2017 and I am looking to shape up and take off 20 pounds by my birthday, November 18, when I will be 60.

The 16 pounds that came off in 2016, have helped a bit, but oh, that right hip is giving me fits! (as of Summer 2017 hip is better and I am another 6 pounds lighter)

Sitting more with a combination of, additional computer work to add to my landscaping duties, being a part time caregiver for my sweet 92 year old Mama and still not back to where my activity level was, before grief took over and grounded me, when my oldest son, passed away, May 18 2014.

Well, I know what the problem is and knowing is half the battle, so GI Joe says.On to a plan, written with a date and off I go with my spark buddies, down the spark trail to better, health.

    My mom was born in 1924. Glad to hear you are walking. I have been able to double my distance in the past month. Gained another 10 lbs before I got serious, so my knees are swelling badly with the change in the weather for fall. This week, I am proud to say that I have lost 5 of those extra pounds and am determined to stick with it. emoticon

    Thank you Chris, for your lovely comments on my blog. You write so beautifully yourself, that even your blog comments sound like a beautifully written blog. emoticon

    I am happy her hear about your successes, although the scales are being stubborn, you have accumulated some other victories to qualify for feeling proud.

    I will stay in touch with your Spark Page. I want to make sure I am honoring Kenny and praying for him and your family on the day of the walk.

    IN every moment you get the choice to be inspirational. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to be your most remarkable self. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to listen to your heart. Or not. Bri Seeley
