In the Beginning....

I am new to SparkPeople. I am very excited about how this program works and hope to make some real progress on my health and weight for a change. I am 62 and have more than 62 pounds to lose!
Most of my weight I call baby fat, not from childhood but from bearing children!
I love to garden, can & preserve food, make whole grain breads, read, and scrapbook. I enjoy selling kitchen products on Ebay & Amazon and on my own website. My motto is: Homemade Made Easy

I recently changed my name on SparkPeople from MIXNMILL to tencowwoman. Here is an explaination of the name.
Tencowwoman refers to an old Polynesian legend. Johnny Lingo paid 8 cows when bargaining for his wife. Most on the island thought Mahana was not worth even one cow but Johnny recognized the true value of her. Once she was married and left the island for several months, she returned as the most beautiful woman on the island. She knew she was worth more than any other woman on that island. We all have hidden beauty within us. Let it shine! We just need someone to believe in us, especially ourselves!
My kids came up with the ten cow woman thing. I am the mother of 10 and grandmother to 27!

Member Since: 9/16/2011

SparkPoints: 3,521

Fitness Minutes: 926

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 100#. I think it will take me 2 years from start to finish, maybe 3. I plan to lose 52# in the first year by my anniversary in September.

My Program:
I started out just tracking what i was eating using SparkPeople. That has worked really well. My doctor put me on an anti-fungal diet 4 weeks ago. It has been a drastic change but one for the better. I am learning to eat to live not live to eat.

Other Information:
I love music (classical) gardening, food preservation, selling on Ebay & Amazon, traveling to visit grandchildren & family, managing a program to place French students in host homes and on farms and ranches for a month in the summer, scrapbooking, and all things artsy, crafty!

Love the 10 cow story. My hubs thinks I am 10 cows worth, it's me that seems to not believe it. Let's change that faulty thinking together. I want to know what you do on the A team! I am the captain of citys tennis A team. See you on gma and gpas soon!
