Looking to the Future

I am a busy wife and mother of three, two of them grown, one almost grown. I am also a caregiver to my parents.

One of the greatest things in life is being functional and healthy in old age. That is my ultimate goal in joining Spark People. I have really appreciated all the support from everyone. If you need support, you can count on me.

A big surprise is finding that I don't know myself as well as I thought. This is positive because what I have learned has gotten me farther down the road to health and fitness.

Thanks for the blog comment and congratulations, emoticon things seem to be going very well at the moment, not only diet wise but health wise too...should have whispered that really...lol...don't need anything else to come down and get me!! emoticon

I decided when I joined to do the ten pound thing.
Over the years I've had a Garth Brooks country music tape, a lobster x2, a pair of flip-flops, a butterfly brooch, a bottle of nail varnish, an Ella Wheeler Wilcox book of poems, a stainless steel gardening trowel, a broken down dolls house and now the miniature sewing machine.
I did put a few pounds back on when I was ill but I'm going good again now and like I said it doesn't have to be much but it's a nice incentive to keep going and it works! emoticon

Glad you stopped by, I did see your pictures, but missed so many beautiful ones. You have so many of the flowers I love, your yard is a paradise, I know when the snow is all gone.
Guess what I found today? Was rainy here today and I was out with Patty and in my husbands Redwood is a hummer on her nest, I was so excited to see. Strange though, she is at the bottom of the tree, sure hope she is safe there, I saw her egg too. emoticon emoticon

I wish that chocolate not agreeing with me was enough to stop me from eating it. Unfortunately the side effects come a bit AFTER I eat it, and then I just beat myself up and ask why I keep doing it! Indigestion, headaches, sometimes itching skin. You'd think I'd know better by now.
