I an re-jumping into this journey. Been here quite awhile now and it's time to make the changes I've been dragging my feet on, especially the weight loss. Isn't it funny that something we want so bad, we don't always do what we need to do? I'm tired of being the "fat aunt" and it's time to get moving. Life is getting shorter and shorter and I need to stop hiding behind this weight.

I'm still single - anyone have a spare man I can borrow? I don't want to keep them just need someone to drive so I can enjoy the scenery! I am a professional who is burned out at my job but have been there 22 years and it's hard to leave. So I will make the best with what I have but keep my eyes opened for better opportunities. Or win the Powerball!

I believe in being positive - it makes the day so much better. The glass IS half full! And on most days the glass is running over!

Fitness Minutes: 153,737

My Goals:
Lose 2 to 3 pounds per week.

I have detailed steps that I will get posted as soon as I get them all down and clearly written.

LOL to get my detailed steps written out before the end of 2012.

My Program:
Reducing eating out and slowly weaning myself off of chocolate and sweet tea. Making a conscious effort of what goes into my mouth. I'm not following a set program (yet) but am for now focusing on moderation with exercise.

Personal Information:
Live in a town south of Omaha. Divorced but it was almost decades ago. No children but have 3 nephews and a wonderful niece. Am very proud of all of them.

I like to golf, travel and enjoying digging around in my flower pots - it's therapy!

Other Information:
Favorite Book: To Kill a Mockingbird

Favorite Movie: Apollo 13, The Bear, Ice Age (cracks me up)

Enjoy early American History - what a great country we built on the work of hard men and women!

Love to travel and especially up in the mountains. I've been to Yellowstone 13 times and can't get enough. I also like to visit old historical battlefields.

    Sorry I was behind in reading my comments on my page. Thanks for checking in with me regarding the team. I will always be there. Sometimes late. I need to make it a goal to post earlier on sundays, but it is so hard to do any of this in the morning on weekends...and sundays are ugly. I will do my best. Thanks for the words and the specialness in them. emoticon

    Thanks so much for checking in on me. I was really out of the loop in May! My husband and I took the kids to a water park and I got a small cut on my foot. I ended up with a staph infection, so that really messed me up last month. I wasn't able to exercise at all, which led me to give up on all of my goals. I know...not the smartest, but it is what I did. But I am back and I am focused. I wrote on our team thread that my husband and I are working together this summer to meet weight loss goals. If we each meet our goals, we are going to reward ourselves with a family backpacking tent! I know he really wants the tent, so that is (hopefully) going to force me to focus on my goal.
    Anyway, thanks again for checking in. I plan to be more involved and I look forward to getting to know everyone better!

    Thanks for the comment - I've been sick this week, some horrid bug that had me sore all over, my head about to split and food refusing to stay down. I'm pissed, because it seems like I can't get my momentum going - I had a great week, was really looking forward to more of my workouts and got felled by a bug but hard. I have some chest congestion left, but I'm thinking it'll be gone in another day or two and then I can get back to work.

    Here a hug for you (((hugs))); you deserve it. Thanks for posting on my blog yesterday. I think you and Ginette both did a fine job--when Ginette wasn't up to par you filled in quite nicely. You always have such a cheerful attitude and that is refreshing and encouraging. Hoping all of us hang in there with Ginette during June. Hoping you will agree to stay in here and continue to be our co-leader. You did a mighty fine job of it. emoticon emoticon emoticon
