My weight has been a battle all of my adult life but now it's not just about my weight; I want to be healthy and be able to enjoy my kids and grandkids. We have a total of five kids: two boys, ages 36 and 31, and three girls, ages 28, 25, and 16. Right now, we have five grandkids, four boys (15, 12, 3, & 1) and a little girl (5 yr old). Serving a powerful and wonderful awesome God is most important in my life, and then comes taking care of my family. My Prince Charming is so supportive of me, and loves me no matter what, however, he is glad to see the weight loss so that we can have more years together. In January, we celebrated our 10th anniversary, and I told him that I want to make to at least 50 years!! To do that, we both have to hit the century mark since we were 46 when we married. I have to be healthy to get there, so onward and upward---or maybe I should say DOWNward--we go!!!

My main goal is to be healthy enough to see ALL my kids and grandkids grow up

My Program:
Continue pursuing a healthy lifestyle, including what I eat and the fitness routines that will help me get there.

If I lose weight, I will be very glad. If not, I will be fat and healthy!

I've done my first Triathlon, and I will be continuing to participate in events.

One of my "life verses": They that WAIT upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:31
Teach me, O Lord, to WAIT.

Laugh when you can..✿. Apologize when you should..✿. And let go of what you can't change... Love deeply and forgive quickly... Take chances and give your everything..✿. Life is too short to be anything but happy...✿ You have to take the good with the bad...✿ Love what you have... Always remember what you had... Forgive and forget.✿..and always remember.. that life goes on..✿ Life is too short✿

    With my 3rd sparkaversary coming up in a few weeks I thought about you. After all, you were one of the very first friends I had on SP.

    (((gentle hugs))) to a wonderful woman who helped to keep me steady in the early days.
