Member Since: 1/7/2007

SparkPoints: 131,143

Fitness Minutes: 72,188

My Goals:
To be able to walk up stairs fast without panting. Update June 10th. 2007. I am maintaining at 190.

My Program:
To go slow and steady.

Personal Information:
In Mar. of 2006 I weighed 251. I decided it was time to quit buying larger clothes and do something. My wife was battling high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol count and borderline diabetes and she started watching her food selection and portions. I went from 251 to 237 Jan. 7th. when I found SPARKS. We live on a farm in Northern Ill. We are actively farming. As you can see from my pictures we enjoy flowers, gardening and grandkids. I'm on the LEE COUNTY board for THRIVENT doing volunteer work in the surrounding communities. Very satisfying endeavor.

Other Information:
My latest book I enjoyed was JUNE by Mary Sanders Smith. Published by LINTEL 24 Blake, Middletown, NY 10940. It's a story of summer life in the 1940's on a farm through the eyes of a young niece.

Wish that you could come down here to Avon tomorrow during our fair. Tomorrow they're having an antique tractor show. Plus they're going to have a parade of them tomorrow night around 6:30pm. Our fair has started up. You might see some old tractors out there. I know that my dad does every year.

Fantastic~ being in such good health Skeeter. I have a guest coming to visit in a week and she's in her 70's and she makes my 11 year old tired. LOL I want to be in such good health and shape when I reach my 70's. :)
It's wonderful you're still farming too. I'm thrilled to hear it. Worried about the medication you have to take though glad the doc says you're okay. Will a fourth of a pill give a fourth of a headache? emoticon Love your sense of humor. I think that gives longevity. We have to be able to laugh at life and ourselves, right?
Haven't been on FB in years and have no intention of ever going back.
