Sadly, my mother in law passed away in October, 2011. I couldn't make better health choices for her.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Today I make my first step. Going from 252 down to 175 will not be easy and it will not be fast. But it will happen.

Member Since: 11/6/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,802

My Goals:
New goal: Simply to get healthy and hopefully, in the process get below 200 pounds

My Program:
Make healthy food choices, drink lots of water, do some sort of cardio exercise every day. It is a privilege and a blessing to have the health that allows me to be active. And I WILL get below 200 by the spring.

Personal Information:
I am a country girl from North Carolina. I am a stay at home mom with two beautiful children; a grown daughter that is a junior in college and a boy that is 13. I am a Christian and attend a Baptist church where I am very active and involved.
I love movies and music. I enjoy playing piano and going to yard sales. I also love writing (I've had one novel published). I've been married almost 30 years to a wonderful man that loves me no matter what size I am. I weighed 135 when he married me and weigh close to 250 now!! I don't want to ever be skinny like I was then, but to be healthier; heart disease runs in my family. My brother had a severe heart attack at only 41. I want to live a long, healthy life and some day enjoy grandchildren!

Other Information:
My favorite movie would probably be Forrest Gump, but I love lots of movies! I think the perfect vacation would be to a mountain cabin with my family. Fall is my favorite time of year. I have never paid full price for anything! I am a thrift store junkie. Above all, I am in love with Jesus Christ and want His light to shine thru me.

    I have had clients that refused to paint their paneled walls. After viewing pictures of what their room could look like painted, they changed their minds. It brightens up the room and makes it appear entirely a different space. I am sorry your family won't support you to transform your den to your liking. Personally, I would do it anyway. I never listen to my family. lol

    Hi. I saw your profile picture; you playing piano.... I play also. Read your blog & I've been there many times. What is helping me now (on SP since July) is not focusing on my weight. I'm focusing on getting healthier; eating better & moving more

    I'm just getting going on this... let's lose some weight together! I don't want to fluff up more during the Holidays and I'd love to feel better to ring in the New Year! We can do this! I'd like to get around your weight goal... it's not easy but it's possible! Small Steady changes will get us there...and keep us there!
