Constant renewal...

Dec 29th will be my 62nd birthday~ HURRAY! LOL Before SP, I went from size 22 to size 14-16 on my own. Then crazy things happened... SP has been a godsend for more than 9 yrs now... January 2010 I was on steroids for a bit and lost more weight (?!) but when I went OFF them--40 more pounds! And the inches came back with them! Yikes! LOL

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010. As of August 2015 I have been in ...

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010. As of August 2015 I have been in remission for FIVE years-- YAY!

But my weight?? There have been side effects... LOL

My continuing challenges are trying to regain strength, flexibility, energy, and overall health--instead of pounds--with a host of health obstacles: diabetes, neuropathy, chronic kidney disease, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, something NOT lupus, now labeled "undifferentiated connective tissue disease"...add the aftermath of five other non-cancer-related surgeries, two major vitamin deficiencies, and a new version of arthritis in 2011 and 2012... plus a lung disease NOT asthma that does the same thing asthma does... hopefully NOT previews of coming attractions! LOL

In the middle of all this, I've been able to attend church regularly, my laptop crashed, I got and spent a windfall in the form of a 401K I didn't even know existed but had to spend most of it or lose it, and I'm settling into a new home thanks to my previous landlord NOT paying his mortgage. The bank said "Everybody out!..."

All this would make a great melodrama, don't you think? LOL

I love my church, I love SP, the people, the teams, the tools-- It's SO nice to have such positive influences... Life is all about change, and I plan on making great ones with the help of SP and all my friends...
... the more the merrier!

Every morning I wake up... is a GOOD DAY! LOL

My Goals:
When I found out my Lean body mass is
137 pounds (?!) My goal was less than that--no wonder I was having problems with what I was eating!--my nutrition specialist said I wasn't eating enough, and I had to reset my goals! LOL Makes it easier though--now I only have to lose about 65 pounds, 5 pounds at a time--instead of 100! LOL
I am still working toward:
More stamina.
More energy.
More LIFE!

My Program:
I reset my ticker every year on my birthday, to track yearly progress: my plan is to use the nutrition, fitness and other goals trackers every day, not only for better health but with unrelated goals. I will find creative ways to work around my disabilities. I will post online as often as possible, and TRY to stay informed. LOL

*** I'M GOING TO*** **LEARN TO PLAY** *******AGAIN!*******

Personal Information:
I am disabled, receiving government benefits... and finally DOING the things I love that I can still do, especially singing!
I've had a few of my poems published, but the hard drive crash ate my first attempt at a novel...
As much as I'm able I'm using my love of set design, building, etc, to create a bright, serene environment for myself and my three furbabies, Licorice, Isis and Amigo. I love the Renaissance, fantasy and sci-fi conventions; theatre and music events; reading, especially Tolkien--but several yrs ago I lost my vision for 6 wks and now have the beginning of cataracts... I can only do visually intense things in small doses... I'm SO grateful to be able to do that much! What a JOY it is to SEE! LOL
I've crewed and been IN independent films, and keep in touch with my friends in the business. And I'm studying the Korean language (aka Hangul)...keeping my, --as Poirot put it--"Leetle gray cells" alive and kicking! LOL I attend church regularly and am redisc

Other Information:
I live in Washington State, in the greater--and WETTER-- Seattle area... LOL
In 2012, after 22 yrs together, my DXH left... Oddly enough, still friends. He's in TX, and we talk or text several times a week--more than when we were living together in the same house! LOL
I have cats (2 males, 1 female--pics in my gallery) The older two were a gift from DXH before the split, and pure joy. My other little one was feral in 2010; now he lives inside--but he's having adjustment issues, and spooks and runs from the least little thing. It doesnt't help that he was injured during the interim moves... Now we're settling down in our new home and he can--hopefully--relax with the rest of us! :-) Getting there...
Life is full of challenges, some of them fun, some not so much. I'm looking forward to seeing what's around the next corner!
