I'd like to drop a couple of dress sizes before my younger son's wedding in August. I'd also like to have more energy and a flatter abdomen.
My plan is to exercise in some way every day and watch my eating, especially in the evening, and find healthier foods.
I live in west Akron, Ohio. I taught English and German in a high school near here, but quit before I had my 2 sons, who will be 30 and 36 this summer. I spent quite a bit of time volunteering at their schools. Now my volunteer hours are given to the church. Several years ago I hopped into the job market for a couple years and worked in the office at Dillard's. It was fun while it lasted.

I think this is a great attitude for all of us. Even when we don't want to do something, we can talk ourselves into walking a little father, doing a few more crunches, taking one less bite, it is all up to us.
