I'm back after a long hiatus! I have missed the support of friends here as well as the trackers and motivation.

I have gained the "menopause 10" and want to get the extra unwanted weight off this year. If it takes me all year to lose 10 lbs, so be it. I just want to find lasting solutions, no quick fixes.

I'm all about lifestyle changes. Eating well for the long haul, NO dieting! Fitness I can live with, no 2 hour daily workouts!

So I'm foods, new workout options, renewed motivation!

Personal Information:
I'm happily married with grown children, grandchildren, an awesome husband and great dog too!

I am a Medical Assistant and Phlebotomist and am also an Herbalist. I work in Healthcare.

I love to sing, garden, exercise, crochet, cook/bake, read and make herbal medicines and beauty products. My future goals are to keep chickens, extend my gardening season with cold frames and to learn to can and preserve the food I grow.

My husband and I like to camp, hike, fish and take long walks with our dog Fraulein. We love to grow our own vegetables and herbs. We hope to travel more in the future.

Other Information:
I am looking for a female fitness buddy in my area. I live in South King County, on the west hill of Kent, WA. Anyone out there looking for someone to mall walk with a couple days per week while the weather is so cold?

    Noted your comment on the Fitness through the Ages article. Sorry for your frustrations!! emoticon I can relate from the position of "nothing seems to work"! -- And I know you've done / tried more than I have!

    I will be meeting w/ a Naturopath in a couple of weeks that comes recommended to me via a 72 yr old quilting friend. - I will let you know if anything helpful surfaces!

    Hey Kelly - I have missed you too. I am back up in weight, but if I just reign in the food intake I will be good. Life has been overall good - our daughter is back living with us as she is in her last month of training as a police officer again. Right now I dealing with health issues with my mother - so that is taking a lot right now. But all in all life is good - I hope the same is true with you.

    So you changed jobs - what are you doing now?
