Barb's Life

Hi--I'm an empty nester whose third son married in 2012. I am still recovering from a July 2008 stroke. I started with SparkPeople in March 2012 because keeping my weight in check is very important for my health. I am looking forward to my future as I continue healing and maturing in the Lord. I believe this page will document stair steps of growth and rebuilding.

Hi--I'm an empty nester whose third son married in 2012. I am still recovering from a July 2008 stroke. I started with SparkPeople in March 2012 because keeping my weight in check is very important for my health. I am looking forward to my future as I continue healing and maturing in the Lord. I believe this page will document stair steps of growth and rebuilding.

Update June 2014: A year ago June I started writing and leading a Bible study at church on God and our beginnings and how we walk with Him. A friend and I planted a small garden by my front door for the second year this spring. It gave my neighbors and me much joy last year, and has already started to do so this year. I'm looking forward to see what this summer brings. Life continues to get more interesting as I continue to heal and yield to my Lord.

Update End of August 2014: It's been a good summer. I lost my winter weight and am now around 140 pounds. I've enjoyed outings with family and lots of morning walks. I am at the peak of my exercise cycle, and feel like I've gained back the ground I lost physically over last winter. Now looking for ways to sustain it in the upcoming months.
