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!

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!

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!
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!
