Hi, I'm a 67- year -old with 5 grown children ,9 grandkids, 6 great grandkids and 1 Dachshund, I have a wonderful kind husband of many years(43). I am finally retired from over 30 years nursing (RN. I need to get a lot more fit and leaner by at least 30 pounds. Sparkpeople has been a great site. I have made many spark friends 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 30 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.
I joined local gym...Now I just need to go. :o).




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.

    HI!
    I'm new to spark people and doing a diet called, Dukan, I like it and I am getting results, not as fast as the book and other bloggers but I'm just glad to see the scale move down. Weighing every day and keeping a food journal. Yay for you and your weight loss it's good to see another nurse,mom,grand mom,wife on this site. 😉

    Thanks Kren and Tish. There's just no place like "home" and that is exactly what I feel
    about this site. You two and PJ have been constants on this site. It feels so good to be able to come back and you are still here.

    Love you guys.

    It was so wonderful to see you!! You are doing fantastic.. I fell off the wagon big time when I had to go back on prednisone but got back on in mid July and have lost 23 pounds since then. I'm eating on plan and getting more exercise in. I do hope you stick around. The teams can get pretty dull sometimes and we need a different face!
