I have been a widow for a while now. I've been on spark people for nearly as long. I take care of my brother-in-law since he is retarded. His family can stand him in only small bits. This arrangement began before my husband died so we just continued it. He has the intellegence of a 4 year old, so I have to treat him more like a child. I have been able to teach him a few simple chores and things go along well most of the time.

Fitness Minutes: 28,786

My Goals:
I plan to eventually get down to around 130 but I plan to do it very slowly.

My Program:
My New Years Resolutions



1. I will continue to walk at least 30 minutes 5 days a week.

2. I will log my food at least 5 days a week (preferably 7 days a week, but I do get involved and don't turn on the computer).

3. I will do strength training 3 days a week, to begin with. That should establish that habit for me.





Personal Information:
I am a native of Indiana. I grew up in Valparaiso, Indiana but now live in South Bend.



Other Information:
I spend my time on the computer and reading. I have discovered many interesting books through friends in spark people. I also help out at the local history museum when I can.



I enjoy all sports. I, of course , follow all the Notre Dame sports. I am a life long Chicago Cubs and Bears fan, and I am now rooting for the Indianapolis Colts--who can not be happy with a team that doesn't seem to know how to lose!

Thanks for explaining it to me Delores. Very clever and I have never seen it done with paper bags. You certainly seemed to have had a wonderful time.

Hi Delores,
I am a old/new member of the 50,60,70 and older team. I too am a widow and live along with my little dog. My husband died May 2008.
I live in California, yes I was born in California and I have never lived any where else.
Looking forward to knowing you better.
Shirley G,
