My name is Janet. I am 71 years old, 4"9" tall, have struggled with weight since age 37. Before that, I never weighed more than 100 pounds! I have two grown sons, was widowed in 2006. I worked at a homeless shelter, a Christian ministry, for 25 years, retiring in May 2007. Now I am a volunteer editor, working for several ministries from home. Technology allows me to volunteer for a ministry halfway across the country. Prior to working at the shelter, I was a high school business teacher ...
My name is Janet. I am 71 years old, 4"9" tall, have struggled with weight since age 37. Before that, I never weighed more than 100 pounds! I have two grown sons, was widowed in 2006. I worked at a homeless shelter, a Christian ministry, for 25 years, retiring in May 2007. Now I am a volunteer editor, working for several ministries from home. Technology allows me to volunteer for a ministry halfway across the country. Prior to working at the shelter, I was a high school business teacher for 5 years (St. Louis, MO), then a stay-at-home mom for 11 years.

In May 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I finished treatment in October 2009, got my first "all-clear" report on 12/29/09 (my birthday). June 2010: I am now adjusting to the everyday challenges of secondary lymphedema. April 2014: 5 years cancer-free!

I have used a "habit-at-a-time" approach to building new habits -- getting enough water, eating fruits/veggies daily, cutting off eating 2-3 hours before bedtime, etc. SP's "Other Goals" area has helped me build consistency, not only w/eating goals, but also with spiritual goals.

I have gained much insight and practical help from three books/Bible studies: The Lord's Table (TLT), available free on-line at the Setting Captives Free website, Thin Within, and Made to Crave.
