My name is Geri Gengenbach. I am 47 years old, 125 pounds overweight and tired of it. I have been overweight my whole life and have lost weight many times but never kept it off. I recently went through a very hard year with depression and gained 40 lbs back. I will turn 48 in November and am panicking about my health.(50 is right around the corner)! I'm afraid diabetes is around the corner and with my smoking, heart disease also. Being on meds for depression doesn't help with the weight but I can't make excuses anymore! So here I am. Praying this will get me back on track to getting healthy.

Member Since: 9/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 2,367

My Goals:
I just really want to feel better mentally and physically again. I want energy to get things done around the house and to be able to travel without being embarrassed. I want to ride a bike again and run someday and have more self confidence. I would love to weigh 145 pounds again!

My Program:
Logging everything I eat daily. I try to have foods as close to their natural state. Walking 40-60 minutes everyday and just joined the gym to start strength training. Try to read articles and learn as much as I can.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Nebraska and have lived in Omaha for 27 years. I have a wonderful husband(Mark)and we have been married 29 years. We have 4 children Addie,Hanna,Nathan and Sam. Life is always interesting around here. I have been a stay at home mom since the kids were born and before that I was a hairstylist for 6 years. I love arts and crafts but haven't done anything for quite awhile. After a long year of depression I am starting over and pray to God joy will continue on.
