Okay so I have to do this intro a second time. The first account I had under the same name will not allow me to enter even though I have changed the password 2 times. I am determind to use Sparkpeople to get rid of this weight. I had a nasty scare in the hospital this past February when I almost died because I was not caring for myself. Well that is behind me now and I will be getting rid of this excess baggage. I have lost a lot of weight since I left the hospital (120 lbs of water and me) and I have to loose more than 100 to make me happy. I never tell anyone but at my heavest I was 424 pounds and I am so ashamed of myself for that. I am down to 318 and even though I weight less today than when I got married in 1998 I want..no have to get rid of more weight to be able to have the surgery I need to replace my knee.

Member Since: 6/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I want to be able to have surgery to replace my knee and be able to fit comfortably in an airline seat. I will set my first "good riddence" goal at 30 pounds.

My Program:
Since I am unable to walk any distance without the use of my canes I am limited in any kind of standing--walking exercised so instead I will concentrate on strengthening my body with weight lifting and toning. I will also go to the pool to do some water exercises. I am following the meal plan and cooking at home rather than eating out.

Personal Information:
I am 50 years old..the last of the baby boomers. I am married to the greatest guy in the world...and he would have to be to put up with me! We have 2 dogs..a Westie named Keswick (pronounced Kessik) and a Scottie named Tinkatoo. We live in the beautiful town of Maine, New York since 2006 and I am a transplant from Long Island. My husband moved here to America to marry me from England. I look forward to making friends on Sparkpeople.

Other Information:
My favorite things in life are my husband and dogs. Following close behind that is reading, quilting, cooking and baking. I love my flower and vegetable gardens and I love the Hummingbirds that come to visit my yard.
I enjoy long rides in the upstate hills and mountains and spottng bald eagles flying overhead. I hate housework but I absolutly love doing laundry..

    A Poem of Hope
    by Helena Fehr

    I feel the arms of God around me,
    as I lay on my bed at night.
    Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
    I'm surrounded and held tight.

    Dear Friend, Hope all is well with you and your family! So many hurting from the storms and floods! May you be blessed! Love and prayers Jenny

    May the Lord wrap you in his tender care and keep you safe. I love this passage form the Bible: Proverbs 3:5-6

    5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
