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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!

You've had a great dog-walking streak going! If your pedometer is AWOL, have you tried the Sparkpeople mileage tracker? It's not like counting steps, but you can enter your route & get the mileage!
Google's pedometer works well too. Spark's pedometer for walk/run tracking is how I found Sparkpeople in the first place! (Never could calibrate my real pedometer all that well....)

Yes..I was thinking hatti, but Netti is also short for Jeanette.
And, as I did you, you might have read my prayer request for messengers. I have been asked and agreed to, lead the children's choir. We had 12 come to the first, last night. 4 three year olds. yikes.

The greatest love story ever told is in the Bible:
John3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in Public domain
