I have been fighting my weight since I was 5 years old. Now as I enter the second half of this life I want to finally win this battle, so I can enjoy myself more as my husband and I enter into retirement. We want to do more traveling and just enjoying life while we can.

When I started with Spark I just wanted to lose weight but now that I am halfway to my weight loss goal I am finding out I want more than that. I enjoy exercising, walking in particular and will be doing at least 1 5K this year and who knows where that will lead maybe even longer distances.

I have found that when I eat healthy food I feel better and have more energy.

Fitness Minutes: 140,353

My Goals:
I want to finally get this weight off yet again and keep it off for good. I'm tired of fighting it and doing the yoyo thing. I joined SP May 2009, but didn't really get started seriously until late September.

My Program:
I plan to go slow and steady like the tortoise. Eating less, excersing more, and drinking more water and tea.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live out in the country on 20 acres in NW Missouri close to Smithville Lake with our female lab/pointer mix pup(12 years old but I still call her a pup) named Sadie. We are winter snowbirds that spend 3 months at Powell Park Marina on Lake Sam Rayburn in East Texas fishing.

I still work part-time when we are home.

I like to knit, crochet, and do decorative painting.

Other Information:
We love to travel in our 5th wheel and have taken some wonderful trips and had some great adventures during our 28 years of marriage. And yes our dog goes everywhere with us.

    Yes, I know you told me to never leave again. But, hey, sorry, I'm that kind of girl. :o( I am still struggling with my weight and health but only 30 more pounds to goal. Back on the low carb wagon. I guess you can say I cherish you guys as real friends. The saying goes that real friends can be away for long periods of time and when they get back together it's like no time has passed. At least this is what I hope. I can not promise I will stay committed to typing but it is what I want.

    emoticon for the goodie, PJ. My brother is improving slowly, very encouraging. I hope your Dad is making progress and you are taking care of yourself too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my new renovated room! Norm loves yellow so that is to appease him. At first I was horrified at the color of the accent wall but I'm getting used to it now. Nala isn't comfortable with the floor yet - too slippery!

    Thanks for the Spark Goody. We have always been close with this couple and what I remember is how we used to tease him about his Cancer Sticks. He tried to quit smoking many times. It's sad to think that the damage to his lungs is truly the reason he passed at 69. Way too young. When we had our 50th Anniversary in Feb, his wife emailed me and said theirs would be this coming summer. Unfortunately, Glenn will not be here to celebrate theirs together.
