Hello, All! I joined SparkPeople when I had over 90 lbs to lose, and now I am approaching half of the way to my goal. Unfortunately I went backwards recently during the process of separating from my husband, so I have gained a few pounds. But, after two months of separation, I am ready to make my health my biggest priority again--especially because I developed high blood pressure recently during this emotional time. I'm editing my SparkPage today (3-18-2010) to reflect my new life as a strong, single woman.

Member Since: 9/21/2006

My Goals:
Arthritis has been a significant factor in my health all of my adult life. I want to become lean to minimize the pain and mobility problems, so I can lead an active and fulfilling life. I've also developed high blood pressure recently and hope to address this with diet and exercise, too.


My Program:
I have been eating more naturally and locally. I concentrate on nutrition rather than on being "on a diet." I eat a broad array of interesting fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. I also do moderate exercise such as walking and riding my bike.



Personal Information:
I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and have lived on the West Coast most of my adult life. I was married for 19 years and recently separated, moving from the Seattle area to Eugene, Oregon. I have a daughter who is just about 18 and ready to go to college. I'm self-employed as a mosaic artist, eBay seller, and antique dealer.


Other Information:
I have many interests and passions. I have 20 years of sobriety. I believe in a Higher Power who helps me with all things. I love to travel, garden, do artwork, read, write, cook, and spend time with close friends.

    Hi there!

    Thanks for dropping by my page and leaving your congratulations! I'm glad you find my progress inspirational. It is a great joy being able to help others on their journey. emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear about your separation. I like your attitude of being a "strong, single woman", though! It sounds like you're well on the road to healing. emoticon

    It's good to see that you're back. Welcome back, and best of luck to you!
