I am venturing into a new program of health and fitness. I am hoping for inspiration and support from others in my age group. I am mostly a stay at home but busy wife with an empty nest. I face tempations each day. I want to conquer those bad eating habits and I need help.

Update..4/9/08..I have been on this site for over a yr now and can report that I have made great progress. I have lost 40#'s..feeling so much better and lighter on my feet plus gone down a few sizes. I know that without the help from all of you that this would not have happened. I have never kept so motivated and encouraged this long so I just want to THANK all of the wonderful friends that I have met here..from the bottom of my heart~~which I am sure is much healthier now! I go forward with a smile and knowing that I will reach my goal of losing another 20#'s!

Member Since: 2/22/2007

Fitness Minutes: 45

My Goals:
I would like to attain a healthy weight so that I have energy to travel and enjoy life. My body seems to want to set at one point so I have a hard time keeping it off once I lose.

My Program:
I am trying to eat healthier and add some exercise to my schedule. Food has always been a well loved friend.

Personal Information:
I will be 62 in Sept. and I live in South Dakota. I've been married for 39 years to a great guy and have a blended family of a step son, 2 step-daughters, 2 gransons~both 11 and 2 daughters who range in age from 31 to 26. I have done many things in my life...owned a jewelry shop, a marina and cafe, a flower shop. I love life, my family,animals, my friends and my beautiful state of SD.

Other Information:
I enjoy movies, love tv~~too much which adds to my somewhat sedentary lifestyle, Labs/Pets, reading and flowers~~no green thumb here but I am a great floral designer. I work with my daughter to rescue, foster and adopt pets who need homes. I love animals and they give us so much. It is rewarding and often times sad but even one saved is a wonderful deed.

    You have such a positive and uplifting viewpoint on life. I am 58, a mother of 4, gramma to 11 and since I started this weight loss journey Dec. 20th I have gone from 242 to 208 so I know that it can be done, and I was travelling for 25 days in February so know also that travelling and losing weight can be accomplished while having fun along the way. Congratulations and welcome aboard.

    So glad to have you as part of SP. I think you are going to enjoy it very much. I love the comments, and the help I have received. It is so hard being a stay home person...so it is good to use that free time that you would normally "eat" to do projects. My thing is refinishing furniture.
    Seems from your personal information that you are a woman of many talents...and a business woman at that. I think that is pretty impressive...shows you can go after something and get it. Now you just have to focus on going after new eating habits, incorporating exercise into your life and hey...you are accomplishing yet another great thing...finding that healthy you.
