ABC or An Alphabet Full of Facts About Me

Thursday, January 23, 2014

I saw this on a spark friends blog and thought it was a great way to get to know more about her. And she challenged her friends to share about themselves, so here is a bit about me!

A is for Age: 60

B is for Booze: Chocolate Raspberry Port
C is for Car: Chevy Malibu

D is for Dad's name: Scotty – he died 51/2 years ago at the good old age of 94

E is for Ego: More egotistical that I would like to admit. I would love the world to revolve around me, but I do have a grasp of reality, and know that I am only a little minion in the big scheme of things.

F is for Favorite song or music: Old time rock and roll with a little classic country thrown in.

G is for Goof off thing to do: Suduko and some computer games

H is for Hometown: Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

I is for IQ: Unknown – but I am sure I have one!

J is for Jam or Jelly you like: Homemade raspberry jam

K is for Kids: None – but I do have 2 furry ones (cats)

L is for Living arrangement: 3 bedroom home which I share with my 93 year old Mother

M is for Mom's name: Florence

N is for Name of best friend: Linda

O is for Observations: My sisters always say I go around with blinders on – so I am not very observant. But I do like to people watch and try to image what kind of people they are by their behaviour.

P is for Phobias: Flying insects like bees and moths.

Q is for Quote you like: “My life is but to serve and annoy – I am very good at the annoy part!!”

R is for Relationship: Single

S is for Siblings: 3 – 2 sisters, one older, one younger, and an older brother who passed away in 2012.

T is for Talent: Making people laugh

U is for Unique trait: Am very intuitive, sometimes I just know things.

V is for vegetable you love: Brussel sprouts

W is for Worst traits: Sometimes I am too guarded and am reluctant to share about myself.

X- is for X-rays you've had: Several – maybe a dozen or so, but have given thousands, if not tens of thousands (I was an X-ray Tech for over 30 years)

Y is for Yummy food you make: Chocolate Fudge No Bake Cookies

Z is for Zodiac sign: Capricorn

So now its YOUR turn! Post this! I want to read more and know more about you!

    Hi Jineane, Great Blog & a good idea. I love reading more about you & it does help me know a little more about you. I haven't posted a blog in over 2 years so my friends would be shocked. Well see as I have to think about this. How is your knee doing these days? Are you glad you had your knee replaced? Are you able to walk and get around well now? Do you use a cane? Sorry to ask so many questions but I've been accused of being the curious type. . .Take Care of Yourself.

Love,

Jill

    Thanks for sharing. I'm just in the process of updating my Spark Page and believe I'll borrow that poster. I think I need to revamp my Spark page with updated goals and refocus on this journey. I've been bouncing around over the summer and lacking the discipline I need to be consistent. Time to set one determined foot in front of the other and get back to a loosing trend.
So glad to read about your continued successes: steady losses, enjoyment of exercise, and a personal training session. You rock, Jineanne.

Update

Monday, July 15, 2013

Well I got my photos back that I had taken to mark reaching my 2nd 10% goal. I said I would share it so here it is....as well as my start photo (March 2009) and my 1st 10% goal photo (Sept 2012).


June 28/2013 - My 2nd 10% goal photo (60 lbs lost)



Sept. 2012 - My 1st 10% goal photo (32 lbs lost)


My start photo - March 2009 (@ 322 lbs)

I must confess that when I started my journey I never really believed or imagine that I would ever loss any significant weight, let alone 60 pounds. If not for the grace of God, the support and encouragement of my spark friends like YOU, and for Spark People tools and program, I would not be where I am today. Now I am looking forward to my 3rd 10% goal!

I am going to emoticon ....what about YOU!

    What an inspiration you are. What a motivation for those like me who are stuck to get into action and follow in your footsteps.

You have a beautiful smile and the camera loves you. You take wonderful photos. I love that red top you are wearing after the first 10% release.
