My weight has been a battle all of my adult life...but now it's not just about my weight...I want to be healthy and be able to enjoy my kids and grandkids. We have a total of 5 kids: Two boys, ages 34 and 29, and four girls, ages 26, 25, 24, and 14. Right now, we have 5 grandkids, four boys (13, 10, 5, & 1) and a little girl (4 yr old). Serving a powerful and wonderful awesome God is most important in my life, and then comes taking care of my family. My Prince Charming is so supportive ...

My Prince Charming is so supportive of me, and loves me no matter what, however, he is glad to see the weight loss, so that we can have more years together. In January 2014, we will celebrate our 9th anniversary, and I told him that I want to make to at least 30 years!! Hopefully more, because I want to live to be 100! Since we were 46 when we married, then I have to be healthy to get there, so onward and upward---or maybe I should say DOWNward--we go!!!

My Goals:
My main goal is to be healthy enough to see ALL my kids and grandkids grow up

My Program:
Continue pursuing a healthy lifestyle, including what I eat and the fitness routines that will help me get there.

If I lose weight, I will be very glad. If not, I will be fat and healthy!

I've done my first Triathlon, and I will be continuing to participate in events.

Personal Information:

Isaiah 40:31
Teach me, O Lord, to WAIT.


Laugh when you can..✿. Apologize when you should..✿. And let go of what you can't change... Love deeply and forgive quickly... Take chances and give your everything..✿. Life is too short to be anything but happy...✿ You have to take the good with the bad...✿ Love what you have... Always remember what you had... Forgive and forget.✿..and always remember.. that life goes on..✿ Life is too short✿

Other Information:
I am the proud wife of a retired U.S. soldier who is also a pastor, I am a mom, grandma, and a college student. I received my AA in secondary ed/emphasis music in June 2009, so now I'm an online student with Grand Canyon University, currently working toward a degree to teach English....I hope I can do some on campus classes to get a dual degree in Music. One step at a time...
