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.

    Hi Jo,
    I caught a post from you on another site and noticed not only that we share our love for the greatest team in baseball, but that you recently bought Dance Dance Revolution. I bought it a couple of weeks ago and while I think it's really fun, I found that I am TERRIBLE at it! Do you have any tips or suggestions? One thing that I definitely found is that until I get better at it, I'm not going to use the workout mode because it goes waaaaaaay to fast and I can't get any of the steps right. I also don't seem to be steppin at the right time with the arrow because it often says "almost." HELP!!!!!!
    Fondly,
    Patti
