Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

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.
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.

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.

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.

Ginie, thank you for your thoughtful response to my blog about trying to take care of my old-model body. I had had a few bad days and was feeling really down and tired of the struggle, but writing about it helped. I can see that you've had the same thoughts as I've had, and I like the way you expressed them. How I eat (and sleep) affects my mood so CLEARLY! I'm always disappointed after stress-eating, but I'm so much more self-forgiving than I used to be!

Have a great evening and a wonderful Wednesday tomorrow!

Hi Ginie, Thank you for the spark goodie and lovely note. I'm so happy we are friends.
I hope you're not getting snowed in. It is suppose to start here this afternoon. I hope it's not to much.
I hope you have a great week and things calm down for you soon.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My Dad and Step Mom have been married 48 years now. They each lost their first spouse. When they married and combined families, they were parenting six teenagers. We all survived.

En fait, ce que je voulais dire, c'est que lorsque les restaurants ont un menu enfant (ce qui est rare), ce dernier est strictement réservé aux enfants. On ne peut pas en tant qu'adulte demander une portion plus petite et payer moins. :(

La Sardine ne vent pas de poissons frais, seulement quelques poissons fumés dans un petit frigidaire. Tout le reste, ce sont des produits en rapport avec le poisson mais en boîte (thon, maquereau, sardine, etc.). Il y a aussi des chocolats ou de la décoration en forme de poissons.
