After spending the last several years battling a heart attack, a total hip replacement, uterine cancer, losing my job and having to find a new one, major depression and binge eating. In August of 2020, I was in the hospital for Covid 19 for 22 days, 5 of those on a ventilator. I think life is finally beginning to turn around. I think the main thing I have learned through this is summed up in the Galaxy Quest tag line, "Never give up. Never give in." God has been with me through all these ordeals and I have managed to come out a little better than I when I started through each one. I jokingly tell my friends that maybe I'll get it together by the time I'm 65 (I ‘m 62 now). However I'm definitely trying to get my weight and health back into line before then. My goal is to be a healthy weight and physically fit by October 2021 and then to keep it that way!

Personal Information:
I'm an empty nester. My son graduated from law school 2013 and married in May 2014 to a wonderful girl. I work as a RN in ICU and in my free time I love to play computer games, read, watch movies, and knit.

I love watching movies and procedural crime shows like NCIS and Sherlock. I also like to read, knit, and crochet. I'm going to try and learn to speak Polish as my new daughter's family is originally from Poland and also get certified in critical care.
