Enter some information to describe yourself here.

I am a 64 year old woman who has recently lost 90 pounds, with another 50 to my goal weight. I have gone from a size 28 to a size 18-20 since the middle of October last year.
I don't have any pictures here but hope to soon.

Other than that, I am happily married to a wonderful, loving and supportive man who I forget to tell him how I feel about him!

Other than that, I am happily married to a wonderful, loving and supportive man who I forget to tell him how I feel about him!

We also have two daughters, one who lives in Seattle, the younger
daughter still lives at home with us. They are both beautiful girls who are seeking to find their own way!

We live in Issaquah, WA, with a background of the mountains and still a little country flavor, despite rapid development all around us!

I love having so many places nearby to go to, the mountains, the Puget Sound, and one of my very favorite places, the Oregon beaches!

Let's see, what else would you like to know about me. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Fine Arts which I seldom use, pity!

My next profession was to become an Occupational Therapist, but unfortunately, I never completed the program. My next profession, my longest was working for the Boeing Aerospace Company for 13 years.

My next profession was to become an Alcohol/Drug Counselor and then I took the state boards and became after a lot of study, a CDP
or Chemical Dependency Professional. I am still a CDP with a license that is, Active Retired, now. I'm not sure that I will return to that field, it is pretty competitive and very stressful. I had a major heart incident in October, which may prevent me from working as a CDP again!

Right now I am working as an independent Provider, Home Health Aide for our disabled daughter and that's fine for now!

Happy Valentines Day SparkFriends and those I haven't met yet!
I look forward to great results while sharing about me and what's happening in my life and with my weight loss journey!

It Works if You Work it !!!!

Well Hello to you too, Ali! I loved that you wrote me via SPmail and I added you, so here we are, friends!! I'd love to get to know you better! I grew up in Seattle, was born in 1958, which the 58 stands for! I've lived here in MN for over 30 years now, with being married to my best friend! We try to get back to Seattle as much as possible. I miss it so much, more than not! We dairy farm and have a good life. We have two grown children. Our daughter is married and lives in WY. Our son farms full-time with us. We adopted them both from India. One of the best things we've ever done! As far as teams that I'm on......mainly ones that have to do with low carb, which I've been trying to do mostly. Rheumatoid Arthritis team because I've had that since 2008. Relighting The Spark is another team because of my struggle with keeping the weight off and losing more!! I'll have to look more on your page and read your blogs too. So it must be hot in Seattle. That can be so miserable with the humidity! Ugh, we sure have it here with all the lakes! Thank goodness for a/c! Yes, let's keep in touch! Hugs, Karen

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. ~Attributed to Carl Bard

Thank you for the comment on my status and adding me as a friend!

If you are hurt in a way that won't let you exercise, then don't exercise! There's nothing to feel guilty about. Just do what the physical therapist says and increase your activity as you are given clearance. Right now it's about healing!
