I'm starting my new lifestyle change for a better future!!!
I'm a mother of 5 daughters and a loving husband. I am constantly busy with work or family which has been my excuse for not following a health plan. I have arthritis which has been my excuse for not exercising. I know I have to start taking better care of myself because I want the energy and health to keep up with my grandkids.

Iv'e tried all kinds of Quick weight loss plans and lost upto 20lbs...only to gain the weight back once I started eating "normal". I realize now, my "normal" isn't healthy and I need to change from lots of junk food to healthy food. I want this to be a life change not a quick change.

Member Since: 10/17/2010

Fitness Minutes: 505

My Goals:
I want energy.
I would like to be healthy.
I want to stop wasting my life by sitting on a couch. I want to live my life to the fullest!

My Program:
I am eating between 1200 to 1500 calories per day.

I am increasing my activity by starting at 15 minutes per day. I know that sounds like so little, but I've not done anything for years so that 15 minutes is challenging to me.

Personal Information:
I live in Ohio. I am a 59 year old married mother of 5 daughters. I have RA, Lupus and fibro. I am looking forward to my first great-grandchild!!

Other Information:
I like photography, crafts, scrapbooking and flower gardening. I LOVE to facepaint !! I enjoy helping my community by volunteering when I can. This is an important value I teach my children and grandchildren

    Hey, I'm glad you're back :) Sorry, it took a while to respond. I was off for over a month. I hope all is well.

    I sure will keep making music and adding humor to our world! Had my first jam session with my new electric bass a week ago Friday. I was sooo high! What a blast! Going to jam again this coming Friday. So much fun to start something new at 73! Thanks for the goodie!
    Peace, Gayle
