I've known for some time that I need to change my lifestyle as far as eating and exercising but getting motivated is another story entirely. My whole family is overweight. I live with my daughter and her family and she does all the cooking mostly because I don't want to. We're always talking about how we need to do something and then that's where it ends. Hopefully my joining this site will "spark" something here and I can in turn motivate the rest of my family.

Need to update here. If you read my blogs, you will find out I had a heart attack in April and had a cardiac cath with stents placed. It was a scary time and still is somewhat but I'm doing cardiac rehab now. Hopefully, I will continue with all the exercises and walking after the rehab is done. Before I was walking but not that regular and I never exercised. Definitely I need to get back to eating right for I had got way off track with that. I want to lose another 50 to55 lbs, soooo, here goes!

    Hi noticed you on another Spark friend site, and your name caught my attention, had a friend we called June Bug. I'm also in SC, but I'm in the upstate, Greenville. I see you like historical christian romances and crochet. Two of my favorites, not the best at crochet, only seem to be able to do granny squares right now.
    Feel free to stop by my page. Wish you continued success on your Spark journey.
    Keep Smiling
