Constant renewal...

Dec 29th was my 61st birthday~ HURRAY! LOL Before SP, I went from size 22 to size 14-16 on my own. Then crazy things happened... SP has been a godsend for more than 8 yrs now... January 2010 I was on steroids for a bit and lost more weight (?!) but when I went OFF them--40 more pounds! And the inches came back with them! Yikes! LOL

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010 and in August 2015 I will have been in ...

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010 and in August 2015 I will have been in remission for FIVE years-- YAY!

But my weight?? There have been side effects... LOL

Now, I'm trying to regain strength, flexibility, energy, and overall health--instead of pounds! LOL My current challenges are a host of health issues: diabetes, neuropathy, chronic kidney disease, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, something NOT lupus, now labeled "undifferentiated connective tissue disease"... The aftermath of five other unrelated surgeries, two major vitamin deficiencies, and a new version of arthritis in 2011 and 2012... plus a lung disease NOT asthma that does the same thing asthma does... hopefully NOT previews of coming attractions! LOL

I love SP, the people, the teams, the tools-- It's SO nice to have such positive influences... Life is all about change, and I plan on making great ones with the help of SP and all my friends!... the more the merrier!
Every morning I wake up... is a GOOD DAY! LOL

SparkPoints: 102,695

Fitness Minutes: 114,769

My Goals:
When I found out my Lean body mass is
137 pounds (?!) My goal was less than that--no wonder I was having problems with what I was eating!--I wasn't eating enough!
I had to reset my goals! LOL Makes it easier though--now I only have to lose about 65 pounds, 5 pounds at a time--instead of 100! LOL
I still want:
More stamina.
More energy.
More FUN!

My Program:
I reset my ticker every year on my birthday, to track yearly progress. my plan is to use the nutrition, fitness and other goals trackers every day, not only for better health but with unrelated goals. I will find creative ways to work around my disabilities. I will post online as often as possible, and TRY to stay informed. LOL

**** I PLAY! ****

Personal Information:
I am disabled, receiving government benefits... and finally DOING the things I love that I can still do, especially singing!
I've had a few of my poems published, but a hard drive crash ate my first attempt at a novel...
As much as I'm able I'm using my love of set design, building, etc, to create a bright, serene environment for myself and my three furbabies, Licorice, Isis and Amigo. I love the Renaissance, fantasy and sci-fi conventions; theatre and music events; reading, especially Tolkien--but several yrs ago I lost my vision for 6 wks and now have the beginning of cataracts... I can only do visually intense things in small doses... I'm SO grateful to be able to do that much! What a JOY it is to SEE! LOL
I've crewed and been IN independent films, and keep in touch with my friends in the business. And I'm studying the Korean language (aka Hangul)...keeping my, --as Poirot put it--"Leetle gray cells" alive and kicking! LOL

Other Information:
I live in Washington State, in the greater--and WETTER-- Seattle area... LOL
Our 15 yr old black lab mix died 06/2011, and my DXH left in 2012 after 22 yrs together... We're still friends. He's in TX, and we talk or text several times a week--more than when we were together! LOL
I have cats (2 males, 1 female--pics in my gallery) The older two were a gift from DXH, and pure joy. My other little one was feral in 2010; now he lives inside--but he's having adjustment issues, and spooks and runs from the least little thing. It doesnt't help that he was injured during the interim move... I can't wait until we're all in our new home so he can relax with the rest of us! :-)
Life is full of challenges, some of them fun, some not. I'm looking forward to seeing what's around the next corner!
