Wellness Challenge

About Me

Hi. My name is Kim. I started these wellness challenges because I am obese and wanted to take control of my weight. I have participated in challenges where you have to pay to join but wanted to do something that was at no cost so that wouldn't be a prohibitive factor. These challenges started with mostly my family members but have quickly grown over the past few years.


I live in Maryland with my husband, grown son, and 2 dogs. One is a big black Lab named Thor and the other is an English Pointer named Zelda. I have lived here for 4 years but have also lived in Texas, Kansas, Idaho, Iowa, and New York.


I have been married for 35 years and we have 4 children and 11 grandchildren. I am a member of the LDS church. If you would like to know more about my faith visit mormon.org.

Hi. I'm Mary Pat and I joined one of the wellness challenge when I lived in Maryland.  I joined to get into better shape.  When Kim got a new calling in our church I told  her I would help  her with these challenges so that they could continue.  Shortly thereafter I moved with my son and his wife to Pittsburgh PA.  We have 2 dogs  -- a white german shepherd who is search and rescue qualified and a black pomeranian who believes she is a large dog.  We also have 3 cats a bird and tank full of fish. 

I am thankful for this opportunity to continue to get healthier and to work with Kim.  Hopefully this program will work for you as it is working for my family.  Please don't hesitate to contact me --gawdus@gmail.com -- if you have any questions, comments or bonus challenge suggestions. 

Here's to getting healthier.
