Howdy Everyone..Another year has gone by; I made it to 68 years old inspite of myself. Had many ups and downs this past year. I still have diabetes, with better control now. Arthritis and other problems with my muscles have left me with limited mobility. I use my walker and cane much more than before. Now that the Sunshine has returned I am determined to get out and walk every day; even if it is only 15-20 minutes. Perhaps that will help with my sleeping issues.
I still have lots of weight to lose. The scale never changes but clothes are fitting better. Medications also play a part in keeping the weight on. I know that my weight is a big part of my health issues. It is a vicious cycle.
I live alone, and feel sad most of the time. When I look in the mirror I do not even know the person I see there. I sure would like to see the happy smile that I once knew. I know that person is inside me, somewhere. Oh, how I long to find that her again. Today I begin a new lease on life...with new determination to eat healthy, get out of my house and feel the sun on my skin. But starting over is hard. Not sure where to start. I already eat healthy...just need new ideas and motivation. Getting the SPARK back seems to be a good place to begin...
I would like to start anew with my eating/diet plan...

Hi! Just saw your comment on the hummus regarding serving size. The whole recipe serves six, so when you make it divide it into six portions to give you your serving size. Hope that helps!!

Billie, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I am in Oregon and was born in Springfield so we communicated quite a bit a couple years back when I first joined spark. (Before I got pregnant with my third child and quit using spark!) She will be missed by us sisters on here and I look forward to getting to know her better in the new system of things.
