Hi, I'm a 66 year old with 5 grown children ,9 grandkids, 6 great grandkids. 1 Dachshund, 1 yellow lab (and a partridge in a pear tree :o) No just kidding .. and a wonderful kind husband of many years. I am finally retired from over 30 years nursing (RN. I need to get a lot more fit and leaner by at least 42 pounds. Sparkpeople has been a great site. I have made many sparkfriends and have been inspired by them all.

Member Since: 10/8/2009

Fitness Minutes: 1,390

My Goals:
I started Jan.09 with 105 lbs. to lose (225 lbs. on my 5ft. frame). I still have a long way to go at least 42 more lbs. (I'll know when I get there.)

I want to become a lot more active and physically fit.

My Program:
I am doing low carb to control my diabetes.

I am walking with my FitBit.
Plan to join gym in May (this month)with Mom and sister.

Personal Information:
My mission statement: I will not run away from my dreams because of fear of what might happen. I will have faith that no matter what comes my way that with God...all things are possible...I can overcome.
I will strive for peace and joy in all my relationships. I will strive to live a healthy lifestyle. I will strive to be considerate and humble with others. I will strive to live everyday with a grateful/thankful heart. I will try to live in the moments of my life...knowing very well that all of us are only a breath away from eternity.
My name is Jo...just jo.

Other Information:
Not sure where I got this:
"We can accumulate so much "stuff", that it weighs us down like a load of bricks on a pack mule. We spend more time buying, cleaning, and maintaining our stuff, than we do enjoying the simple pleasures like time with family and friends, the roof over our heads, and a hot meal to apprecite. It's surprising how lightening the load of our "stuff" can actually lighten our hearts as well. Something to think about"
**I have finally done the above quote. We have downsized our life from acres of land and a big 3,000+ house. I'm loving it.
