Hi, my name is Mary and I'm pretty much just trying to lose some weight so I can be hassle free while I'm in the military. I hate being overweight so that's why I'm here.
The top pic is my dog, Fitz. He's playing with one of those squeaky weenie dogs from Petsmart.
The second pic is my favorite cousin, Nessa. I just love her and I'm proud of her for taking her health seriously and for doing such an awesome job losing weight!
The bottom pic is me last Halloween. I'm heavier now but like I said above, that's why I'm here. Oh, I'm dressed as Jane Austen. No one at church got it either.
I am also a member of one of the chapters of the Red Hat Society in Searcy. My mom started it a few years ago and it's actually fun. I'm not a Red Hatter yet, I wear a pink hat. I try to wear my winter pink hat with ear flaps as much as possible.


Member Since: 7/5/2006

Fitness Minutes: 808

My Goals:
I just want to lose about 40lbs. The thing that is holding me back right now is I keep sabotaging myself everytime I lose a bit of weight. I need to stop doing that.


My Program:
I try to exercise everyday but give myself 2 days a week to miss if I have to. I have bad knees so I can't do too much but I walk, ride my bike five miles and sometimes I run/walk. I hate to run though, so I don't do that very often.



Personal Information:
I am from Arkansas and that's where I live. I was active duty Air Force for four years and I was stationed in VA. I've been back in AR since 2005 and I am in the Air National Guard in Fort Smith.


Other Information:
I'm an avid literature fan and I love Jane Austen. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice and my favorite literary character is Mr. Darcy. He's so much my favorite that I named my dog Fitz after him.
