I've gained way too much weight since my children were born. 20 years of just not feeling healthy! I'm tired of it, and hope that I can connect with some friends here to help me take it off. I'm a mom of 2 girls, 26and 23 and have a wonderful hubby who isn't the most supportive of my trying to lose weight (Guess I should be happy that he loves me the way I am....) I also have 2 great dogs that keep me on my toes. I am looking to reevaluate my life style to make sure I am around for my grandchildren. I look forward to fitting into a size 10, and making new friends!

Member Since: 1/8/2008

Fitness Minutes: 12,635

My Goals:
To be healthy! I guess my goal is to take it one day at a time. To log on daily to keep track of my progress, and to succeed for the first time in a long time.

My Program:
I need to exercise more. Living in snowy MA makes it difficult at times to get outside to walk the dogs, but I hope to do something daily to burn those calories!

Personal Information:
I'm a born and bred New Englander. I live in Western MA. I would love to connect with others that have similar likes and live in the area. I have a freshman in high school, and a sixth grader. I'm VERY lucky in that they are great kids. I met my hubby in the Bahamas 25 years ago, and the girl in that bikini just doesn't exist anymore.

Other Information:
Scrapping is my passion. I'm also big into rubber stamping. I've been a
Stampin' Up demonstrator for over 10 years and love the creative outlet that scrapping offers. I taught 2nd grade for 12 years, and am now a substitute teacher at our middle school. I tell everyone I'm on my 14th year of maternity leave! I love the freedom that subbing offers and have no plans to go back to teaching full time. I love being able to participate in all my kids activities in school without having to worry.

    Hey Jo!!! I love your page. I'm a Red Sox fan too. Go Sox!!!! I love the pic with your dog in Ortiz's jersey. Too cute emoticon and Levi's face is precious. How is he doing since you rescued him? Well going to add you to my friends. If you ever need help, support, or motivation, I'm just a message away. Take care and enjoy your day. It's getting cold here in FL. Weird for this time of year but oh well. Going to enjoy it because I'm from the north originally(Joysey).... emoticon
