I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I have very high tryglycerides--at the peak it was over 600. I lost 20 lbs 4 years ago and got the tryglyceride number down to 200. Even though I only gained 5 lbs back, that number has creeped back up to over 350. Doc says I need to lose 20 more lbs to get that number under 150 or go on a RX. I really do not want to do that.

I now weigh 171 lbs. Doc wanted me down to 140. Not gonna happen. So the compromise is I will go down to 148. It is really hard getting back into the mind set of more vegetables, more exercise (I have gotten REALLY lazy about that!), and smaller portions.

My volunteer work includes the local Boys & Girls Club. Right now we are trying to start a book club--or two. I also volunteer for the local Main Street Association. The main goal is to preserve and keep our downtown a vital part of our community.

I am one day older than George Clooney. My mom was devastated to find out that she was old enough to be his mother.

I have had a REALLY BIG crush on Tom Selleck since 1983. It has never gone away!
