I'm a 50-something wife, mother, Gamma!, mother-in-law, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, student, professional, with 7 children/step-children, 3 sons-in-law and 3 beautiful granddaughters. I love what I do and who I am. I want to be the best ME I can be. That's why I'm here. This journey is so much easier, so much more FUN, with like-minded, caring people in your corner.

Here's to a healthier lifestyle!! Let's do this together!

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. -Eleanor Roosevelt


Accept your lack of perfection as normal and forgivable.


"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot."
- Eleanor Roosevelt


Set your own pace. When someone is pushing you, it's OK to tell them they're pushing.


Once in a while, turn down the lights, the volume, the throttle, the invitations. Less really can be more.


Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
