Finally following doctor's advice...

I didn't mind being "gordita", but my doc said I should lose the weight for health. I am post menopausal, married 37 years before my husband passed away in Feb of 2011. He loved me the way I was and so do the people I've come to know and love during my mission trips. I am not trying to impress anyone, but I want to be around for my grandkids and for my extended family in Peru

SparkPoints: 116,010

Fitness Minutes: 45,942

My Goals:
To reach and stay around 180, maybe even as low as 160 if possible, SOME time within 2014. I may never be able to fit into my 40 year old wedding dress, but I can at least hope to be fit and healthy for my remaining years of service.

My Program:
My daughter, Abi, and I are in this together, by changing our eating habits and developing an exercise habit.

Personal Information:
I was born in Texas, but I''ve lived in Rochester most of my life. I became a Christian my senior year of high school (Spencerport class of ''71) and met Ansel at an Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship retreat during my 2nd year at SUNY at New Paltz. We married less than a year later (Oct 27, ''73) and after losing our first child went on to have 3 others - Abi (12 -77) Ben (8-83) and Cassie (10-86). Ben married October '06 .Abi has given us our first 2 grandchildren-and yes, by the same man!Our son Ben gave us a granddaughter, Penny, in Sept 07 and grandson Jack in February 09! My husband Ansel passed away in February of 2011, but the Lord united me with a wonderful Peruvian man in August of same year, Levi Utia. We tried to have a civil ceremony either here or there. But we encountered so many obstacles. I don't know if or when we'll ever be able to marry, but for now Jesus Christ is uniting us.

Other Information:
I've made 10 mission trips to Peru, and will gladly explain how I became involved to anyone who has ears to hear! I have "second homes" in Pucallpa, Lima, Chiclayo, and Iquitos (just wish I could go more often) and I have cultivated some very close friendships there.
Anyone interested in seeing photos and videos from my trip in June-July 07 and to Machu Picchu in Feb of 07 can see them at the Photobucket.com album under mumz2you . I have two blogs - the bilingual : http://hermana-shelley.blogspot.com/ and my 'Perunews" http://shelley-perunews.blogspot.com/ where I have blogged about my most recent trip - complete with photos. Stop by and read all about it! I will try to update the photos in my gallery, so stop by again!

We had snow flurries and are to get snow showers on Wednesday. I have only been to Sears looking for boots. We are supposed to have a couple of warmer days and maybe I can get out to shop.

Today I got my diabetic testing strips and lancets to last me through hubby's time off from work.

Our son is spending the night to give water to the DISH network guy to set the concrete for the pole the dish sets on. A worker is supposed to come here tomorrow. It was 13 degrees last night and we need to get this completed before the ground freezes.

Golden Corral had their veterans' meal on Monday night. We went there and hubby was talking to a man he used to work with at the prison. The hostess asked if we would mind sitting at the same table. I got to meet this man and his wife and we had an enjoyable meal together and hubby got to talk to someone he knew about that job.

Everything was free and I didn't have to cook or clean up. It can't get any better than that, lol!

We have always worked together to get whatever work done that needs to be done so we have free time to do things together.

When the kids were babies, he would change diapers, burp them, help with their bathing, whatever needed to be done and most of the time, he didn't need to be asked to help. My kids hated to do chores when they were young, but we all contributed to blessing the family by making the household run smoothly. Both grew up into adults that keep neat houses and that can cook and help others.

As my husband and I age, we are encountering health problems that cause us not to be able to stay on top of what needs done. We both realize that helping each other is essential to maintaining the house and property.

I still have a lot of high glucose readings, but I try to eat more vegetables and less starches to get the numbers lower.

I didn't think it was going to be good news.
