I want to lose weight so I can be healthy and will be able to play on the floor with my grandchildren and keep up with my husband on the golf course. It's just too hard to do these things with all the extra weight. Carol

My Goals:
My goal is to start out slowly and then move faster as I go in losing weight. I have a lot of weight to lose so I really have to stay focused. It's hard for me to exercise but again I'm starting out slow and hope to move faster as I go.

My Program:
I am counting calories as I've had luck with that before. I'm also doing ten minutes of stretching and exercises everyday and weighing in once a week. Also parking my car further away from my destination so I have to get more walking in.

Personal Information:
My name is Carol and my email address is: and I would love to get emails, especially from the age group of 55-60 yr. olds who also have a lot of weight to lose. I think it really helps if you have someone in the same age group and weight group to confer with. I am a wife, mother of 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren with another one on the way in mid-February. I babysit my 4 yr. old grandson full-time and will be taking care of the new baby in February. I love to read, take care of my grandchildren, travel, go for coffee and play cards.

Other Information:
I love to read romantic fiction but like other reading also. My favorite t.v. show right now is Army Wives.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }

'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

Thanks for the post on my sparkpage - I look forward to you coming to my sparkpage and clicking on the group Getting healthy in 2013.

Exercise for arthritus - I find that walking is the best. And my older sister has it very bad and walks daily to help control it.

Hope to see you on the group soon
