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 Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

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: 72,139

Fitness Minutes: 69,549

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.

Ginie, the "diet" part is whatever food plan we choose...I am not changing the spark plan I was on before...just applying the things I am doing...the books don't give a food plan you can use the Weight Watchers plan or whatever plan...this program is about "TRAINING your BRAIN to think like a thin person!" And it is WORKING!

God Bless!

Yes, if Julie didn't keep track of the days I would be sunk!

HUGS and blessings to you!

Hi, Ginie, I'm back from the elderly in-laws' house, and thank you for asking about cooking! I like cooking! I remember that you do, too, and I remember a couple of months ago your priest coming for dinner and you were having trouble deciding the menu. I remember that cold berry cake, which I would like to have a piece of RIGHT NOW.

Anyway, I made ginger-fried chicken, simmered Japanese pumpkin, a cucumber salad with rice vermicelli noodles, and a sweet and sour salad made from shredded daikon (great white radish) and carrot. I brought some of all this home for my 23-year-old daughter, and she gave me a thumbs up, so I feel successful today!

Oh yeah, I wanted to let you know that I ordered some clothes. IN THE RIGHT SIZE! Thank you for the little push!

Have a happy Saturday!
