I'm Toni and I live in California. I'm 63 and have been married to the same guy since 1965. I have 2 kids and 3 grandkids. I've battled with weight for 30 years I'm sure. I have a terrible time losing it. I hope this time I win because I want to be around to see my beautiful grandchildren grow up.

With all the wonderful SP members I have honor to be teammates with, I think that goal is moving closer to reality.

Member Since: 3/30/2007

Fitness Minutes: 12

My Goals:
I want to feel better healthwise and how I feel about my self. I want to ease the pain of arthritis and hope it helps some other health issues as well.

My Program:
I am very faithful in watching my calorie intake. I stretch when I can. My knee isn't healed enough yet to do much more. AND, I'm getting really skinny fingers from all the typing I do on SP....LOL!

Personal Information:
I'mToni and my husband of 43 years and I live on the central coast of CA....BEST weather around. We have 3 grandchild who live on a farm in OK. We miss them and our daughter terribly. Our son lives WV(no kids yet). So we have no family around us. I sure miss that support that I know I would get from them.

Other Information:
Our daughter is my inspiration. She has lost at least 80 lbs. and is running in half-marathons now. She's doing great. She is studying for degree in education, working full-time, running the snackbar for games at the high school, taking care of the farm and most important, raising 3 of greatest grandkids you could hope for. She really is SUPERWOMAN!!

    Hi remember me, just had to say hello, and to say how well you are looking.
    Lots of water under the bridge since we last were in touch. Im back here again but for health reasons so its different I suppose.
    Wishing you well.

    Just cruising around pages & thought I would share with you a few quotes I found today . . . .

    “The future depends on what we do in the present.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

    “Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.” ~ Leon J. Suenes

    “The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

    “We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.” ~ Tim McGraw

    Have a great day & a healthy week!

    Greetings Topaztoo!

    It has been awhile since I have touched base with you, so I am trying to do better.

    My bestest friend, Jennifer Evans, an independent traditional gospel recording artist is working on her SECOND CD. Please check out her website and sample her FIRST CD "Delayed But Not Denied". She WROTE every word and note of the music on this cd EXCEPT for Jesus Loves Me which she sings Acappella(sings without music).

    If you like traditional, old school gospel music, you will love her as I do. Check out her website and story at:

    Hit me back and let me know what you think. Her FIRST cd is my daily devotional, I know her second will be the same.
