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.

I live very near Indianapolis, IN and loved the very moderate summer we had. My garden is beautiful. Thank you for planting it for me, friend. Lots of people are enjoying it.

Beginning the transition to fall a little early this year. But the weather is beautiful. I'm going to enjoy as much of it as I can.

Healthy Mind Healthy Body

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

To keep the body in good health is a duty...
otherwise we shall not be able
to keep our mind strong and clear.
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed,
easy to get into, but hard to get out of.
The secret of health for both mind and body
is not to mourn for the past,
nor to worry about the future,
but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Healthy choices thread through every aspect of life.
Watch what you eat -
Your body becomes what you eat.
Watch what you think -
Your mind becomes what you think.
have a wonderful weekend.

"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."
--William E. Holler

"Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."
