Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi, I'm KittyF
I'm now 62, grandma of 6 and I've been on Spark people for 9 years.
I've got arthritis and diabetes that would both be made better if I lost weight. I was very weak when i joined but I'm stronger this year, and feeling stronger I think I should be able to start loosing weight instead of just hoping. so far, no weight loss to speak of, but I'm always working toward more functional fitness. No matter my weight, being able to get around without pain or fatigue is a major goal. Recently found that Gluten seems to make my joints hurt, which is good information. I'm doing much better about leaving it alone which means less pain, YAY
Loose 14 lbs by Christmas.
Strengthen main muscle groups so I can walk without pain in back or joints.
Ride bike, hike
If my knees allow, Jump rope & run.
My dream is to hike the Grand Canyon.
arm and shoulder exercises
Walk every day for 20 minutes
I'm Kitty, from SW PA.
I grew up in Colorado Springs, CO and have a brother and 3 sisters.
I'm married, & have three daughters and five grandkids.I like to sew, read and go to church. I used to hike a lot in Colorado and want to get strong enough to do that again. I miss it.
I can't say what my favorite book is except for the Bible.
I have favorite authors, Georgette Heyer, Louis LAmour, but not really a favorite book.
I'm that way about music as well. I have a lot of faves in many genres, but my favorite genre is Hymns.

A hug is something special
A hug can give such joy
A hug can say a thousand words
Without a single spoken one
A hug can put things right again
When everything seems wrong
A hug can be a lovely thing
It doesn't have to contain a touch
A hug can be on paper
The word 'hug' just means so much
So I'm sending you a special hug
Not physical, it's true
But this hug is sent to let you know
I think the world of you!
Have a wonderful week as we transition from February to March!

A Little end-of-the-week Encouragement
We don't have to worry
about how the week went
or how the next one will go.
Because all our days, all our ways,
are in the hands of One who loves us.
We sometimes feel uncertain...
could that possibly be made into good?
Then just when we least expect it, we find the answer--
that all our mistakes, all our hurts,
all we wish we could trade from these past few days
(and from a lifetime)
are being noticed, handled with care, turned into
something more than we could imagine.
You're loved. You're valuable.
You've got a purpose.
God's got a plan.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

We have both been there for a long time and I want the best for you! I struggle with temptation too. My hubby loves snacks and sweets and I don't want to deny him but sometimes I see his goodies and I want them. I'm better off looking in the fridge and not in the junk food pantry. LOL.
