I actually started on January 13, 2014 because 13 has always been a LUCKY number for me! So I have a little weight loss to boast of before joining!

My Program:
I am keeping a food log My calorie goal is to cut out 200-250 calories per day in order to lose 1/2 lb. per week. I have ordered new exercise weights and a video, "Firming over 50." I do plan to get in at least 10 minutes of exercise daily, to begin with!

Personal Information:
I live in Middle Tennessee. I am 75 years old and I have four children, two granddaughters, & two great-granddaughters. I am a widow and I live happply with my cats...but I won't tell you how many cats I have. You might think I am a nut!

Other Information:
I am a devoted Catholic, avid reader, and play the piano and organ. Usually on weekends, I play for three Masses unless the guitar group takes pity on me and decides to give me a break. At present, I work for my church as parish secretary and, although my kids ask me when I'm quitting, I have no plans to do so!!!.

There are times in one's life that can be very challenging. That is where I am right now. I found this perfect quote from a truly great baseball player whom I know went through very tough times.

Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And donít pray when it rains if you donít pray when the sun shines. -Leroy Satchel Paige

So I will keep my head up, pray a lot and find a way with God's help to get through this hard time.
