I am a southern California woman. The emphasis of my life is my family, friends, church, and neighbors. I work as an office manager and taking care of my home, dog and garden. I'm committed to finally taking off the weight that keeps me from being what I believe is my healthiest weight. It will be a lifetime of discipline to maintain that weight, but I prefer that to the alternative....pain pills for aging & joint problems along with energy depletion.

I met my goal at the end ...
I am a southern California woman. The emphasis of my life is my family, friends, church, and neighbors. I work as an office manager and taking care of my home, dog and garden. I'm committed to finally taking off the weight that keeps me from being what I believe is my healthiest weight. It will be a lifetime of discipline to maintain that weight, but I prefer that to the alternative....pain pills for aging & joint problems along with energy depletion.

I met my goal at the end of September 2011 and have been able to keep the weight off (and then some) despite my inability to exercise as regularly as I would like to. I am prone to a pinched nerve in my neck and over the last 1-1/2 years dealing with the fall-out of that reality has kept me busy trying to overcome the injury (ies) and figure out ways to stay fit without causing problems. Checking in with SparkPeople has helped me to stay faithful & focused.

I discovered that stress keeps my weight low, but when life is not stressful it is more challenging to be what I now understand to be my best weight, 132. I am happy that SparkPeople is a part of my life...an important part in managing this reality.

My Goals:
I haven't been 135 in 10 years. I don't know if it is reasonable at this point...but I want to try.

11/2012: I have been able to maintain my weight loss, and indeed weigh in under 135. I'm happy about that, since this was my natural weight during my late teens, early 20's. Seems right and healthy.

7/2013: I have determined that 132 should be the weight I maintain through proper diet and exercise. I will do my best to live in that knowledge.

My Program:
I track my food...almost all of which is homemade. My husband and I both love to cook. My daughter and her husband are also excellent in the kitchen. So in general, I eat real food, no substitutes of any type and just try to watch the quantities. I aim to work out at the gym 4 times/week...but fatigue or joint problems sometimes interfere.

Personal Information:
I have been with my husband since my senior year of high school. We have a daughter (married) and 2 sons. Our family was blessed with our granddaughter in May 2010.

Other Information:
My father died relatively young, but we were buddies from my earliest memories. He always told me "everything in moderation" and "too much of anything isn't good for you". It's advice that has always made sense to me and wisdom I try to apply.

I'm sending you back good wishes and blessings. How is your summer going?

The background on my page is actually at my favorite aunt's home in Lincoln outside Sacramento. I visit her 3-4 times a year. She's a wonderful mom figure. I treasure her support and love.

Thank you for checking in. Hug!

Oh I have two urgent prayer requests of people I know personally also.
Sometimes I tend to feel sorry for myself as I am almost shut in because of different ailments but am 86.
I have a friend who is 50 and has cancer of the breast and spine. She has been at the cancer center since Easter and radiation isn't doing her any good. They are seeing what they will do next.
She has a 13 year old son.
Then my pastor in Kansas City (he passed away years ago) and the church who ordained me and sent me to the mission field has an only daughter who is about 9 years younger than I and has kidney failure. I have heard she refuses dialysis and the reports are not good
I hope you are getting good reports from your son. Keep looking up to the ONE

Just prayed and am still crying. It really touched my heart. We loose the bonds of satan and command deliverance in this young man in Jesus name.
