My name is Jean and I've finally gotten serious about losing weight so here I am. :) So far I have been really excited because I believe all the tools are helping me to achieve my goal.
I have had a long struggle with cancer (4 years!) but I've been in remission for 1 1/2 years. Wow doesn't time fly? I still have some problems with my kidney as a result but I can at least eat healthier right? My main objective is to lose at least 50 - 60 pounds (hopefully more) by October '08. I will be having surgery then and I know it will all go a lot smoother if I do.
God is good and I know with His help and all your encouragement, I will reach my ultimate goal.
Happy Trails to all.

My Goals:
My goal is to become a little more active each week. This is probably the hardest thing for me to do but I told a friend about this site and we are going to start walking this spring. I do walk some but I know I need to pick up the pace. It sure helps to have a friend to walk with.

My Program:
To achieve my goals I am drinking water, water and more water. I began walking 3 times a week and I will make it 5 days a week once our wonderful Ohio weather permits. I also use the nutritional tracker which I am lost without. It's amazing how much I was eating before I started tracking. OUCH.

Personal Information:
My name is Jean and I live in Ohio as I have my whole life. I'm now in the over 50 category (did I actually confess that????) LOL Trust me it doesn't get easier as you get older to take off the weight so try to keep it off so you are not in the same boat I am.

Other Information:
I enjoy gardening, cooking, relaxing with my family and I love sports. I particularly love going to the Cleveland Indians games when I am able. I love Football too but it's just too expensive to go to a game. Some of my favorite movies are the ones put out by Tyler Perry. I love Madea goes to Jail. If you haven't seen it and need a really good laugh, this is the one to see. It's actually a stage play but you will laugh your head off.

Up until the time I became ill, I enjoyed backpacking or just hiking. One of my goals is to get back to my 6 mile hikes and 2 mile backpacking with a 60 pound pack. I love being outdoors and I look forward to being in shape to really get the full enjoyment out of it.
