My beloved DH, caught off guard!
I am a 57 y/o retiree living in Urbanna, VA (I had to tell my age so you'd know I'm NOT as old as I look!!) My husband, Dave, and I are sort of "newly weds" - having been married for only four years. Between us we have four children and six grandchildren. We're both actively involved in our church and the pursuit of spritial growth. My favorite hobby is working with stained glass, and then giving personalized stained glass gifts to family and friends. I also enjoy light reading, spending time outdoors (except during the summer!!) and spending time with family and friends.
Before coming to SparkPeople, I had lost almost 20 pounds on the 3 Hour Diet (3HD). It's a wonderful program, founded by Jorge Cruise, in which you eat every 3 hours. Of course it also calls for exercise and 8 glasses of water per day, but the core idea is to eat something every 3. I became disillusioned at the 3HD website, however, because there was so little corporate response. At the invitation of Gaylinn, another 3HD member, I came "over" to Spark People, and I'm so glad I did! It's like going from a dingy to an ocean liner! This site is HUGE and and the possibilities are endless! I'm looking forward to developing many new friendships on this site.
Have a happy, healthy and BLESSED day!
My goal is to achieve a healthy weight and maintain that weight!!
Eat sensibly every 3 hours
Drink at least 8 glasses of water
Exercise regularly (this is my Achilles Heel!)
Limit or eliminate liquid calories (such as wine!)
My name is Elizabeth, but I prefer to be called Liz. My user name, Lidabet, is a family nickname I've had since I was a very small child - and aparently unable to pronunce my real name. I currently live near Urbanna, VA, a small water front community on the Chesapeake Bay. I was raised, however, on a small farm in SD and that is where my heart really is. Consequently, I love nature and small communities... and I get claustrophobic in large crowds!
My favorite quote is ... "What you are is God's gift to you - what you make of yourself is your gift to God." author unknown. It reminds me that our very life is a gift from God and it is our duty to treasure and take care of it - as well as all of God's gifts - and that includes my health, my neighbors, the animals and the planet!

Long ago, one silent night,
God revealed His glory bright;
His own image came to man
For salvation's matchless plan.
Jesus, Savior, Shepherd, King--
Lord of all to you we bring
Praises, wonder, thanks and love
For this GIFT from God above.
My dear friend,
May God shower you with blessings this Christmas and through out the New Year.
