So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've working on eating less again , with more fruits and veggies.I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking as much as I can and getting back to tracking. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Veronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's death (12/2/2017) has added to things to adjust to. I also have been blessed with a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands..
Y. I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age. I retired May 25th, 2012 to be Erik's primary care person. My eldest two try to help at times. My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life. With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. I live with the adage that all is a Gift from God and try to trust Him.

Member Since: 4/9/2010

Fitness Minutes: 129,839

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.

My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

    How are you feeling? I hope you are back to your energetic self. I am still under the weather. Day 9 and yes, I'm counting. I feel bad that I have not been down to Dad's to help in that many days but I know I have to heal myself first. I feel like I'm on the way to recovery but I know it'll still be awhile. I'm hoping right now to take one of the weekend days so my poor stepsister can get a break.

    Have a lovely day with your friend!!

    You are exactly right about when to eat the peas. They can be allowed to sprout more than some of the other greens. I really liked the radish ones we tried and I'd be interested to try broccoli and cauliflower.

    I've definitely considered putting Tony in the crate at times. Just sometimes though.
