Wife to a sweetheart of a husband, Mom of 5, & Ma'ams of 3 precious grandbabies! Former Army Gal & High School teacher, my degree is in Family & Consumer Science, I am now retired but I love spending time volunteering at my 14 year old son's and 5 year old grandson's schools. My hobbies include reading, cooking, gardening (flowers & vegetables), sewing, water aerobics and playing with my grandkids.
As you can see I have an amazing life, so many people I love and things I enjoy doing. However, my weight really holds me back from enjoying that life. I have joint pain, as a result of my weight and it makes doing so many things. I have tried a variety of diets and exercise is a challenge as well. I am nervous about weight loss surgery but I know others who have seen great success and I feel like it is a positive step in the right direction. I look forward to hearing other's success stories as they do what they can to improve their own lives and their own health as well.
