might be changing that, but at 10 months, I hate to disrupt her world even more.

Other Information:
When my life on this earth is over, I want to be known for my love for my Lord and Savior.
