About Me:

My greatest love in life outside of my husband, children and family is the music ministry in the Catholic Church. I served as a guitarist song leader at two Catholic churches over a 23 year period. I have served as a cantor/song leader in my present church for the last 13 years. My third love is open mic singing. With my guitar in hand, I travel around to three open mics and sing folk, easy listening and rock music. It'sgreat fun!

The goals I'm working toward:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy eating lifestyle.
  • Staying fit.
  • Losing another 6 pounds.

I haven't felt comfortable with my weight since:

I hadn't felt comfortable since 2000 when my oldest daughter got married. I weighed 115 then. Since 12/13/2012, I've lost 31 1/2 pounds and now weigh 14.2. So I'm feeling great about my weight now.

My favorite healthy food:

Pan grilled tilapia with basil and little lemon juice.

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I want to see my grandchildren grow to adulthood, go to college and live happy, successful lives.

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Stopped drinking diet drinks and using artificial sweeteners

My favorite activity at the gym is:

I don't go to the gym. I like to do interval training on the treadmill and weight training with small hand weights. In addition, I do floor exercises such as toe touches, crunches and reverse crunches.

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • My children
  • Getting to my my goal weight.
