Journey Home

I'm here to lose weight, and get back to my myself, the way I think of myself although I haven't been thin for a very long time.
I have 3 kids, all of whom have left home, and have been amazingly happily married for over 25 years.
I have never done much online before, and am looking forward to meeting people who share the same weight loss goals. None of the other members of my family are overweight, although my daughter diets with me.

My Goals:

Personal Information:
I have been happily married for over 30 years to the one guy in the world who is totally perfect for me.
Our lives totally changed in May 2011 when our eldest son was diagnosed and operated on for a massive brain tumor in his brain stem and reaching into the cerebellum. He is slowly recovering. Hubby is helping him inSudbury while I hold down the home fort in Ottawa.
My son spent months in ICU and then over a year in the hospital. Stress eating and sitting on my butt in the hospital has resulted in my gaining weight.
Now we are in a routine and I am determined to lose the weight and be a healthier, fitter lady for whatever the next thing life throws at me is!

Other Information:
I have a wonderful cat named Neiko and my hubby has a German Shepherd named Beowulf who is staying with me while hubby is in Sudbury.

Hi Shirley. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

The blue flowers are from my yard, the two tulip photos are from out local botanical garden and the one with the Japanese maple and azaleas was taken in a customers yard.

Glad you had such a nice Easter.

I know we worry about our children, but thank goodness we have a positive outlook and faith. emoticon

Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
