Spoiled kitty Mittens
Hi, this is updated 12/2013. I am now 62 years old and work part time in home health care. My daughters are now 26 and 31 years old, and successful in their careers. We have 3 grand kids, 2 boys 7 and 4 and a granddaughter who is 5. My husband and I love to travel but we also are homebodies who love to do home improvement chores and projects. We enjoy movies, casinos (music, not gambling much), time with our kids and grand kids. I have gained 10 pounds in the past year if two, and need to improve my eating and fitness habits to keep in good health as we age. Wish me luck!
My goals are to get to a healthy weight (120# would be good), make my husband proud of me, and improve my overall health. I have a lot of nice clothes that are one size too small for me (I'm a 16 now and they are size 12/14).
I'm just beginning today, but am starting with smaller portions, 8-8 oz glasses of water daily, journaling my food eaten, and keeping the eye on the prize.
My name is Katie Martell, I live in Port Orchard, Wa. I retired from the department of the navy two years ago. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I enjoy poetry, the classics in literature, any kind of good music. My favorite things to do are walking, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! Youll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and well all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
