I am a working Grandmother. I am a Christian. I am a writer. This is what I hope will be my last try at a healthy weight. I have had several surgeries after my first Gastric Bypass and gone without eating 5 different times. And now I find myself eating constantly and my weight creeping back. But I am about to make a life style change that will keep me around to see my grandchildren grow up. Forget that! I will dance at my grandchildren's weddings! Talk about a long term goal!

My Goals:
My goal is to get to and maintain a healthy weight. I want to not only be at my grandchildren's weddings. I want to dance! 50 pounds is not enough, but it will be a good start.

My Program:
Since I had a Gastric Bypass 12 years ago and a revision 4 years ago, I have lost a lot of weight. Just about 100 lb. from the very start. I plan to go back to the post bypass rules of small portions, eating slowly, and a balanced diet. I also plan to start exercising by walking, trying out yoga and core strengthening exercises. I'm not fooling around this time!

Personal Information:
I used to say I was from South Dakota originally. But seeing as how I spent 18 years in South Dakota and 34 years in California, I guess I am really a Californian. I love the ocean and the mountains and I live right in between.

Other Information:
I have also been a Bible Believing Christian for 34 years. I came from heartbreak and hurt and God has given me life and love. He is Lord.

    I missed your birthday -- so sorry.
    I hope it was a happy one, and that the year to come brings everything you can hope for.
    We're both Leos -- with close birthdays. Mine is on the 20th (turned 53)
    I sure know what you meant about feeling too young to be this old!

    Thank you for the beautiful story of your daughter and the support. In my head I know it will be okay.

    What a Sweetie you are! Thanks so much for a really nice compliment.
    I would love to meet also -- I live in Zion, Illinois (as far north and east as you can get in the state of Illinois)
    I sometimes travel, and actually am getting to meet a long-time spark friend this coming Monday when I drive near where she lives to go camping with my Sister.
    I see that you've recently come to Spark, and wanted to tell you that you were blessed the day you found out about this site. It is amazing, has wonderful tools, and the people you find here are the best in the world. Never before or again will you find as much support and kindness from one place. And it's available 24/7
    I'm adding you as a SparkFriend so that I can swing by now and again to check on you.
    You take care, enjoy a successful day, and I'll talk to you soon.
