I have been here before. Some things look familiar; some have changed. You knew me as Grits 46 back in the day, and I'm returning after a couple of surgeries and signing up as a new SparkPeople person. Calling myself RiterGal because that's what I do -- write. I'll expand on this later.

For now, I NEED to lose weight. Recently had my gallbladder and some pesky gallstones removed, and instantly realized it's a good time to rethink healthy eating and getting a move on! So, here I am.

My Goals:
My goals include:

Above all, God first and then family. AND THEN:

1. Choosing a new healthy lifestyle.

2. Learning to enjoy exercise because it points me in a new, healthier direction.

3. Eating balanced meals.

4. Blogging once a week.

My Program:
1. New healthy lifestyle includes exercise and eating balanced meals.

2. Learning to enjoy exercise incudes joining a gym in January. Comes free with our health insurance!

3. Eating balanced meals includes more fruits and vegetables, more grains, and fewer junk food items.

4. Blogging is blogging!

Personal Information:
I live in Portland, OR, with my husband of 30 plus years. We're both retired and love our days together doing our thing. Bob loves designing and building things, and I love writing. So we're in separate ends of the house but love knowing the other one is here somewhere!

Other Information:
Being a writer, I also love reading what others have written. And hubby and I love classical music so our local station, 89.9, is on all day. We also love our Maggie, a sweet tuxedo kitty, who thinks she's in charge.
