I spent most of 2013 in the States helping our youngest son with some of his re-entry adjustments (and my husband travelled back and forth to be with me as much as posible). In spite of some surprise, non-weight-related medical issues, I lost 50 pounds later in the year, which was something of a miracle for me! For the first time in my life, I really didn't have to count points nor calories. I found what worked, was in control of the food I bought, and just followed my routine. It was also the first time that I lost weight without a lot of extra exercise, since I was recovering from back surgery.

The hard truth is that back home in Mexico with the daily routines with my husband, I've gained about half of that back. I'm trying to figure out how to make my routine fit with what he's willing to eat and do. We have finally found an internet service that seems to be more reliable. Let's hope so!

This site remains an encouragement to help me stay on track! As missionaries to Mexico, my biggest obstacles are lack of reliable internet, support, and convenience diet foods. I love the encourgement OI get from SparkPeople. Blessings!

Fitness Minutes: 46,405

My Goals:
Reduce blood pressure
Lose weight
Increase energy
Make my honey wake up and NOTICE!!!!

My Program:
I follow the 17-day diet somewhat. That has been really difficult to do with my husband's food preferences, and I always get worn out when I try to fix everything differently for me. So now I'm trying to find a balance between the two. Spark tracker helps keep me honest. (When I can follow the 17-day plan completely, calorie count is never necessary.)

Personal Information:
I'm a wife and mother of 3 adults living in the States and grandmother of one AMAZING grandson! I'm also a small-town, Kansas farm girl who has travelled far but never lost a love for her roots and wholesome values she learned there!

Other Information:
I love to read, bird and butterfly watch, garden, and share Jesus with the precious people of the world. Teaching is my special gifting. Our God is a RESTORATION God--so amazing--so powerful! What a joy to live for Him and have some small part in His Kingdom!

New things are great - that is as long as you buy the correct size. I went shopping for clothes today too and got jeans that are too small! I am determined to fit into them this summer!! Lets just have this wedding over with. The preparations were too long emoticon

Very good! Well, not the condition, but knowing what to do with it and also gaining yourself again! It's rather funny what the body does to itself sometimes... Have a great day.
