Me playing my fiddle. My hair is cut short now. I'm only an OK fiddler, but I have fun. :-)

Hi. :-)

I'm 58. I weigh 188.5lbs. I'm 5'1". I'm a homemaker who is trying to get a novel written. My favorite things to do (since I was in late elementary school) are all sit down things but I didn't start getting fat until my early 20s. I don't have a favorite sport except fencing and it's hard to find anywhere to fence. I don't have a favorite exercise although I do enjoy Wii Fit Plus bicycling. I tolerate doing Leslie Sansone's DVDs.

I have battled depression and negativity all my life and that just makes doing this all the more difficult. I joined a little over a year ago and left because I wasn't getting anywhere. This time I can't seem to even get started. I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT & GET IN BETTER SHAPE!! But every time I get on here I get stressed out and depressed.

Keep me in thought and prayer if you are willing to.

My Goals:
I'm so afraid of setting goals. More often than not they end up being symbols of my failure as opposed to being markers of success.

I want to finish my mystery novel and try to get it published.

I want to lose weight and be in better shape, but I don't like thinking of it as "living a healthy lifestyle" for some reason. It sounds cheesy to me.

My Program:
I don't know what I'm doing as my "program" other than trying to hang around here, do the SparkCoach stuff and hope something starts to get through to me.

Personal Information:
I'm in Central Illinois.

Most of the things I enjoy most in life are things you do sitting down. I didn't choose them for that reason at all - it just worked out that those are the things I like.

Reading, writing, arts & crafts, watching some TV or movies.

Other Information:
My favorite book (since 1966) is "Lord of the Rings". I have a tattoo of J.R.R.Tolkien's monogram on my left ankle.
