Hi! I'm a 52 year old lady. I started exercising a year ago, after having two heart attacks in 3 short months. Turned out that they were due to a very rare, deadly tumor on an adrenal gland. Nothing wrong with the heart, thank God. However, after spending over a month in the hospital with nothing to do but eat, and having quit smoking while there I have gained weight. I came home with orders to walk to rebuild the heart and found that I really enjoy the exercise. My age has also helped to add those inches to the waist line, my main goal being to lose some of them.

Well, that is old and outdated. Wrote it about 7 years ago. I now own a Curves Franchise, teach Zumba and am training for a half marathon in Utah, The Zion Half in March 2014.

Member Since: 5/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 190,149

My Goals:
My goal is to lose inches around the mid section, would be happy to lose about 10 pounds also.
As of today, 10/12/2013,my new goals are to build my business, finish my CPT with ACE and finish the Zion Half Marathon in March 2014

My Program:
I work out daily and my goal is for 1500 minutes per month. I wear a pedometer and try for 15000 steps daily. I aim for 8 glasses of water daily and keep calories around 1500.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in Northwest Pa. I love the outdoors and when time and weather allow I can usually be found outside cleaning out ponds, filling bird feeders or "playing in the dirt."

Other Information:
My favorite quote is "Reach for the moon, if you miss your still among the stars." Favorite song is "Someday" by Nickleback.

    Hi, I'm very new to this site actually your the first contact. I'm still trying to figure out how to get around it. I'm 55 yr old woman who just moved to the NY area from MN. I'm alittle displaced at the moment. I'm trying to find a way to keep modivated since I don't have any friends here yet. I hope this site keeps me going and connect with some great people. If you have any tips for me it would be greatly appreciated. I hope I do this right and it gets to you. Thank you Sharon
