I am a 60 year old woman who has had a wonderful marriage for the past 40 years (as of May 31, 2010) to the love of my life. We have two great children; a daughter who has been married for 10 years to a great man and who gave us our only Grandchild, Collin, and a son who is to be married in September of this year. We also have a cat, Casper, who is 12 years old and thinks he is the boss of our home! We live in the deep south, and are a very close family. I joined SparkPeople when I found out I had some serious health issues, so that I could learn more about them through some of the teams, and so that I could live a healthier lifestyle by eating healthier and exercising more. I have been a member for about 6 months and have been reading blogs, articles, recipes and Spark Pages! I love the way everyone encourages each other and cares about each other, so I thougth I'd begin sharing my Spark Page as well. I'd love to interact with others.
My goals are to share information with others, lose about 20lbs. and learn how to eat healthier so that my husband and I will feel better and enjoy life more.
Since I've been reading SparkPeople, I have begun walking and exercising some and buying and cooking more fruits, veggies and drinking more water. My husband has followed suit and is walking 3 miles a day. I have lost about 8 pounds. He has lost 10.
My name is Trish, my husband's name is Steve, my daughter is Andi, my son is Jason, and my Grandson is Collin.
When I work, I can only stay online for a little while, so I am unable to participate in only a couple of blogs, etc. everyday. My computer at home is broken, so I can't get on at home, either. If I don't answer you right away, I will. Maybe our computer will be fixed soon.
We are a family of readers! We all love to read and share books. We read novels, science fiction, mysteries, spiritual books and whatever else is interesting to us at the time. We are also member of the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), and ride roller coasters. We have met many people and have friends who live practically all over the United States.

Thanks for your helpful comments on my blog! Those are very good tips - it's very important for me to be appreciative of all that my husband's parents do and how terrific they are - I must be careful not to inadvertently offend, although they are pretty understanding. Thanks for the advice, and congratulations on your son's engagement!
