New to board
Mon, 01-30-2006 - 3:53pm
Hi everyone! I am new to this board although I have been lurking for a while. What a great bunch. My name is Deb and I live 40 miles south of St Louis but I am from Northern Illinois. I have 3 grown daughters and until just recently had been raising my 9 year old grandson. So, right now gals, I am going through empty nest syndrome! I work full time as a Hospice director and try to keep very busy. I love to walk, do Pilates and I try to be pretty faithful so I can stay fit like the rest of this group!!! I have always been very active and believe me, that came in handy raising a grandson with ADD. I'm really glad to be part of this group. Deb

Well hello Deb and welcome to our group. Sounds like you have a good fit going with being healthy and fit. We look forward to hearing more from you. We actually have 3 Debs now, including myself. We have a big variety of health and fitness levels going on. We have a variety of ages with our families, some still raising little ones to some who are home alone again. Please post and just jump right on in!

Hi Deb. Welcome. Great bunch of women here, as you already discovered.

I'm really looking forward to getting to know you. Nutrition is a topic to ask you about, I see from your post. Hmmmm. I will file that away!
