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!

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.

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.
