Hi. I am a 65 year old My ultimate goal from this point is to lose to at least 130 and maybe a bit lower (I am half and inch shorter than I was in High School) . My highest weight was 227. My second goal (which is more important to me for health) is to lower my A1C to normal range which is below 5.7 See UPDATE in Jan 2018 my AIC is 5.2 which is perfectly normal.

WOO HOO had my physical. A1C is 5.2 no need for statins either. Blood Pressure 117/68. Everything is marvelous! I can't say enough about how much a regular exercise program and healthy eating improves our numbers! Thanks SparkPeople for keeping me accountable! PRAISE GOD for HIS BLESSINGS

I am "Revitalizing" my Motivation! With the strained muscle in my back I have gained back some pounds which I am now working on losing. UPDATE (Back to Atkins to break the malicious sugar craving that apparently was caused by too many starchy carbs as I "comforted myself" after pneumonia and a lower back muscle strain..... I will hopefully have a working plan already in action when the Winter 5% Weight Loss Challenge begins.. .

Fitness Minutes: 50,310

My Goals:
To be at a healthy weight (probably between 120 and 130 based on my height but more depends on my waist circumference). I plan to lose to 140 by Christmas 2018. I am an apple (for lack of a better description because it is not all in my middle, but all ABOVE the waist!). A better goal is my old 28" waist from a health standpoint.


My Program:
Eating Plan: Atkins -- strict until within 10 pounds of my goal and then find how many carbs I can eat and still lose weight. It is a work in progress.

My Exercise Plan : HIIT walking for the time being, starting Tuesday, July 10, 2018 with walking or swimming incorporated.



Personal Information:
Married 44 years in 2018 to a wonderful man. We are Christians and my faith is an important part of my life. I would not be the person I am today without Jesus and I am eternally grateful to have been born into a Christian family in a country in which I am free to worship, have my Bible, and practice my faith. I am blessed to live in a country in which our laws are based on the Word of God! We have two grown children, 6 grands and a great-grand. Love to cook. Also sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch and crafts. Read. Play piano, saxophone, and accordion. Write music, prose, and poetry. Had a very hard time when the kids left the nest. Took 13 years for me to get over it. Gained this weight when I got something called Lichen Planus (they didn't know at that time what caused it or how to treat it ) .Now I know that it was caused by an antibiotic called Cipro that I took for a bout of bronchitis and finished just weeks before the Lichen Planus started breaking out. A lot of people have it in


Other Information:
My true highest beginning weight was 227 in Feb of 2011. Somewhere I think there is a picture of me then. If I can find it, it will be my Before Picture. I did have a picture of myself eating an ice cream cone on vacation at about 215 lbs and my buttons on my blouse were about to pop. I hid that one from myself because it embarrassed me to look at it, even in private. My fasting blood sugar was 116 at my highest weight. Lost 20 pounds in 4 months by just watching myself and my portions but my blood sugar didn't change. Went on Atkins and in 3 days my fasting blood sugar was 98. I stayed on it from June 1 2011 until mid October lost 37 more for a total of 57 pounds lost but then ate a piece of birthday cake (though I didn't crave a thing) and fell way off the wagon.. Got off Atkins and gained 20 back. I have been rocking back and forth with those 20 or 30 pounds for years and now it has to stop! UPDATE! IT DID STOP! I lost 42 pounds from Jan 1 2017 to the end of Sept. and my A1C dropped

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Six Terrific Truths about Time emoticon emoticon emoticon

    First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that
    take up your time.

    Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent
    on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

    Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

    Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..
    Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

    Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We can never take back time once it is gone.

    Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world,
    so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours;
    hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

    “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines.
    She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful,
    for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved.
    She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people
    smile even if she was sad.
    No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.
    She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”

    emoticon emoticon emoticon How God Created Mother emoticon emoticon emoticon
    God took the fragrance of a flower, the majesty of a tree.
    The gentleness of morning dew, the calm of a quiet sea.
    The beauty of a twilight hour, the soul of a starry night,
    The laughter of a rippling brook, the grace of a bird in flight,
    Then God fashioned from these things, a creation like no other.
    And when his masterpiece was through, He called it simply...MOTHER
