Hi everyone, I'm GP aka Mind Over Fatter.  I am an "over 50" woman re-inventing myself.  In the last 10 years (the soon to be forgotten 40's) I had a baby, lost my parents, kicked my husband out, and was re-organized out of my job after 30 years.  I was very sad, nervous, sometimes mad, felt alone and overall I was really unhappy.  I'm now looking forward to the fabulous 50's.  I wasn't a year ago but a new journey has started.  I feel I've worked through a lot of emotional issues and now I have to focus my mind on what matters - my fat!

My interests are family, relaxing outside, running, golfing, shopping, blogging, crafting (and worrying about my weight).

I'd love your comments and please feel free to email me at
