YES, I am a 50+ PISTOL of a woman! Actually, Pistol was my nickname while growing up. It was a name of endearment given to me by my father (R.I.P.). I try to use it as a part of a Username, etc., as a remembrance of him. My first name is Sharon, or Shar, for short; hence Sharpistol! Thank you for allowing me to become a member of your South Suburbs - Fan the Spark Team. GO SOUTH SUBURBS! lol I hope to share, and learn a lot, from all of you; plus, of course, to get fit, healthy, and stay this way, for the years forward. My youngest daughter went to College, in 2007; and just graduated May, 2007. However, she left, permanent like, in August, 2011, because she was offered a job, in the city, and State, that she has attended College! She, now, is a working adult, renting her own apartment, bought a car, has her own dog, etc. *sniff, sniff* My oldest daughter had moved back in, temporarily; however, she has, now, left in March 2012, because she had enlisted in the Air Force (against my wishes). Therefore, I am now living alone. Well, my buddy, and sidekick, Nigel, lives with me. However, he can listen to me; but he can't talk back. Sometimes, he will bark, as if he know what I am saying. I have been suffering, and conquering health problems (explained on my SparkPage - don't want to write all that, again), since 2000.
My mom is 76 years old, and still is going strong, bowling, sewing, crafting, go to Church, etc. I hope to make it this far; and further, of course; and be as active as she is. This is a woman who has had 2 bouts with Breast Cancer, also! She, also, resides in another State. I want to show people; especially, the younger generation, that I am 50+ years young; and still can kick butt, in activities, strength games, etc. lol TKO!
I just joined SparkPeople, on May 8, 2012, already lost 7 pounds; and am looking forward to reaching all of my goals!
