So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've working on eating less again , with more fruits and veggies.I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking as much as I can and getting back to tracking. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Veronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's death (12/2/2017) has added to things to adjust to. I also have been blessed with a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands.. https://www.fitbit.com/user/25V8W
Y. I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age. I retired May 25th, 2012 to be Erik's primary care person. My eldest two try to help at times. My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life. With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. I live with the adage that all is a Gift from God and try to trust Him.


Member Since: 4/9/2010

Fitness Minutes: 155,280

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.



Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.


Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog about my 1 lb weight loss. I always like to hear from you. It is amazing sometimes how even losing one pound can make me feel like I am on top of the world. I hadn't anticipated actually losing weight so I did not plan a celebration or reward. Actually, I don't usually thinking of planning a reward in general. It makes me aware that I don't often meet my daily goals. It sure felt good though to lose that pound after 9 months.

    Ginie, thank you for reading my update on my nephew and sister. I, too, hope my sister and her donor soon get everything squared away so the transplant can take place. Being on dialysis, as I remember from my mother's experience, is extremely hard, and my sister is hoping to avoid it.

    I hope you and Erik are having a good spring and that you have found a reliable helper. Take care, my dear.
