SparkPoints: 28,372

Fitness Minutes: 20

My Goals:
Watch intake of food better. Want to get to 150, then see how much farther I should go.

My Program:
No real program, but do like to read the info from Spark people and get inspiration from their successes.

Personal Information:
I am Betty I., AKA Javagal (I love mocha javas unfortunately) I was born in MN. but left when I was 8 yrs old, to live in warmer CA. I married at 18, lived in North Hollywood, and then many cities in So. CA. Now in Sacramento. At 23, I contracted polio after having had two children. Came out of hospital after 7 wks. Could walk fairly well. Never used any help to walk. In the mid 70''s I was hit with post polio syndrome. Something I had no knowledge of until in the 80''s. Just knew I was doing a lot of falling and always tired. Had two more children after polio so have two boys and two girls. I spend my days in a power chair, and am thankful for it. Just not possible to do any exercise, can do some stretches, that''s all. Hard to lose this way, but I am going to try my hardest as the extra weight does not help the aches and pains. Love this site!! I joined 50+ members with 50-99 pounds to lose, and one other with great people but I couldn't keep up with the correspondence neces

Other Information:
Favorite book other than the Bible: "In the Presence of My Enemies" by Gracia Burnham. A true story of her and her husband's almost year in the captivity of the Albu Sayyaif terrorist group through the jungles of the Philippines.

"Life is like an echo, you get back what you send out."

Hello and thank you for the bear hug goodie. And for sharing your memories of bringing up your kids. Someday, good manners will reassert themselves.
