I am back to SP after a few years absence. It's hard to find the time to eat right, but I'm working on it.

Please read my complete profile and add me as a friend if we have something in common.

Member Since: 11/22/2015

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I'll know it when I get there, but I think I would be good losing 75 or 80 more pounds.


My Program:
I do best if I make one or two small changes at a time. I am giving up most refined sugars and spending time in the kitchen creating new healthy recipes. Over the years I find I am eating meat less often and in smaller portions. Losing weight isn't my problem, keeping it off is. This time I want to have a food plan that I can live with long term. I am a busy person but because of chronic pain and other health problems I don't exercise much at all. I need to lose more weight because I need more energy!



Personal Information:
In less than 10 weeks I will be graduating from college as a Social Service Worker... at the age of 56. Next step is distance education to earn a university degree or two. I have a supportive husband, 2 cute Westies and 2 fluffy cats. My hobbies and volunteer work includes designing and sewing for community theatre, making marionettes, sewing dog clothes, working with the poor and mentally ill, and recipe development (in particular healthy and low cost).


Other Information:
I am posting recipes and more on FB page 'Thrift & Food'.

I found my old SP profile - can't access it but I am now my own best friend "LYNNKSMITH'.

    Thank you for adding me as your SparkFriend. I've added you, too! My computer crashed last week and I just picked up my new one last night. Trying to figure this thing out tonight! I successfully made it to SparkPeople, so I'm on my way!
    Best wishes for success with all your Spark goals!

    I'll be 40 in July and have decided this decade is going to be the new 20 :) I have nieces to play with and hiking trails I want to conquer. My cousins were almost killed in a car wreck and their physical strength brought them through. Eye opening.
