"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Ghandi

Member Since: 9/20/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
To lose a total of 90 lbs and get the excess weight off my knees and hips.
To get into the habit of exercising, even if it is just 10 minutes on the exercise bike.
To encourage my husband by example to get with the program, too.

My Program:
I'm keeping a food diary and keeping track of my calories daily. I weigh myself every Friday and keep track of that so that I know when I need to make adjustments.

Personal Information:
My hobby is having hobbies and interests: Quilting, stained glass, cross stitch, writing, nursing (my livelihood), my pets, and being a granny are a few.

I am a nurse and a social worker. Of the two nursing wins hands down. My specialties over the years have been critical care, gerontology, and psychiatry. Unfortunately, I am a disabled veteran and, at present, I am unable to work due to my physical condition. Add a neuromuscular disease and it makes exercising very difficult. I know that losing about 90 pounds will have a great impact on my ability to do the things I love, though, so I will keep on trying.

My kids are grown and both Iraq war veterans. I have one grandson, McCade, who is 5 and his daddy is my oldest son.. My pets are Twinkle the cat (a rescue), Scheister the mini Dachshund, and Baer, my Scottie.

My husband and I are both native Texans and are in Oklahoma temporarily until he retires.

Other Information:
If you do not stand firm in your faith, then you will not stand at all. Isaiah 7:9
