Constant renewal...

Dec 29th was my 60th birthday~ HURRAY! LOL Before SP, I went from size 22 to size 14-16 on my own. Then crazy things happened... SP has been a godsend for more than 6 yrs now... January of 2010 I was on steroids for a bit and lost more weight (?!) but when I went OFF them--40 more pounds! And the inches came back with them! Yikes! LOL

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010 and I've been in remission for four ...

Right back where I started. I lost most of it again--and then ...colon cancer,diagnosed 4/26/2010 and I've been in remission for four years-- YAY!

But my weight?? There have been side effects... LOL

Now, I'm trying to regain strength, flexibility, energy, and overall health--instead of pounds! LOL My current challenges are a host of health issues: diabetes, neuropathy, chronic kidney disease, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, something NOT lupus, now labeled "undifferentiated connective tissue disease"... The aftermath of five other unrelated surgeries, two major vitamin deficiencies, and a new version of arthritis in 2011 and 2012... hopefully NOT previews of coming attractions! LOL

I love SP, the people, the teams, the tools-- It's SO nice to have such positive influences... Life is all about change, and I plan on making great ones with the help of SP and all my friends!... the more the merrier!
Every morning I wake up... is a GOOD DAY! LOL

SparkPoints: 101,190

Fitness Minutes: 112,967

My Goals:
I just found out my Lean body mass is:
137 pounds (?!)
I had to reset my goals! LOL Makes it easier though--now I only have to lose about 65 pounds, 5 pounds at a time! LOL
I still want:
More stamina.
More energy.
More FUN!

My Program:
I reset my ticker every year on my birthday, so I can keep track of yearly progress. I use the nutrition, fitness and other goals trackers every day, not only for better health but with unrelated goals. I find creative ways to work around my disabilities. I post online as often as possible, and TRY to stay informed. LOL

**** I PLAY! ****

Personal Information:
I am disabled and I receive government benefits... and I am finally actually DOING the things I love that I can still do, esepcially the singing!
I've had a few of my poems published, but a hard drive crash ate my first attempt at a novel...
As much as I'm able I'm using my love of set design, building, etc, to create a bright, serene environment for myself and my three kitties, Licorice, Isis and Amigo. I love the Renaissance, fantasy and sci-fi conventions; theatre and music events; reading, especially Tolkien--but several yrs ago I lost my vision for 6 wks and now have the beginning of cataracts... I can only do visually intense things in small doses... I'm SO grateful to be able to do that much! What a JOY it is to SEE! LOL
I've crewed and been IN independent films, and keep in touch with my friends in the business. And I'm studying the Korean language (aka Hangul)...keeping my, --as Poirot put it--"Leetle gray cells" alive and kicking! LOL

Other Information:
I live in Washington State, in the greater--and WETTER-- Seattle area... LOL
Our black lab mix died 06/2011, after 15 yrs... what a joy he was!
My DXH left after Thanksgiving 2012 after 22 yrs together... We're still friends but there's so much more we both want out of life. He's in TX, and we talk or text several times a week--more than when we were together! LOL ..I wish him long life and prosperity.
I have cats (1 male 1 female indoors, 1 male outdoors--pics in my gallery) The two inside were a gift from DH, and pure joy. My little friend outside... was feral in 2010; now he's my porch lap kitty--but he still spooks and runs from anyone else. He makes me feel so privileged...
Life is full of challenges, some of them fun, some not. I'm looking forward to seeing what's around the next corner!
