SparkPoints: 153,231

Fitness Minutes: 79,527

My Goals:
To be able to walk up stairs fast without panting. Update June 10th. 2007. I am maintaining at 190.

My Program:
To go slow and steady.

Personal Information:
In Mar. of 2006 I weighed 251. I decided it was time to quit buying larger clothes and do something. My wife was battling high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol count and borderline diabetes and she started watching her food selection and portions. I went from 251 to 237 Jan. 7th. when I found SPARKS. We live on a farm in Northern Ill. We are actively farming. As you can see from my pictures we enjoy flowers, gardening and grandkids. I'm on the LEE COUNTY board for THRIVENT doing volunteer work in the surrounding communities. Very satisfying endeavor.

Other Information:
My latest book I enjoyed was JUNE by Mary Sanders Smith. Published by LINTEL 24 Blake, Middletown, NY 10940. It's a story of summer life in the 1940's on a farm through the eyes of a young niece.

Thanks new sparkie friend for the awesome crown goodie...I LOVE it! Thanks even more for you caring and insightful comments that came with the goodie. I love my sparkling friends...they are the most supportive and wonderful people on planet earth!

My daddy was a farmer when I was a little girl in Iowa...but even after we moved to the 'big city' he still put his gardens in and tended his acreage for corn. Farming is the most important job in the world..and one of the hardest also!

Hugs to you new friend! emoticon
