I have 5 pics in my gallery



Hi fellow Sparks,
I have lost 10 lbs with 30 to go, but I'm mostly interested in improving my health, but then they go hand-in-hand, don't they?

My Goals:
I''m working to lose 30 (more) pounds - 10 already down.

My Program:
I am following a ''low carb for life'' diet. I don''t really have a model I follow - just "wingin'' it".

Personal Information:
I live in Mankato, MN, have an 18 yr old daughter, and I have been diagnosed with MS for 23 yrs
I was diagnosed with MS 23 years ago, and didn''t really have problems, other than the infamous ''MS fatigue'' we all seem to be familiar with, for 15 yrs. then in 3 yrs, between the ages of 39 and 43, I went from no problems to using a cane, to a walker, and finally now I am in a w/c, and for a few months I lived in the nursing home and it looked as if that might be permenant. But happily I got better, went home and got my (then)15yr old daughter back with me. She is now 18 and has her own apt. I live alone (an aid comes in 3 hrs/day to help me) and some days I feel great!

Hi Jeani, I just wanted to let you know that SP support is only 25 miles away. If you are able and/or have someone take you, we could maybe meet for an outing maybe at the mall or if the temperature is agreeable somewhere at a park. There is always something for me to do in Mankato and I usually have time during the day and every Wednesday I'm in North Mankato from 18:30 - 20:00. Let me know if there is anything I might be able to do for you. Talk to you later. Lisa B.

Hi Ken,
I've been dealing with some serious health issues - so I haven't been here for awhile. I will try to get back here from time to time, but I just can't promise to participate at this time...

I was wondering if you are still active and let you know that another person has joined The Peoples spark stop by and let me know I think the sight may start to grow if we give it a little more time and TLC.
