Lost weight thanks to Spark People. Wish I could say that was the happy ending, but health problems and surgeries got in the way. I have since regained much of the weight I lost. Having huge challenges with my diet. Thankfully, the exercise habit that Spark People helped me make a lifestyle has remained strong. Struggling with arthritis and fibromyalgia has given me added challenges, making me realize how important physical activity is.

Fitness Minutes: 91,619

My Goals:
My current goal is to 1.continue to record my food every day,
2 drink 8C of water daily,
3 to exercise and be more active daily
4 to weigh myself regularlyl

My Program:
I take part in water aerobics 3 days a week, swim laps and walk until the weather clears for me to bike again.

Getting stronger every day!
I feel great! April '09 was the start of an incredible journey into losing the weight that was effecting my health. It's been a great journey that surprisingly enough, has shown me that I could do what I didn't believe I could! My family is proud of me and that means the world to me!

Personal Information:
I was born in Billings, Montana and have lived here my entire life. I have been married to my very supportive husband, Bob for 33 years and we have 5 children and 3 grandchildren with 3 more on the way in 2011. I am a Christian and love serving in my church. I take care of elderly and love that profession.

Other Information:
I have reset my spark page. I need to lose the weight that I regained after 5 surgeries. I regret that I was careless and regained weight while ill and recovering. I was not as active as I like to be and didn't watch my food intake. Shocking how fast the hard work of losing weight can be undone!

Thanks so much, Rita, for your prayers. They are appreciated. I was hoping to feel well enough to go to church this morning but not there yet. I am staying home and taking care of me this morning.

Have a Blessed Sunday.

Sunny

Thanks Rita for the goodie...thankfully no snow here for me so far!
My exercise minutes are purely walking these days, nothing strenuous. Yes we are living here in the UK now, almost 3 years now...times flies! The house is still for sale in Spain but so far no buyer!
Praying for you my friend for a good start to your goals in 2015. PTL...I've maintained now since Oct 2013.
Happy New Year,
Love Janet xx

Leave it up to me to make a "grand entrance" into the stadium!!!

I am less stiff today but one massive bruise. They quit counting in ER. Me too.

Take care and best wishes for a great 2015!

Hugs, Sunny
