No, I'm not going for 90 pounds, I'm going for 90 years! I am 56 years old, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, my dr. is watching me for diabetes, & I have Multiple Sclerosis. I also have a husband that I want to grow old with, and grandchildren, nieces & nephews that I want to see grow up & start families of their own. I recently took a test at Realage.com and it pegged my age as nearly 11 years older than I really am! So....it's time for me to take charge of my health & my life so that I can go for 90...or more!

My Goals:
I want to become more healthy by eating wisely and exercising regularly. I want to lower my cholesterol and blood pressure to the point where I can stop taking medication for them.

My Program:
I have tried a few different weight management sites, but like SP the best. I am logging my foods & exercising as I can with the MS. My daughter-in-law is also getting healthy, so she & I support each other. For me, daily weigh-ins keep me on track, and weekly measuring is encouraging.

Personal Information:
I live in the Phoenix, AZ area, yes it's hot! Yes, every summer I wonder why I'm still here! I am married 24 years and have one son. We have 3 grandchildren 7, 5 & 2, and numerous nieces & nephews.

Other Information:
I enjoy creative hobbies, but don't seem to put much time into them any more. I volunteer with a nonprofit started by a friend called Room for Joy. We do dream room makeovers for children with chronic illnesses...visit the website www.roomforjoy.com to learn more!

    Thanks for your responding to my journal post after my Mom died last September. I have not been on my SP since that time but wanted you to know that I do appreciate your kindness. GAV

    Thanks for the words of support - steroids are never fun, but knowing that there are other people out there who know what it's like does a lot to keep me positive. Best of luck to you!

    Hi Vicki!
    I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. I may not post very often, but I'm trying hard to work the program. Looks like you're doing great. Keep it up! I'm with you on the health issure, I'll never be "thin", but I can be a whole lot healthier! That is basically my goal. Take care,
