My lonesome little slice of heaven

This is a photo of my sister and me on the swing she got for me. I am in the brown.

This is my hubby with our toy. This is also at the resort, which we usually call, The Lake.

I am a widow, mother of 3 (2b,1g), step-mother to 3 (2g,1b). I have 4 granddaughters and a step-grandson in Pa. I have 4 grandsons here, along with 3 more step-grandchildren here 2g,1b. I also have one grandson who passed away at 3 months of age in Feb 1992. Losing a child or grandchild is the worst loss of all.
I love all of my kids and grandkids, but don't get to see them as often as I would like.

I joined TOPS MI 433 (Eaton Rapids) in 2008 around Sept. 23 and I have lost close to 30 lbs so far, I still have more lbs to go to reach my goal. I would accept some encouraging words and HELP as I have reached a plateau!!! Sidenote: Since I hurt myself on the Wii in 2010 I have gained back about 16 pounds of the 30 lbs. I had lost!

GREAT NEWS!!! All 3 babies have arrived! Ryder, (step-daughter's son) arrived Sept 5th, Olivia (son's daughter) arrived Nov. 15th, and Blaine (step-granddaughter's son) arrived Jan. 4th. All babies are the cutest in the world!!!!

My sister and I are starting a new TOPS chapter in Charlotte, Michigan on Jan. 23 at AL!VE. We are hoping for a good turnout.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose weight and strengthen my back muscles, and get healthy!

My Program:
I have been very scarce here on SP. I have a lot of studying to do, so I put this part of my life off a lot. I have changed my program to the diabetic program, which I like. I can keep an eye on my glucose level. I will be glad when the diabetic menus will be available.

Personal Information:
I live in South Central Michigan. I was born in Mt. Pleasant, home of CMU and Soaring Eagle Casino. I grew up between Potterville and Grand Ledge. This is funny, before we moved down to the Lansing area, when I was really little, we lived between Mt. Pleasant and Midland; and now I am in the process of moving to my son's house, which is between two other towns!!!!

Other Information:
I have enrolled at Liberty University Online to study Religion. I am very excited to be doing this, especially since I have put off going to college for 40 years. I am looking forward to holding that Associate's degree in my hand! UPDATE: I'm now thinking about going for the Bachelor's degree, that is, if I can pass the College Math that is required!

This College Algebra is killing me! I decided to go ahead and take the three classes I need to get it out of the way and I am going nuts with it! I've gained almost half of what I had lost because of the stress, I get upset and go get food (chocolate). Next fall is the last one of the three and I hope there is nothing else that is this bad!!!!!!!!

8/24/12: I have started the last Math class, along with a Bible class, which should be called an English class, it's tearing apart and identifying verse, paragraph and phrase structure right now. I hated doing that in junior high school and here I am doing it again! I

    More coincidence -- I'll see if Mom can find a pic of her sisters. My sis has all the pics stuffed into a couple boxes and won't let me get into them. Maybe Mom can get her to look for something. I live in Tucson, AZ. One very hot place. supposed to have been 105 today, but "only" 103 when I got home about 2:30. Oh well, summer in Tucson. other places in AZ are even hotter.

    Goodness -- how coincidental - You and your sister look just like two of my Mom's sisters. When she comes in Sept will show her your picks. She'll be delighted. Hugs, Echo emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
