By learning to eat healthier, hopefully I will be healthier, and reap some of the rewards by accomplishing that. I love walking and biking. I also enjoy the outdoors, volunteering, being with family and friends, reading, doing puzzles. I am just learning to enjoy these things again after a long period of doing none of these due to health, and circumstances in my life.

Member Since: 5/3/2013

SparkPoints: 98,312

Fitness Minutes: 51,501

My Goals:
Since I've joined SP, I have been able to accomplish some of these goals that I have listed..I've lost 7 lbs., and am maintaining. I am eating so much healthier, eating some foods that I never thought I ever would. My exercise minutes has gone up, and I am really feeling so much healthier. (These were my goals when I joined SP.... to lose 7 lbs., learn healthier eating, build walking to 10,000 steps a day, and overall, take better care of myself, as I have learned, that no one can do it for me!!

My Program:
Walking everyday, (slowly increasing), logging into SP everyday, eating required amounts daily, daily readings, rewarding myself if I do a "good" job, organize something in my life, whether big or small, personal, or otherwise.

Personal Information:
My name is Barb. I am 63, divorced, and have no children. I am, however, a foster grandma to 125 fifth graders. This is my third year, & I have found it to be one of the best things to happen to me in a long, long time. I cannot tell you how much those kids have done for me. Compared to a few years ago, my life has turned around completely-all for the best. Meeting & becoming friends here on SP has also made a HUGE difference in my life...I never thought it was possible to have so many caring, supportive friends. Some have become like "sisters" to me..

Other Information:
I am from East Grand Forks, MN. Even though it can be "bitterly" cold in the winter, I love living here and enjoy all 4 seasons!
I love to go biking, enjoy walking, working out, being outdoors, flowers, reading, spending time with friends, volunteering, going to rummage sales & thrift stores, and I love football, and hockey, and am an avid fan of MN VIKINGS & MN WILD!!
I also love to read Mysteries (especially those in a series).

I loved the inspiration you gave out today, Barbie. The fact that I've been putting on weight has nothing to do what you do for me every day. It's not your fault, it's mine! I can't seem to get my motivation back and with putting half of my weight loss back on, it's rather scary!! I've gained 35# and I blame it on this Prednisone, but I know I could control myself if I really had the drive like I did before. I lost 67# here and plateaued and tried and tried to keep it off, and then had my bad knee get worse and ended with a totally new knee out of the deal and am so happy to be walking again and without pain and then my Rheumatoid Arth. feet hurt so bad after awhile, so walking alot goes out the window. I have my recumbent bike I could get on and I know I have to get on it, but I haven't yet and I know once I get on it for a worthwhile time, I will shake things up and make the scale go the other way again. So that's what been going on. Not the best of health and not the best at losing weight either these days. Thanks for your love always and your care over me.

ps........I just re-read what I wrote you and telling you all that actually makes me feel better. Thank you Barbie, for being my friend!! emoticon emoticon
