Hi to all......My name is Barbara and I've had a few health setbacks that deterred me, but I am determined to make my goal!! I had a cortisone injection in my left hip on May 14 and I am still feeling pretty good...not totally 100% of no pain, but it has lessened. Losing weight, I believe, will help me get to my goal of getting rid of 20#!

I went to my orthopedic surgeon and reviewed my x-rays...again. The injection given to me on May 14 lasted about a month...and the hip pain came back with a vengence! I am now scheduled for a total hip replacement on September 24...the soonest I can get in. I cannot walk for too long, stand for any length of time...so aerobics is out for now, but come January 1, 2019, I should be in pretty good shape to get moving aerobically again!

I am including HIM in all that I say and do!! I will keep positive thoughts ONLY in my mind and speak them out loud!!


Keep it moving everyday, think positive thoughts...there's no room for beating up on your self and getting all negative either!! BELIEVE that YOU CAN DO IT!!! It really does start in your head!!

Please join me...I will encourage you...if you can take a few minutes to encourage me...we can do it together!!


Member Since: 4/1/2008

Fitness Minutes: 153,780

My Goals:
1. Exercise daily......at least 20 minutes.

2. Keep where I'm at or lose a little more....no more than 5# though!

3. Eat sitting down ONLY!

4. Talk out loud.....to myself (when I'm alone) POSITIVE WORDS ONLY.

5. Continue to remind myself that I AM WORTH IT!

6. Drinking 8 cups of water.....at least daily.

7. Keep and HONEST food journal...daily!!


My Program:
I am using an Ap on my phone...called Lose it!! You can document weight lost, set goals, enter foods eaten! Get support!! I also love getting support from Spark friends!!








Personal Information:
I am married....going on 39 years in April to a great guy, have two wonderful adult kids.

We also have a little black cat, named Bella, who is just a little joy to me.


I have had some back/calf problems since 08, had the spinal decompression, but then fell so I still am having problems, but not as severe and find Yoga and deep, slow stretches really help a lot. Also I think REMOVING the last 22# has helped, unless I overdo it with housework, bending, moving furniture!!

I firmly believe in the Lord.....He is a huge part in my life; don't know where I would be if I couldn't talk to Him daily; I really lean on Him!! He is my strength, especially in tough times!!

I teach RE (religious education)...2nd graders 1x weekly and I absolutely love the little ones; they are such little sponges!!

I am also in the Red Hat Society and was asked two years ago to join the Royal Board, which I am happy to be a part of!!


Other Information:
I love to watch romantic comedies and health shows, like the Dr. Oz show...DVR it if I can't watch it, read mostly self help books, enjoy watching/listening to Joyce Meyer......a real down to earth preacher. I usually do my step aerobics or deep stretches for my back while she is on tv.

    Harboring resentment sucks the life right out of you, it is time to release this and get on with your life. Resentment and anger are like a cancer that eats you alive. It takes the joy out of living. Marla Cilley (aka FlyLady)

    We don’t have buddies in our TOPS group. We have about twenty active members. I was our State Queen in 2000. I had lost 120 lbs. Two years ago I had three major surgeries and gained back lots of weight. I’m working to get it off again!

    Glad that the PT is on top of things. Hope all goes well! It's tough to work so hard to feel better.
