I am a 58 year old woman who wants to finally get herself together physically. I have been overweight all my life, now it is time to get on track.
After raising five children and becoming grandmother to eleven, I found myself alone. I did not know how to handle it, so I sat on the couch and it seems I didn't move for years.
Today, after reading about Spark People, I made a decision to get moving. Like the saying goes, "today is the first day of the rest of my life." I am so excited.

Member Since: 3/29/2008

Fitness Minutes: 680

My Goals:
Physically I would like to lose 40+ pounds in a healthy manner, I also want to stop smoking. I can no longer make excuses for the way I eat and the cigarettes I smoke. I want to become a healthy individual.

My Program:
I plan on a walking program. This week to start off I will walk a mile each day, week two will see two miles, and likewise week three will find me walking three miles each day. When I am comfortable with that, I will incorporate some strength exercises.

Personal Information:
I am a single woman who just now can appreciate her independence. While I am sorry things did not work in my marriage of many years, we both made mistakes and it is time to move forward. I have no desire to date again but do enjoy the company of friends. For the first time in my life, I can do what I wish when I wish. How cool is that?

Other Information:
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."John Lennon.
I don't want life to pass me by anymore. If you want to find me, I'll be enjoying life, not watching it pass by.

    Hello and welcome to,

    I'm pretty new at this myself, but wanted to let you know that it's o.k. to just jump right in and play. It's how I have been learning my way around. So far I have encountered only splendid, encouraging and helpful people. Stop by and say hello, I need friends too. Incorporate "Isometrics" into your daily life, it works great!

    It's Spark Time!
