SparkPoints: 43,044

Fitness Minutes: 150

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."

emoticon for stopping by my blog....It was a lovely day indeed. And thank you for the wishes. Betty, I feel the same way about you...we could just go on and no talking it would be so interesting.

Hope you friends don't ever have to go through the trauma of devastation. Just seeing the visuals on TV and the horrific stories is really depressing. The closest I have come to exepriencing an earthquake was just tremors we felt when we lived in Bombay in the 1960's. Guess we are too old to deal with these situations now.

it is a big dampener, with the havoc the earthquake has caused in Nepal and the aftershocks continuing till Sunday noon.

Prayers needed for the country and the victims. emoticon

Hugs, Prayers & Blessings
