About Me:

PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE AND INCLUDE A MESSAGE WITH ANY FRIEND REQUESTS. NO MEN NEED APPLY. MY APOLOGIES, BUT I'VE BEEN BURNED ONE TOO MANY TIMES. I'm a 70-year-old wife, mom/stepmom of 6 adult offspring, Nana/grandma of 8, part-time Publix cashier (to support my thrifting habit), thrift store volunteer. We transplanted to Florida in 2015. I'm a friend of Bill W's (look it up) with 36 years sobriety. I began my most recent weight loss journey in July of 2020 with Keto and began using MFP in February of 2021.

Why I want to get in shape

I've lost nearly 80 pounds since July of 2020 (over 100 pounds lost since my heaviest in December of 2000 when I weighed 245) and I feel at least 20 years younger. Since being on this weight loss journey, I've eliminated several meds and love avoiding the side effects of dizziness, hand tremors, sleepiness, and weakness.

My Inspirations

  • Living a healthier life
  • All new wardrobe - good thing I shop at thrift stores
  • My 1989 wedding dress fits like it should have on our wedding day.
