Mission Possible: Reclaimed Health

I'm Missy, a 53 year old mother of four, grandmother of a beautiful three year old little boy and three month old little girl, with one kid still at home (my baby, Melanie, 14). I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who cheers me on in all I do. He's CaptainCookie here on SP. I'm from New Orleans and now live just northwest of the city. A common greeting here is, "Where ya at?" Native New Orleanians are often, therefore, called Yats. I usually use the nickname NOLady, for New Orleans ...
I'm Missy, a 53 year old mother of four, grandmother of a beautiful three year old little boy and three month old little girl, with one kid still at home (my baby, Melanie, 14). I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who cheers me on in all I do. He's CaptainCookie here on SP. I'm from New Orleans and now live just northwest of the city. A common greeting here is, "Where ya at?" Native New Orleanians are often, therefore, called Yats. I usually use the nickname NOLady, for New Orleans Lady, but that conjures up all kinds of questions. lol I have worked at home for over 20 years as a transcriber for court reporters, physicians, and others. That means I've sat in front of a computer monitor for untold hours at a time and grown fatter and fatter, eventually being a slug who never moved and then a slug who COULDN'T move. At my biggest, I became insulin resistant and put an extra 100+ pounds on my already very overweight body. No more! I've lost 74 pounds so far and still have a lot yet to lose. *PHEW* That sounds impossible, doesn't it? It's not. It IS possible! I'm making baby step goals for myself, one week at a time, and so far, I'm attaining them! I'm excited about the new me emerging as the rubble of a lifetime of bad habits is cleared away. The folks here at SparkPeople have been so encouraging and compassionate, and I'm delighted to have found this place!

SparkPoints: 93,884

Fitness Minutes: 11,850

My Goals:
To become healthier and more energetic.

My Program:
My program has changed! SO much. It's all good!! Now I stay within the guidelines SP has set for my calories, carbs, fat, and protein when I can. More often than not I can't quite get all the calories or fat in, but I get close. Balance is such a wonderful world!! It's one of the finest things SP is teaching me. What hope there is!!!

I attend water aerobics three to five times a week and add a session or two of low-impact aerobics in to boost things a bit when I can.

Personal Information:
My husband (CaptainCookie here on SparkPeople) and I share our SparkExperience. When we're not here, we are enjoying FaceBook and a family oriented chat network called StarLink-IRC, which we hope will have a SparkPeople channel soon. We'll be happy to direct you there. Just ask!

~Author Unknown~


The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been identified as "Subsequential Internal Non-morality," more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some of the symptoms include :
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R. Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus , into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (BEST Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list, and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention!

- GOD

Hope all is well and that you are making time to take care of yourself while you are away. May you float gently on a cushion of God's grace until it brings you back to the pages of SP.

Blessings,
