This Is Who I Am

I am a healthy 66 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live 6 mos in Canada and 6 mos in La Paz, Mexico. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren we have. I do well getting exercise and love healthy food. Where I fall down is on sweets but this site has made me more mindful of what I eat.

My Goals:
I would like to get control over what I do in my life. I want to have the time to create a healthy lifestyle no matter where I am, at home, visiting or enjoying a few hrs. of social time with or without friends.

My Program:
I will schedule a portion of my time to planning my food and exercise, doing the exercise and preparing the food while leaving enough time for optional things. This will take a lot of pre preparing while in Canada as we live far from the grocery store.

Personal Information:
My name is Gina and I live part of the yr. in northern Canada and part in La Paz , Baha Sur, Mexico. I am married to Charlie and have 2 dogs Chica (poodle cross) and Otto, a Rottweiler cross. I will turn 66 this yr. and have 7 children and 10 grandchildren.



Other Information:
My favorite books are A Tale of Two Cities and The trilogy Lord of the Rings. Mostly I love my Faith and will do anything to further it. Being a Bahai is the best thing to ever happen to me and I have such great expectations of humanity. While all the old guard is slowly disintegrating a new world is rising and it will be so much better. To me Spark is part of the new system which is all about truth and reality.

Gina,

I was on thyroid medication for HYPO, but my VA cardiologist, took me off of it, because he told me that there was nothing wrong with my thyroid. He said that my T3 & T4 tests were fine. Well of course they're fine, as I'm on medication. I don't understand how a cardiologist can take me off of that medication. It makes no sense, to me.

I've gained 35 lbs. since I've been in this chair, eating the way you see in my blogs, and the cardiologist told me that I was eating too much and that's why I'm gaining weight. I tried to explain some things to him, but he cut me off and wouldn't hear of it.

All I can do is pray for him and let God have it. When I do see my PCP, on the 4th I'll let her know what happened.

Be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -
