Sacred Harp (Shape-Note) singing-One of my "passions"
My silly "Roezie-poo"!
I want to walk off the pounds. Hope to lose 50 lbs.
Hello- My name is Bertha but I like to be called BeBe (BB)
I currently live in Beavercreek Township, OH which is just outside of Beavercreek, OH near Xenia.
I am 59 years old and will turn the big 6-0 on Nov. 23
I'm a widow (since April 1999) and not currently involved in a relationship but would like to meet someone to share my life with. I am hoping to find a good Christian man who will accept me as I am.
I have two grown children – A son who is single who lives by himself and a married daughter, no grandchildren -yet.
I have a female cat – Roezie. She is just one of the many pets living here. I live with a friend and her family and they have a menagerie! Roezie adopted me as her “human” ;)
I am hoping to lose weight by walking as much as I am able and hopefully watching what I eat. Walking is easy but for me, watching what I eat, not so much (unless you are talking about watching it go from the plate into my mouth!!)
Some of my hobbies & interests are:
Reading, watching TV, Internet, photography, volunteering, Sacred Harp/Shape-Note singing
I'm a breast cancer survivor. Was diagnosed in 1995. Chemo and the following year I had a stem cell transplant using my own stem cells. This was done more as a preventative measure to assure the cancer would not return.
I am a Christian (United Methodist)
I am a registered Republican who really feels more like a Libertarian with strong conservative leanings. I like to consider myself as a “Bleeding Heart Conservative”. ;)
Lose 50 lbs by February 2013 or sooner.
Get a job (even if it's just part-time).
Born in Winston-Salem, NC, grew up in Dayton, OH, currently living in Beavercreek Twnshp, OH
Widowed since April 1999
Mother of 2 grown children: 1 son and 1 married daughter
Love Sacred Harp/Shape-Note singing
I see we do have a few things in common......no grandkids yet (thank goodness - my kid's NOT ready for that!), b-day of 11/25, *huge* fan of walking, reading, TV/net.......sang at one point but lost the "spirit" for that.......DESPISE politics, though (I consider myself a "mixed breed" with a mishmash of liberal and conservative views)......never thought of the concept of a "bleeding heart conservative".......an intriguing perspective, for sure!
Welcome to SP, BeBe - and best wishes on your journey to great health!

Welcome to SP!
You will find lots of support and motivation here.
If you haven't done so already, I recommend you join a few Spark Teams that interest you. It's a good way to be accountable and stay motivated. Plus, it's a great way to make friends who have similar interests.
Best of luck to you!

Glad you added me as a friend!! I do not live in Beavercreek but have dear family /friends who live in Centerville. The photo taken in Beavercreek on my page was taken last year during a bike ride we did from Grove City to Centerville.
Welcome to Spark!! The more you interact the more you'll get out of this.
One word of advice.............do NOT weigh yourself more than once a week...................................!
