Hi I am soon to be 50 on May 4th and happy to have found my way here. I have 3 children and two grandsons who I love to spoil rotten when they come visit! I have 2 black cats (Kitty and Birdie) and I am an LPN. I have been trying to motivate myself to go back to school for my RN. I lost 50 pounds in 2007 but have gained back 30 and want to get back down to 150 or even 135 would be ideal. I am 5 foot 3 inches tall so it shows up quick when I gain. If only I could stretch myself out a little! My hobbies include reading, listening to music (love music!) and recently took an interest in restoring furniture and gardening. This is my first post here and I look forward to getting to know everyone and learn some healthy tips to lose weight and get fit in my fifties!
