I am a healthy 67 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren ...
I am a healthy 67 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren we have. I do well getting exercise and love healthy food. Where I fall down is on sweets but this site has made me more mindful of what I eat.
I would like to get control over what I do in my life. I want to have the time to create a healthy lifestyle no matter where I am, at home, visiting or enjoying a few hrs. of social time with or without friends.
I will schedule a portion of my time to planning my food and exercise, doing the exercise and preparing the food while leaving enough time for optional things. This will take a lot of pre preparing while in Canada as we live far from the grocery store.
My name is Gina and I live part of the yr. in northern Canada and part in La Paz , Baha Sur, Mexico. I am married to Charlie and have 2 dogs Chica (poodle cross) and Otto, a Rottweiler cross. I will turn 66 this yr. and have 7 children and 10 grandchildren.
My favorite books are A Tale of Two Cities and The trilogy Lord of the Rings. Mostly I love my Faith and will do anything to further it. Being a Bahai is the best thing to ever happen to me and I have such great expectations of humanity. While all the old guard is slowly disintegrating a new world is rising and it will be so much better. To me Spark is part of the new system which is all about truth and reality.
The doctor seems to think because Bob is over 300 lbs, then by cutting his calories down to 1200 a day as well as sodium down to 2000 grams, then he should be averaging at least a pound a day. Since he lost 10 lbs of that while in the hospital, he's actually only lost 11 pounds in 3 weeks. But that's still almost 4 lbs a week. I'm very proud of his progress even though he still feels I'm trying to starve him to death. Believe me, he's far from starving.
Thanks so much for the goodie, and for caring. I strongly believe it's not being on my abilify for a couple of months, not my fault that I wasn't on, it's a long story. But I'm back on now, and I'm doing a lot better. I will never not stop taking my meds. Also the fall that I had did a lot of physical & mental to my body. I'm doing the best I can, God willing. Well, I get tired of talking about me. How are you doing Gina today? You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks so much for being so supportive, your a great friend.
Oh for sure check where you purchased it! 6 mo. is too short a time for probs. Glad you had help. This will sound weird but I LOVE doing dishes by hand and always volunteer at gatherings. I find it relaxing for some reason! It's still nice to have a D/W though esp. to hide the onesies and twosies throughout the day. Hope you have a good week. You're doing great on your weight loss- you are getting there! Good job!!
