Hi everyone, I'm from Toledo, Ohio and I hope to make contact with others from Toledo. I graduated from Bowsher High School in 1965 and I live by the Toledo, Zoo. We have lived here for 33 years but will soon be moving to Waterville, Ohio to a ranch style home because of all the stairs. I will soon be 62 years old (when did that happen?) OMG, thats scary when I say it out loud! I have bursitis and arthritis, old people stuff, and find it difficult to do much walking any more, which doesn't help with a diet and exercise program. I can still bike, and I do that when weather is permitting, I am still bowling and can do a little on my eliptical machine.

I want to start back doing what I can with free weight and the exercise ball. I do need some motivation! I am getting more and more depressed about the whole thing. I hope to find some encouragment and friends on here to help me through this. I know if I can get some weight off my knees I will find it easier to walk. Thanks so much for any help and encouragement anyone on here can give me.

Fitness Minutes: 120

My Goals:
I'm am just trying to feel good again and get some weight off my poor knees. It used to be about how I looked, it now is about how I feel, and I feel terrible.

My Program:
I am going to religeously enter in the the journal absolutely everything I eat. I am going to try to walk the treadmill at 10 minute increments 3 times a day. Hopefully my knees will cooperate!

Personal Information:
I am from Toledo, Ohio . I have three grown sons, Steve 41, Jeff 39, who lives in Denver and Joshua 27.
I have two grandchildren, Madelyn 7 and Jacob 5. They are the sweetest ever! I have been married for 43 years atoa my high school sweetheart. We actually got divorced for 2 years and remarried. The grass ISN'T greener on the other side. We were married on the same day and my youngest was born on our anniversary. My husband and I met in high school. My email address is

Other Information:
I am currently reading The Shack. I like to read by get distracted very easily. We love to ride our bikes and do every chance we get. My knees don't seem to mind that too much. I love to bowl and go camping. I LOVE to have lunch dates with my friends, I guess I better curb that for a little while or learn to make better choices. It is sooooo hard to look at all the good stuff on the menu and then order something good for me. Sigh!
