Member Since: 1/25/2008

Fitness Minutes: 6,261

My Goals:
To feel better and feel better about myself.

I want to be able to buy clothes at Walmart and Goodwill.

My Program:
I'm on the Hobbit Diet- you know the one where you eat about 6 meals a day.

Personal Information:
I live in York County, SC where my family has been for hundreds of years. I have three wonderful adult children (ages 22, 23, 25) and a husband who all do not realize they are adults yet.

Other Information:
I love to quilt (mostly art quilts now), read good Christian Fiction, cook (obviously), and look up my family tree (you might be surprised at what you'd find in yours). I also like to go to car shows in the summer. We have a '74 Plymouth Duster that has won quite a few trophy's and I just bought a '68 Plymouth Barracuda!

    Hello, SparkFriend,
    Gryffindor emoticon Hufflepuff emoticon Ravenclaw emoticon Slytherin emoticon
    I realize you have teams that work and teams that don't. Sometimes trying out a new team finds a fit.

    Today, I am going through my SparkFriend's list, on my SparkPage and sending out an invitation. Please come check out our HOGWARTS Winter*Term Owl*Mail team (located as my 1st team under my teams). It is set up for a waiting list to the upcoming winter*term. We have a 12 wk challenge (multiple choices) designed for your own personal 'fit' and, Challengers of HOGWARTS winter*term 2, is coming up, on December 1st. It is a private team, so you need to join the owl*mail team if you want to be Sorted.

    I created a blog about it, today, so please stop in and read it. If you're looking for a really refreshing new way to focus on your goals and form new friendships plus join in the celebrations of the seasons in a *fun* virtual online wizarding world ... please come.

    Join me for a whole new adventure.
