SparkPoints: 34,835

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."

Thanks for your kind comments. I enjoyed looking at your photos. What a nice family you have!

It would be nice if having the stomach flu lessened my appetite permanently, but it does give me some insights into my body "chemistry". Unfortunately, my husband now has it, and I am feeling a little better, thank God.

Hope you have a nice day!

emoticon Happy Halloween emoticon Glad to know you are doing well. I've just had my Seventh Sparkversary, so I'm working on a new year of getting my fat off. At least, I haven't gained back what I lost, which is a victory for me. My 4 little GDs are doing fine. Lots of HUGS.

I just discovered people were posting to my page...not real tech say, and still learning this website. It would be nice to have flowers all year, mine are beginning to look tired, and when we get that first frost, they'll all be gone. I just read the blog you posted about the anniversary of your daughter's death. Anniversaries are hard, but I believe that your daughter and her father are together, and at peace. Ginny emoticon
