Hi, I'm KittyF I'm now 63, grandma of 6 and I've been on Spark people for 10 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

Personal Information:
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.

Other Information:
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.

    β€œOn the quality of life:
    #1. Realize that each human being has a built-in capacity for recuperation and repair.
    #2. Recognize that the quality of life is all-important.
    #3. Assume responsibility for the quality of your own life.
    #4. Nurture the regenerative and restorative forces within you.
    #5. Utilize laughter to create a mood in which the other positive emotions can be put to work for yourself and those around you.
    #6. Develop confidence and ability to feel love, hope and faith, and acquire a strong will to live.” ~Norman Cousins

    emoticon A hug is something special
    A hug can give such joy
    emoticon A hug can say a thousand words
    Without a single spoken one
    emoticon A hug can put things right again
    When everything seems wrong
    emoticon A hug can be a lovely thing
    It doesn't have to contain a touch
    emoticon A hug can be on paper
    The word 'hug' just means so much
    emoticon So I'm sending you a special hug
    Not physical, it's true
    emoticon 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! emoticon
