Hi, I am a mother of 9 children, 6 living & (3 in spirit). Grandmother to 12, Great Grandmother to 9. I am a Christian, & I lost my Soul mate Sept 2008. after almost 37yrs together. At the moment I am trying to move house into a Bungalow to live near the Sea by our # 1 son, which my husband & I had planned to do to enjoy our retirement.

My Goals:
I would like to lose at least 3 Stone if not more, I recently lost 10 lbs during my first month, but unfortunately I had two separate falls within a week & was in so much pain I could not continue my walking, so now have only lost 5 lbs.

My Program:
I drink a lot of water, Hot in winter with either Lime or Lemon juice as this helps to stop me feeling hungry. Hot chocolate at bedtime to help me sleep. I am eating smaller portions of meals, in a bowl instead of a dinner plate & plenty of fruit & veg, Love it.

Personal Information:
My name is Brenda Anne, but I have never liked it. So since my Husband passed away I decided I have to live a new life on my own, I am trying to move house to a new area, so I have a new name which is ANNIE !! It is a family name from way back . I live in Sheffield, in England.

Other Information:
I love this SparkPeople Site . Just hope I can lose the weight to help me be a healthier person & hopefully prolong my life a little longer as I need to get my Family History Done!!I am a Christian, & have been a member for approx 45 yrs in .....

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Feb. 6, you recognize that there are certain times to do certain things, and if you try to do something for which the time is not right, you are sure to fail. For some, this might result in the kind of patience that yields little results, but you're not the kind to sit around waiting idly by for opportunity to knock; if the time for doing something does not come of its own accord, you will do something else until it does -- and that something else is almost always as remarkable and fruitful in the end.

    You have a vibrant style, and your personal and public personas may actually be one and the same -- meaning, of course, that being yourself is almost effortless for you. Indeed, you achieve much on the merits of your personality alone; you get what you want because of you who are.

    Hope your day was wonderful!

    Hi, Annie!
    I just read of your wish to ride a hot-air balloon. That's a wonderful wish, and one you can accomplish even though you are alone. Contact the local balloon club, and volunteer to work on a balloon crew. They need lots of people to get up early and spread the envelope on the ground and in other ways help to prepare for launch. In our area, many retired peope work this way, make new friends, and in return get a free ride with an expert pilot.

    Being widowed gives you a special challenge in your life. I am 62 and have been a widow for 9 years. Given a choice, I would have become a hermit. I had to get a job though, and after I found I could do that, I have forced myself to go to other activities. I was surprised to find I can talk to strangers, some of them seem to like me, and some have become friends.

    Try reaching out to a new challenge, and you may soon be flying in a hot-air balloon! emoticon

    I struggle with waiting for the Lord's timetable to match with mine. But, I know he has a plan and cares about is. I have faith that you can be where you need to be. Have a great week.

    Just stopping by to say hello. I guess I forgot that you were in England. How is the move coming? I found out my husband wishes to retire by the sea. That was a weird conversation because we really have never talked about it. We will I am sure.
