I am a 45 year old female with lots of knowledge about dieting and healthy living, but I need to get serious and put my knowledge to work! I have recently lost 25 pounds, but have been trying to maintain the last several months! I have a big chunk of weight to lose and I am ready to keep following the Weight Watchers points program, but am ready to get my motivation elsewhere, hopefully through this community!!

I am married (for 10 years now), and we love and spoil our 3 dogs and 1 cat. I love to decorate our home, and I am also a master gardener. The season is short since I live in Iowa, but summers are beautiful and I take full advantage of the growing season!

I am a social worker and I run a corporate guardianship agency for people with disabilities. I love my work!

I am looking forward to connecting with other great people with the common goal of living life to the fullest.

Blessings! Lori : )

My Goals:
1. I am going to Oregon in December to help my sister celebrate her 50th birthday. I want to be down 15 pounds by Dec 19th.

My Program:
1. Counting points using the Weight Watchers program, but I have decided to quit attending the meetings.

2. I am working at getting 7.5-8 hours of sleep per night. A real challenge since I love Dave Letterman!

3. I quit drinking soda and am now drinking 8 glasses of water per day, plus I am drinking iced tea for a little caffeine and flavor.

4. I have not yet made a commitment to exercise, but I am in the planning mode.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I love movies and cultural events. I also love shopping for a bargain as I often like the deal as much as I like the product! I love Grey's Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters, and House Hunters.

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Thanks for your responce to my blog entry.
    Good for you for joining in the local fitness program. I haven't heard about the program through Hy-Vee either. What is that all about?
    Good luck to you. Our weather should be improving in the next few months.
