My greatest joy is that I am now a grandma to a beautiful little girl named Eliana. She is just seven months old. She gives me motivation to work at getting back to health and losing some weight in the process. My son married his girlfriend on September 15, 2015. They have given me Eliana and my daughter in law's sons are my grandchildren, too.

I struggle with weight loss but will never stop trying. I live in Colorado. I love the mountains though I am afraid of heights! My hobby and passion is Tole painting. I paint for pleasure and sometimes a little cash for my work.

Here is to 2016 being a healthy year for me!

    Hi Pat! I've been getting in between 8000 to 10,000 a day! This week at TOPS I lost 2 lbs. My problem is my right leg is killing me. I need to go to the doctor. Hope your feeling better each day! :)

    Hey Pat, I popped over to SP to see what was happening. I will be honest, I don't get on here much since getting a FB page. That being said, FB isn't very inspirational and I am thinking about cutting back on it. I get a whole lot more inspiration from my spark buddies.

    I joined WW online with Kelley a couple of months ago. I am down 10 pounds so far. Always a struggle, but a struggle worth fighting.

    Yeah, being a grandma isn't so bad huh?

    Hi Pat! My daughter, Kristin is feeling okay. The baby is trying to come early. She will be in the hospital until he's born. He will be here probably in the next few days. She is not allowed to even walk in her room.
