Ahhh, Summer!!

I'm Midgie. I'm 51 years old, and have been married 30 of them. I'm Mom to 2 grown sons, 29 & 26 years old - and ecstatic Grandma to 2 Granddaughters, ages 9 & 8 - and a 6 year old Grandson. Oh, and we dare not forget Their Majesties - Sammy, our bossy big kitten and his little sister, Katie! (Rico, my Beloved Tabby, crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2013.) They keep me busy!

As of February 18, 2013, I had lumbar surgery - which derailed my activity somewhat for a bit, but gave me the feeling back in my left leg!

If stress burned calories, after the last few years I'd be Twiggy! Alas, not. Did I mention I tend to be an emotional eater? Yeah. So, one of my biggest goals for this year - and always - is actually casting my burdens on My Lord instead of just talking about it! Anyone else out there with me?

Hooray for Sparks - and especially all my Sparkfriends who have hung with me through the nearly 5 years I've been here!! And big welcoming hugs to all the new friends I hope I'm going to make!

My Program:
The Weight Loss has really been kicking in, between the support I get here and at TOPS. I found out I was gluten Intolerant in August 2012; and going gluten-free has helped a lot - taking down the bloating, etc. I just had back surgery (02/18/13), which will really help my activity level once I recover, now that I no longer have a numb left leg!

Personal Information:
I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan with my husband of 30 years. We have two sons, who are 28 & 26; and 3 beautiful grandchildren (2 girls and a boy) who are 9, 8, and 6 and a half. I'm very blessed.... God has given me lots of reasons to want to live healthier & longer!

Friendship Duet

We meet new people every day;
Why we like some, who can say?
Maybe it's because they think like us;
It might be because they seldom fuss.

It's hard to know why closeness grows;
We like some better; that's how it goes.
I think you're special; Iím glad we met;
Let's keep having fun in our friendship duet.

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs
