In Introduce Yourself
I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am to have found this place! So.....my name is Temple, yes, that's my real name. There are quite a few of us where I am from so it must have been a thing back then. I'm 58 and I haven't trained seriously since I was 44? In between age 44 bounce a quarter off of any body part and my 58 Oh Lord does this need help, I've been as high as almost 300# from prednisone and other fun meds, down to size 14, back up to 267 from antidepressants and I just dropped to 199#. My first goal is to hit 150 with a decent amount of lean mass. That's about all there is to tell about the body I run around in. I'm a mom, my son is gasp 38, and my daughter is 27. Both are married and I couldn't have picked better for them. I am also a grandma. Kayleigh is 7 and Kaysen is due April 14. I'm also a new great auntie to Finley Fern who decided she had to break out at 27 weeks but she is rocking the NICU, off all extra oxygen and starting to gain weight at 2#8oz. God is so good! My day job is artist/marketing for a winery & brewery and I do portrait work and teach some classes on the side. My favorite classes are the ones that I do for the littles (age 4+ canvas, paint, mod podge, glitter, tissue paper). Originally I grew up on a farm/ranch in northwest Nebraska and now I live in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. That's about it, not much to tell. I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone. A discussion board was my fitness lifeline almost 20 years ago and I didn't think there were any anymore. Ecstatic I found this!
