Need to lose weight for health reasons, and because hubby and
I want to do some traveling. No longer have children or grandchildren
living with us so are ready for some new adventures!!
Been married for 51 yrs. (high school sweethearts) and raised 3 boys and 1 girl plus a couple grandchildren. Now it's time for us
to get more play time in!!

Member Since: 1/23/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,158

My Goals:
I am going to lose 130 lbs. by March 26th 2007!!
Would like to lose 40 lbs by June 2006 as my husband
and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary then.We are high school sweethearts.

My Program:
Since my knees are garbage due to osteoarthritis,I had to give up my walking program. Am now starting
with Jorge Cruise's 8 Minute Exercises for Real People. This covers people who need to lose over
thirty pounds and cannot do strenuous moves. Good
for people who are limited in movements. Also am
journaling what goes into my mouth and calorie
counting. Have yoyo dieted for so many years, seems
this is the only way to go!!

Personal Information:
Born and raised in Sacramento, Ca. in 1936. Married
my high school sweetheart and have 4 grown children.
Three boys, and 1 daughter all between the ages of
40 (baby 6'3 1/2" just turned 40), and 46.We have 8 grandchildren between the ages of 2yrs.and 18 yrs. We
all live within 6 miles of each other! We were blessed with that!!

Other Information:
I enjoy gardening, am a decorative & tole painter that works on different surfaces, from canvas to wooden pieces and furniture etc. Also love creating
cloth dolls with painted faces. Husband when retired
from his practice joined me in the wood shop and we
had a craft business for a number of years and sold
items to stores. Since one son and his two children
moved in with us, (10 years ago) we haven't had as
much time to do our thing!! Plus we moved from our
5 acres (which I dearly loved) to a smaller house
in rural suburbia!Only a couple miles from where we
were. Certainly not the same as open space where you could walk outside in your pj's and only the Quail and cotton tails saw you!! Miss them! Miss all
the room I had in the other house! Going on 3 yrs.
at this place and garage is still full of furniture,
clothes and holiday decor. Old neighbor still has
some of our tools etc. stored in his horse barn.

    I was checking back in to see how you are doing since October and to say Congrats on your two year anniversary as a SPARKER. I've signed in now for 109 days and I've lost 26#, which has been slow, but I'm happy as long as I never ever gain back a single pound of it. We can do this!! It has been so upsetting to me to check on people and find they never really got started or they have quit signing in to Sparkpeople. This is so important to care for our health and well being.
