67 years old and at least 61 more pounds to lose ...Half our county calls me "Miss Linda" from my nursing and daycare work for 26 years retiring in 2011...Happily married for 37+ years...Have a beautiful 34 yr old daughter...Time to get healthier ! wanting to be a good example for her as well as healthy for life.
Intro to Sparks in 11/09; Health efforts escalated following two heart stentss on May 23rd. Then 5/15 I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis and told to prepare for life in wheel chair. Dec 1 2015 I had 8.5 hour spinal surgery with anesthesia problems and loss of some memory and mobility but am gradually coming back in strength, mobility and mental abilities ...will see how far this improves. Most of my efforts are in the physical mobility and strength realm [ I am walking well with 2 canes now in physical therapy], but must NOT gain weight and would like to gradually loose more with time.
With my return to Sparks I am decreasing # of teams and will also decrease some friends due to memory loss and trying to not overload the mental aspects of my day.

    Thank you for the lovely fruit arrangement (goodie) and your encouragement. I have to say I was somewhat jealous to learn of the yummy blueberries you were getting to taste. As a small child my mother used to take us 4 children out berry picking with her. I was the "cleanest picker" (OCD at even a young age haha). Enjoy the fruits of your labour. Another haha.
