About Me:

Hi I'm Roberta

A three minute video summarizing my fat loss journey:

Venus customers can now request me as an online coach:

I'm at or around the 1000 friends limit of MFP and the FR waiting list is several pages long.

As people trickle out I will add the next on the list, but the FR list is growing faster than people trickling out.

My diary is completely open so you can see it even if you are not on my FR.

My MFP updates go to twitter and Facebook.

My facebook profile:

I am a retired software engineer. I worked for HP for 25 years, then went through the Police Academy and currently work as a reserve deputy (volunteer), and I started working for Venus Factor as an editor in Feb 2013. I am currently an Author and Coach for The Venus Factor.

I am happily married and I'm here to help motivate others in their fitness goals as well as to keep track of my calories. I am very dedicated to health and fitness.

Why I want to get in shape

I lost my weight (85 lbs) by just eating less (and exercise of course!) but I'm finding I need myfitnesspal to help me maintain. I am not a fitness model or competitor. I just love working out.

I am passionate about helping others, especially women of all ages, achieve their fitness goals

My Inspirations

  • Being strong, fit, and functional.
  • Living a long healthy life
  • I am passionate about helping others especially women.

    Wed 11/28/12 04:24PM It's so much easier for the big guys and the taller girls to eat the full fat versions of everything. I've learned to sub in fat free ...
