Finally following doctor's advice...

I didn't mind being "gordita", but my doc said I should lose the weight for health. I am post menopausal, married 37 years before my husband passed away in Feb of 2011. He loved me the way I was and so do the people I've come to know and love during my mission trips. I am not trying to impress anyone, but I want to be around for my grandkids and for my extended family in Peru

SparkPoints: 121,720

Fitness Minutes: 48,750

My Goals:
To reach and stay around 180, maybe even as low as 160 if possible, SOME time within 2014. I may never be able to fit into my 40 year old wedding dress, but I can at least hope to be fit and healthy for my remaining years of service.

My Program:
My daughter, Abi, and I are in this together, by changing our eating habits and developing an exercise habit.

Personal Information:
I was born in Texas, but I''ve lived in Rochester most of my life. I became a Christian my senior year of high school (Spencerport class of ''71) and met Ansel at an Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship retreat during my 2nd year at SUNY at New Paltz. We married less than a year later (Oct 27, ''73) and after losing our first child went on to have 3 others - Abi (12 -77) Ben (8-83) and Cassie (10-86). Ben married October '06 .Abi has given us our first 2 grandchildren-and yes, by the same man!Our son Ben gave us a granddaughter, Penny, in Sept 07 and grandson Jack in February 09! My husband Ansel passed away in February of 2011, but the Lord united me with a wonderful Peruvian man in August of same year, Levi Utia. We tried to have a civil ceremony either here or there. But we encountered so many obstacles. I don't know if or when we'll ever be able to marry, but for now Jesus Christ is uniting us.

Other Information:
I've made 10 mission trips to Peru, and will gladly explain how I became involved to anyone who has ears to hear! I have "second homes" in Pucallpa, Lima, Chiclayo, and Iquitos (just wish I could go more often) and I have cultivated some very close friendships there.
Anyone interested in seeing photos and videos from my trip in June-July 07 and to Machu Picchu in Feb of 07 can see them at the Photobucket.com album under mumz2you . I have two blogs - the bilingual : http://hermana-shelley.blogspot.com/ and my 'Perunews" http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/ where I have blogged about my most recent trip - complete with photos. Stop by and read all about it! I will try to update the photos in my gallery, so stop by again!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. Every time I blog, I am bravely letting a small piece of myself get "out there." Nice to know some people can connect with what I feel.

Hi! Just wanted to thank you for commenting on my blog today about feeling better. When I was in the wheelchair SP didn't have any chair vids and I kept after them and they finally got them! I still do them just to be sure they get play, plus they are good! jessicasmithtv.com has a few good chair workouts too. I wish you well with your hip surgery and getting below 200! I know you can do it! Take care and keep Sparking!! ~~Melissa
