My name is Teri and I am a 49 year old wife to my best friend for almost 19 years. Together we have 5 grown kids ( I have 2 girls, ages 29 & 26. Kevin has 2 girls, ages 29, 27 and a boy 21). We have 5 grandkids and will be blessed with number 6 in December. I live in Iowa and have been in the insurance industry for the past 8 years ~ the last 4 in commercial lines.
I will turn 50 this year and I have make a "bucket list" of the things that I wanted to accomplish before my 50th birthday. Getting back in shape is #1 on my list. It is almost 6 months into 2012 and I have struggled with this all along!! For the first 6 1/2 weeks of this year, I was fairly successful in attending a local work out facility 5 sometime 6 days a week. I couldn't finish the 8 week session due to a leg injury. After that, I joined Planet Fitness and went about 3 times a week with 2 of my co-workers. That has since fizzled out since our work loads got heavier and we just stopped going.
I need guidance. I need support. I need focus. I need YOUR help!!
I'd really like to be a part of a support group that is going through the same ups and downs that I am.
I've come to the conclusion that I am a Chocholic! I crave chocolate every single day. I used to have will power. I used to be in shape, my clothes used to fit and I was proud of the person in the mirror.
I have agreed to participate in the 2012 Summer Challenge and I have marked Monday, June 4th, as my official start date.
I am looking forward to being part of this group.
Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day!
