I am 50 years young and live in Madison Alabama.

I have been married for 30 years to my best friend and have two wonderful sons ages 29 and 25. I also have a wonderful DIL.

I have struggled for years to lose over 60 pounds and I am working on the last 29 pound. I have lost 25 pounds since January.

July 25th I had a Lumbar Fusion and on September 3rd I had a two level fusion in my neck. I am recovering well and attribute that to my fitness level and continued healthy lifestyle. That plus my attitude!

It will take a year to fully heal but I am allowed to walk and so I try to get 3 miles in each day. Each week I add 1000 steps. I can't wait to get back to strength training!

I also have an autoimmune disease called Sjogrens Syndrome and autoimmune hypothyroidism so I have a lot to deal with but know that others deal with far more.

No matter how high the mountain I will climb it and never give up.

Life is short so don't waste a minute!

It is all said in my introduction.

I will never quit!


My Program:
Give an overview of what you are doing to meet your goals
I get 10,000 steps in a day. I mix up my workouts between walking, strength, step and circuit training. I am a huge Leslie Sansone fan and I do her workouts at least twice a week in addition to walking outside daily.

I follow WW online and I just joined the S.B. forum. I am hoping to combine those two to get the scale moving again.



Personal Information:
I recently moved from Northern V.A. a year ago to the Huntsville Alabama area for my husbands job.


Other Information:
Anything else you would like to tell people. Could include things like your favorite books or movies, a quote, anything.
I love cooking, decorating and exercising. I have an active social life and a wonderful family who I love very much. My world revolves around them.

I have the most beautiful adopted Chihua/Pekingese named Sammy who is my constant companion.

    HI LIZ,

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND ADVICE YOU HAVE GIVEN ON THE 40 SOMETHING MESSAGE BOARD. ACTUALLY I AM AWARE OF HOSPICE, I USE TO WORK FOR THE HOSPICE HERE WHERE I LIVE. MY MIL IS NOT ACCEPTING THAT HE'S NOT GOING TO GET BETTER. SHE WILL NOT HAVE HOSPICE COME IN! IT BREAKS MY HEART BECAUSE I KNOW THAT HE WOULD GO MORE PEACEFULLY. HE IS ON A RESPIRATOR AND IT WOULD BE A GREAT BIG FIGHT TO GET HIM OFF. BUT SHE BELIEVES AS LONG AS THERE IS BREATH THERE IS HOPE. ALL WE CAN DO IS EITHER WAIT UNTIL SHE IS READY OR UNTIL HIS BODY GIVES OUT. I'M AFRAID IT'S GOING TO BE THE SECOND CHOICE.

    I HOPE TO GET TOKNOW YOU BETTER. WE ARE THE SAME AGE. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
