Hi, my name is Darla, but I go by DAR. I live in Michigan and love three of the four seasons. I hate winter. Only good thing about winter is that Spring comes next. I have my MBA with an emphasis in Accounting. I just started a new job on July 31, 2020. I was hired in at a Mortgage Company, a whole new industry for me. We are extremely busy and overtime is pretty much the norm right now. I love dogs and have a Chocolate Cocker Spaniel named Brownie. I enjoy reading, gardening, camping, fishing, snorkeling, riding my bicycle, walking and I am trying to decide on whether I want to test for my 3rd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I also assist my instructor with Women's Self Defense Classes.

My Goals:
I would like to get down to a more healthy weight range of between 160 and 170,I will see how I look and feel once I get in that range. Any less and I may start to look anorexic. Lower my blood pressure and cholestrol. Also would like to quite smoking.

My Program:
I am following the nutrition guide and tracking the food I eat. Also working on portion control. Getting a minimum of 90 min. a week of cardio and strenght training. Working on exercising a minimum of 30 min. a day, 6 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live by Grand Rapids, MI. I have attained the rank of 2nd Dan ( 2nd degree Black Belt) in Tae Kwon Do and perhaps I will test for 3rd degree. I am not married nor do I have a man in my life at the moment. I do not have any kids either, except for my fur-baby.

Other Information:
I like camping, reading, kayaking, fishing, gardening, Tae Kwon Do, music, and dogs. I used to breed, train, and show Paint horses. I would like to try white water rafting and travel. I love seeing and learning new things. My brother bought a condo on North Hutchinson Island in Fort Pierce, FL and my mother (90 yr old with Dementia) and I will be flying to FL on January 10 and back on January 22. I have not been to FL since the 9th grade and that was in the 1970's. It has been a long time for my mother as well. We are Very Excited.

    Hi Dar, I'm in the 40 somethings group too...wishing us both success in taking off some wt by New Years day. During this time of the year, anything is better than gaining! BTW any luck figuring your signature box? Check to see if the scrolling ends right after your name and not any further down.
