Hi, my name's Connie, I'm Heidi's mother. I've heard so much about this site and all the encouragement and support you offer each other. I don't have a lot of weight to lose but I'm interested in eating better and getting more exercise.

I may not be able to post every day but I plan to check in often. :)

:welcome: I love to quilt too. I'm sure you'll be as much of an asset to this site as your DD is.

By the way, I'm glad to see your avatar isn't of a wee child with a bag over his head. :lol:

Wow Ruth, I'm so happy to get such a quick response! Happy quilting. :)

And we are the two resident grand old hens, I see. I'm 71 so you beat me.

Ruth - That really cracked me up!

Welcome Connie! We love your daughter on here and now have a bonus of two generations:) My mom is in her 70s and has been a diet and exercise inspiration for me. She and I even work out together once a week.

Glad you posted Mom! :hug:

Karen, I sure wish my mom and I lived close enough to work out together once a week. :)

You should have seen the two of us using the wii fit plus this afternoon. :D We had a ball!

Hi Connie:sunny: and :welcome2:

I was so suprised to see that you're Heidi's Mom. Even though you might not get to post every day, it will be very nice to have you checking in from time to time.

Eating better and getting more exercise is what we're all about here with the added bonus of friendship and fun.
Now you and Ruth stay out of trouble! Ok?

Hugs :hug: to your DD and to Dad, too!

Welcome Connie! My Mom has made a lot of lifestyle changes too. She is now obsessed with the pedometer I bought her ;) It's great to see the people we love making positive changes with us.
