Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 106,439

Fitness Minutes: 105,094

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

LOL...last night on the evening news they were talking about how rare it is for all the groundhogs to predict an early spring but as you pointed out, we're all having such weird weather all over the place that this is no surprise to me....just a joke! LOL

Oh Brother! LOL You nailed it Ginie! I devolved into the social part, spending too much time chatting on my favorite teams and not enough time doing the work of getting healthy! Now, I have made some pretty permanent changes and even my husband reads nutrition labels but there are a lot of other things that are yet to be changed. Since I'm still a babe in the woods, I have some time....better re-rail and get rolling!

Thanks Ginie!! Although Millisma isn't on my friend list, I visited her blog and left a comment. She certainly has a lot on her plate and has had a lot on her plate for quite awhile. Makes my difficulties seem small.

Thanks for the well wish. We should be good for the lab appointment this morning but the doctor appointment may be in the storm. All the schools in the area are canceled already which means there will be lots fewer cars to navigate around. That's a good thing. Now, I have to get up and get going so I can get a few things done prior to getting John up.

Sorry I missed your call. I decided it was best to run down by my folks before today's storm.
