I am 56 years old, married, with 3 adult daughters, and 4 beautiful granddaughters and 2 handsome grandsons. I am a medical assistant in a busy family practice and love getting to encourage my patients to make better choices for their health. In January 2014 my daughter and I joined the local gym and began working with a trainer. I go to the gym 5 days a week and ran my first 5k in September 2014. On July 4th I ran my first 10k - the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. I am still 8 pounds away from my goal - I reached my goal weight last September, but gained 8 pounds during the winter and just can't seem to get it off. So here I am again, looking for encouragement and new ideas.
