Starting picture. Vacation August 2011. Thank goodness for the bear. He makes me look smaller.
I have 3 pics in my gallery
8/27/13 I have began 6 weeks (and beyond) of Dr. Joel Furhman's EAT TO LIVE nutritritain plan. Basically a vegetarian and avoid processed carbs etc. This is a huge step for me but I'm convinced it's the right plan based on it's sound medical science evidence. I will not be hungry and will be nourishing my body with nutrient dense foods. I have wasted far to many years of being obese and malnourished on processed foods. And if nothing else the cows and pigs on my neighbors farm are real happy ...

I'm 50 years old. August 2012 the Drs. told me that they were quite sure that I had cancer in my neck lymph nodes. They removed them and tested for everything. They thankfully found nothing. It's time to quit pushing my luck.Whether I had cancer or thankfully did not; it's time to change my life. If I want to live longer it's time to eat clean and exercise. My health has been good but I fear that parts are wearing out and going to break down soon. Statistics show what healthy eating, healthy weight, and regular exercise decrease cancer risks, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, etc. dramatically. So much of it's in my hands. God blessed me with a healthy body. Why would I try to destroy it?
I'm happily married with the most wonderful young adult children. I work a very demanding nursing outreach job. I'm a busy person but I need to allow myself to take care of my own health.
I am 100 lbs. overweight. I miss my agility the most. I'm not a real athlete. I too easily forget that I feel so good after a work out. It's honestly not the hard to make right choices. It's a matter of rewiring your brain. What takes longer? Pack a lunch or drive to a drive thru. It's not about lack of time. It's about repeated bad decisions.
My closet has too many sizes in it. Not because of yo-yo dieting but because of going up, up, up every year. I always have hopes that I will go down, down, down.
I can renew me. I'm going to realize my goals and so can you. There is a real inner me waiting to be unveiled.
God has given me many Blessings for which I am very thankful.
By taking better care of my body I will be able to have more stamina and agility and decrease health risks.
2014 will debut the improved me. I have hung in there on Spark. I have learned allot. The support and tools are awesome. It's time to use it consistently.
By becoming better organized at home, work, and Church. I will be better able to realize my lifes'goals.

Phenomenon is one of my favorite movies. We all have the ability t do something to change someone elses life for the better. Never underestimate the difference you can make in the World! Everybody can do something to make the World a better place.
What will you do? Start by doing something for persons closest to you and reach out from there.
By the Grace of God I was born in a country that I am free to worship as I choose. I am thankful for all my freedoms and safety. I Pray for World Peace!
