I'm a 50-something wife, mother, Gamma!, mother-in-law, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, student, professional, with 7 children/step-children, 3 sons-in-law and 4 beautiful granddaughters. I love what I do and who I am. I want to be the best ME I can be. That's why I'm here. This journey is so much easier, so much more FUN, with like-minded, caring people in your corner.

Here's to a healthier lifestyle!! Let's do this together!

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. -Eleanor Roosevelt


Accept your lack of perfection as normal and forgivable.


"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot."
- Eleanor Roosevelt


Set your own pace. When someone is pushing you, it's OK to tell them they're pushing.


Once in a while, turn down the lights, the volume, the throttle, the invitations. Less really can be more.


Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Hi Andrea. I should come to the team more often but I also have to do another team. I have been thinking of you and hope you and your family are okay after the tornadoes. My family lives in Richardson and they were okay. Take care
