Hi. My name is Barb and I'm on the journey of a lifetime. I want and need to get healthier. In order to do that I have a lot of weight to lose, which means I need to eat healthier and get a move on it! I need to focus on fitness. I have the power to change my life around, and I intend to do just that.

I am still employed full time. I have 2 children (son/daughter) and 3 grandchildren (2 grandsons/granddaughter). My daughter and her children (1 GS/GD) live with me. I am divorced.

I have many interests - besides my family and my church - which include reading and art. I love to draw, paint, colored pencils, water color pencils, water colors - you name it. I'm not professing to be a great artist. I'm merely telling you about a passion I have and a fun, expensive!, hobby that I have.

I need help on this journey. Thanks for your help and encouragement.

For years, I used to work at Hecht's in the customer service department and had a lot of time to read in between. No lie, I probably read a couple of hundred books over those years. But now, I am so busy, I never have time to read. I gave all my books away practically.

Do you like Patterson? What kind of mystery if you don't mind me asking?

take care

So I just read you are an avid reader...what books do you enjoy? I used to read all the time myself but now there has been no time I'm afraid. It is such a peaceful experience.

best

Thank you for your comforting words. They do help. Yesterday was a bad day. I am better today. Ray was a good man and I miss him. But I know he would want me to get on with my life. He would want me to get healthy and enjoy all that life has to offer.
