Its Never Too Late, they say.

I am 66 years old, as you can see from my login.
I retired 6 years ago and went down hill from there, got depressed, gained weight and didnít exercise. A small stroke last year and Atrial Fibrillations this year landed me in the hospital and didnít help my state of mind.

I joined Spark People on 22 July 2008.

This has been an extremely enjoyable journey. There is so much to learn about how to get healthy and stay that way. I have been watching what I eat, eating lots of fruit and vegetables, drinking water maybe not 8 a day but close. I have watched the nutrition values that I should have and was so low in some. I have been eating a lot more foods with Potassium and fewer foods with a lot of sodium. I feel so much better. In fact I feel great. The exercise is picking up and am sure I will have many streak of my fitness goals in the near future.

Hi! Haven't written for awhile because of the holidays and also have been ill with a virus for about 2 weeks. Trying to get back into the swing of things now and get moving again. We did see our N. Coast kids in Tucson in November and spent two weeks working on the Nevada house. Came home the day before turkey day and threw together some food to take to our local kids' house. The last month has been a blur -- glad that it is finally January. Our son with the cancer is taking an experimental injectable medication that is used for other types of cancer -- if nothing else, he feels that he may help someone by testing the drug. We saw him the week of Christmas -- he looks very pale and is losing weight. He is having more tests today. We have turned to the Lord more for solace and courage -- we know that only a miracle can save Scott. Hope your family is doing well. I am going to try a new doctor in town and maybe get my health on a better level.
Let me know how you are and what you've been doing. --Lennie

Hi! So glad to be on your "friend list" -- where do you live in NM? We go through there at least twice a year because we own a house in Boulder City, Nevada. It is vacant right now because my husband's father died last year and we are trying to do something with 50 years of stuff that his parents left. My husband grew up in Calif., Yuma, and B.C. Although we have lived in S.C. for 22 years now, we have been going to the desert for over 42 years -- I love the peace and beauty of the mountains and the terrain! I grew up in Oregon and N. California. My husband and I met in college when he was studying to be a forester and I was doing a registered nurse degree. We have 3 sons, one of whom lives in Florida and is starting cancer treatment for a deadly cancer. We have 5 grandchildren -- 2 in Calif., 2 in Florida, and one near where we live. Share some of your "inspirational" readings -- I would welcome some spiritual help right now. Blessings, Lennie
