I'm from Texas and starting this fitness journey in October, 2011.

I will keep this verse in mind as I move ahead: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

I enjoy reading and games such as sudoku, scrabble, 42, and spider solitare. I'm a fan of the Baylor U. Lady Bears.

Glad to have you visit my page.

    Hi! Mary

    Thanks for adding me.
    I'm from the country-we live on a ranch about 30 miles west of Waco, near a little town called Oglesby.
    Hasn't this weather been a treat after the "long, hot summer"!
    Looking forward to chatting with you here.
