I'm currently participating in the BLC as a LOVELY LIME! I've been working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

I've lost weight with TOPS, SparkPeople, my SparkFriends, and the LIMES but I'm not yet where I need to be. I love the support that I get from all my Sparkfriends and teams, but I have to say that to have a 28 member team that is consistently supportive of each member and have the participation, caring and sharing that we have on the LIMES is a rare and beautiful thing.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople 30-day challenges too; I'm now repeating some of my special favorites.

Basically I'm just not quitting! I'm still trying to live mindfully and to be as healthy as possible.

Fitness Minutes: 79,415

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life. I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy". I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.


My Program:
Eat Wisely! Live fully in each day! Show Love and Kindness! Trust! Pray!



Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force. I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!. I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.


Other Information:
My Mantra - Believe in Miracles. Forgive everyone. Life is not fair, but it is good. My Other Mantra: What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you! And we all should read this: "If every morning, You can find a reason to say, Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day. And every day, you find a reason to say, Yes, it is a beautiful day. And every night, you find a reason to say, Yes, it was a beautiful day. Then one day, You'll look back and easily say, Yes...it was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    Putting your life on hold, waiting for something to happen in a situation
    that is going no where is like waiting for water to boil
    when you never turned on the heat to begin with.

    thank you for your post on my blog. My husband sees a heart dr on the 30th and I think that is where we will probably end up

    Glad you are walking also, lately it seems to be the only thing I am doing right. I am trying to be determined to get at least 10,000 steps a day, but really trying for 5 miles (which is closer to 12,000 steps).
    It is so hard for me to allow myself to take the time for myself to do these things, so if I don't take time in the morning or afternoon, then I do it in the evening when all other responsibilities are done.
    Are you measuring your walking? emoticon

    There is no growth without change.
    You’ve got to let go of some old stuff.
    And that can hurt. Often when I’m in the most pain,
    I realize it’s coming from my trying to control everything.
    Or resisting the changes that come with the progress.
    But you see that light… that beautiful next level…
    and that’s what you have to focus on..
