Eleven years of living a more healthy lifestyle through Sparkpeople and I am still learning and absorbing changes with each new day. The weight is at a standstill but my body is feeling so much more healthy with better nutrition and increased activity, which seems to amaze my doctors.

I am a 71 year old baby boomer born, raised, and currently living in the "Show-Me State of Missouri", after a twenty year journey as a military wife. I recently semi-retired from the field of rental property management by working in the office only 3 days a week.

I am a proud mother & grandmother. My daughter lives just a few miles from me, a granddaughter who is just finishing up her junior year of college. A son and his wife that reside in Arkansas along with two grandsons and a great grandson. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with us on earth but is always in our hearts.

I love motivational quotes and Sparkpeople has several that I enjoy and try to implement in my daily life.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
