My Goals:

Rewarding myself:
-10 pounds:

-50 pounds:

My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- Increase my vegetable and fruit consumption.
- Exercise every day, even if this is only 10 minutes a day. I need to keep moving because of arthritis that is getting worse when I am inactive.

Personal Information:
I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!

Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

Thanks for the Pioneer Day greeting with the skillet goodie. Love you and we are pioneers in our day too if you didn't know it. We are on a long trek towards overcoming the flesh. Glad you are with me on the journey.
Love, Sis
