I'VE GOT TO LOSE WEIGHT. IT'S CRITICAL NOW! I've struggled with Asthma for 25 years+ and now I've been put on Oxygen 24/7 permanently. What a bummer. I have also gone from using a C-pap machine at night for breathing to a Bi-Pap machine which helps with breathing both inhaling and exhaling. When they did the latest sleep study they found I stop breathing 28 times in about 4+- hours which is very bad on your heart, lungs & brain. I'm making the best of it (what else can I do) LOL, ...

I'm making the best of it (what else can I do) LOL, but wearing a full face mask at night when I sleep is not exactly how I thought I would live in my retirement. Anyway... I need to get back with SPARK PEOPLE real bad and stick with it. Prob is that filling out your food and such is so very SLOW...

Let me say right here after everything I've been through, I do feel blessed and lucky to be alive.

This is the five (5) year anniversary of the death of our youngest grandson at age 18. He committed suicide IN Oct, 2009 leaving no note, and believe me it has been devastating on the whole family.

Sometimes I feel so guilty just wondering about the would have's, could have's, & should have's with Kyle's death. I know that I did not do anything wrong, but the not knowing WHY and what could have been different is just killing me.

I need to treat myself like I do everyone else because I am just as good, if not better, and need to treat myself accordingly.

My dear DarlingKat has been home for a 3-1/2 years and is doing much better. She graduated from 15 months of cosmetology school on 8/27/10 and PASSED her license board test for Managing Cosmetologist on 10/7/10. I am so proud of her and her accomplishments. This has been a hard road for both of us.

I am going to get on the train again and we shall see. ALL ABOARD...

My Goals:
My husband got post-op Diabetes after open heart surgery in Feb 2010, and now finally realizes that weight does not come off easily, no matter what kind of diet you are on. I want to loose weight regardless of how small or slow the progress is, and will not be deterred or feel guilty when I take a step backwards.


My Program:
I look for simple, easy and quick recipes because it is so hard for me to stand up any length of time. I also hate cleaning up afterwards. Getting lazy! I also need to plan out my grocery list every week, and need to stay up with SPARK PEOPLE, make sure I eat BEFORE going to the store & only buy what I need.

My other objective is to get my hubby of 38 years on-board with me.

He doesn't like diets, and makes no bones about it, but I am not going to let this stop me....

Personal Information:
I am 67, live in S.E. Ohio (after moving from MD with my hubby of 36 yrs) and we love it here. I have 2 beautiful daughters & 5 grandchildren. I miss them all...

We recently lost our grandson (18) to SUICIDE on 10/12/09. He was an outgoing person and no one ever saw this coming. RIP (Rest in paradise) my dear sweet Kyle (3/8/91 - 10/12/09.)

We also have 2 dogs, ages 14 and 3 months who are a huge part of our family.

In 2009 and 2010 both Hubby and I have been in the hospital for major illnesses & we consider ourselves to be blessed & lucky to be alive.

Other Information:
I like working with computers, and most recently (2012) have become the Treasurer for a Genealogical Society. It's amazine what all you can find out about your families.

I sent out a generic email to all members of the 100 Plus Club as an announcement for the October Biggest Loser Challenge. It would have gone to your Spark Mail "in box" unless you have you settings so that you would not receive it. I'm not sure where else to tell you to look. If you wish to participate in the challenge, you can go to the main page for the100 Plus Club and click on the link for the Biggest Loser Challenge and sign up for the October Challenge. If you are not interested, then just disregard the email. Thank you for letting me know.

Hey there,I will try to look for a site that has a lot of diabetic recipes and send them your way. I had diabetes but with the last check up it is gone, with me losing 65 lbs helped a lot also, still have the burning in the feet though and my doctor just up my gabapatin up to one whole pill 3 times a day....sucks getting old, but i was told when i was a smart alec teenager who knew everything that smoking would not bother me, sure wish i would have listen to mom now...that damn oxygen hose gets in the way to much..LOL But we must make the best out of the situation we are in for now I guess...hope your hubby gets better soon. I know with the weather change its gonna be harder to do....have a wonderful Sunday Evening....
