All of my life has been a battle of the "buldge" I love to cook, bake and eat! For many years I have tried to put a healthy "spin" on cooking but it just isn't enough. Now that the weight is problematic to my joints I need to get serious.

I am retired and live in FL with my best friend, my husband, who for 52 years has shared this adventure called life with me. We have 3 children on earth and one in heaven and we have been blessed with 9 "perfect" grandchildren...LOL

Enter a summary of your gIoals, or just a few you would like to share.
I want to live a healthy life and do what I can to take care of this body. It is wearing out and I haven't always been kind to it... I used to smoke and I have always loved to eat the wonderful things I love to bake.

My Program:
I am really going to focus on the Nutrition Tracker. Just love that it not only tracks calories but also creates an awareness of nutrient balance in your diet.

Because of my knee problems my exercise is limited. I will focus on upper body weight training and the stationary bike, recommended by my Dr.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in PA. I have been married to the same wonderful guy for 51 years. We have three children on earth and one in heaven and we have 9 fabulous grandchildren. We are retired and live in FL.

Other Information:
We spend a lot of our time doing God's work. We are Catholics and my husband has been a Deacon for 31 years. I love to read, knit and spend time with our children and grandchildren.
