Hi! I am paperclipsue. I have tried sparkpeople before but did not keep up with it. In the process I have gained weight!! My goal is to lose 30 pounds before I get diabetes, high blood pressure . . . I am 63 years old and have 2 grandchildren. Another goal is to run an agility course with my dog, Colman. I have been taking dog agility lessons for about a year. Love every minute of it. We have practiced up to 20 obstacles at a time. Still learning.

Member Since: 4/3/2010

Fitness Minutes: 19,442

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 36 pounds and gain energy. I want to be able to keep up with my 8 year-old twin grandchildren and my family. I also want to be able to keep up with my dog, Colman, in agility.

My Program:
I am tracking all my food and my fitness. My diet partner is Colman, my mini-poodle. Basically, I am walking and doing some strength training at home. We also have a small exercise room at our church.

Personal Information:
I retired after 34 years of teaching elementary music.

My husband and I have 3 adult sons.

My husband works on the family farm and is a musician (guitar, drums, mandolin, sings).

My oldest son sings tenor with a southern gospel quartet called "Witness".

My middle son is married and has the twin grandchildren-boy/girl.

My youngest son will be a juniorat IUPUC this fall.

I accompany our church choir, lead the praise band and I accompany our community choir.

In the summertime, I have the privilege to babysit my grandchildren. Life is good.

Other Information:
I love to read and I read: "The Spark". I found it very helpful for understanding the website and Spark plans.

I also love babysitting the grandkids, playing the piano/keyboard, scrapbooking, and playing games with my grandkids and my family. Also, I have great friends (on and off Spark People) who encourage me to keep "sparking".
I have been taking dog agility lessons for about 1 year. I LOVE IT!!!

    I keep missing your status' on here. thought maybe you were gone and was going to have to do something to get your attention. I see, now, that you posted just yesterday...and are walking. Glad to know that.

    I have started that Bible study and we are all loving it. I am finally losing my holiday weight...almost all I will be back to learning maintenance...or maybe this is what maintenance is.

    I had a cool experience today. Was starving after work out and picking up N so was going to go out to eat..and went a different way than usualy and with out thinking about it just drove into a restaurant I haven't been in in 15 years. I asked for the low cal meal section.and she pointed it out and asked me if I was trying to lose (dang..she had to ask?). Then she told me she had lost 117 pounds. WOW. I actually asked if I could give her a hug and she was thrilled. I asked her if she would like to come and tell my Bible study about it and she agreed. We exchanged names, emails and phone numbers. I feel like God led me I have invited someone to inspire my group as well as invited someone to see our church. I can't imagine what it would feel like to feel you have been a tool to bring someone to Christ. Or maybe she is Christian. Either way it was a cool experience.

    congrats on the weightloss. I found it plus several other members' lost pounds. But have a stomach bug right now, apparently, so am not eating..and if I do..I see it again. Not the way I planned Christmas.

    way to go on the weight loss. I keep showing these big losses every OTHER week. I regain it in between. Ifear this weeks will be real as I went to R's company party and then HE brought home 6 bags of homemade cookies from church. I did plate some up and take to the neighbors anyway. Exercise is still good.

    you are 2/3 of the way to you goal! Congrulations!. I am staying within my range but still not comfortable going it on my own. I am going to attend a 6 week holiday Firstplace4health bible Study starting the Wed after thanksgiving. Then I will begin leading one in January. I have been studying for it and am getting excited. It is more Bible study than weight loss and is focused on balancing life, based on scripture "worship theLord with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength" I got really nervous after gettiing all excited and asking to do this..after the leadership DVD, I am excited. (you don't have to already have arrived) I encourage you to look into for WUMC. Also a good way to bring in outsiders and non Christians for a transformation. Please pray for me in the journey.
