Apparently I first tried Spark People back in 2013. Obviously I did not do much. I used to spend most of my time in the Spark Recipes which is not a bad thing. I made many of the delicious meals for myself and my husband. I was loosing weight until I had a hernia repair. My exercise consisted of my job. I was a computer tech for University Hospitals of Cleveland. I was the sole tech for Seidman Cancer center and 7 other buildings on the campus. Talk about a lot of walking !! The weight stated to come off again.....then 2015 came about and so did my broken hip. I could not do any weight bearing for 3 months. Since I was not cleared for work, I stayed at home in my recliner reading a copious amounts of library books. Once back to work I was not able to get the weight off. I am a severe asthmatic and have degenerative osteoarthritis in my lower spine. So, for now my exercise is walking.
I have had three careers in my life, 22 years of being a Registered Nurse in Critical Care Units, 10 years in retail, and 6 years as a computer tech.
I am married 13 years to my current husband. I have three grown children and my husband has a grown son, Together we have 4 grandchildren with one on the way.

All is not lost that I lost my Silver Sneakers at the beginning of the year. I did some research. Found that the Y would cost me $22.00/month. Ha....not in my budget. So, I went to my community senior center. I joined for $5.00/year. I get to do free exercise classes three days a week and Senior Zumba one day a week. In addition, I get to use the exercise room for free. I'm loving it !!!!

    It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens. That's how change occurs Jillian Michaels
