My Goals:
I want to trim up, I dont expect to look like I did 50 years ago, but, a little less flab, would be nice, I want to tone up, get muscle, and get more physically fit

My Program:
I have belonged to Sparks since January of 2009, and I am going to switch to a maintenance program, I would not mind losing a couple more pounds, but I sure do not want to gain, so from here on, I will try to maintain.

Personal Information:
My name is Mary, I live in California, and I am 68 years old, and finally met my weight goal, and along the way I have become a much healthier person, All to the good.
But I went on a cruise in August and gained back 3 pounds, so I am having a very hard time getting it off.

Other Information:
I am right now reading a book called "The Gurnsey, Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" it is great, short but great, my sister turned me onto it. Guernsey is a island betwen France and England, there are a group of them called the Channel Islands, and it was occupied by the Germans during the second World War, I am sure it is fiction, but great reading and gotta be based on facta.I love to read, almost anything, not much on watching television, but do enjoy a good movie, and the ones I get to see are on Television, I was raised on a small farm (acreage) in Iowa..

Parrotlets, or 'pocket parrots' are great little parrots to have. They have all of the personality of their large cousins, but they are not noisy and disruptive. I love all parrots, but am especially fond of the parrotlets. They are cuddly, funny, sweet little birds packed with character. Many can be good talkers. Sadly, breeders have been more interested in breeding for interesting colors and less for robustness. When I got my first parrotlet, their life expectancy was 15 - 20 years. Now, it is reported to be more like 8-10. That is so sad to me.

HI Mary !! (That was also my Moms name ! GOOD NAME !)

TY for reading my blog,,, I see at ur intro,, you wish to have self esteem,,,, maybe it's een a bit since you wrote that? Cos you sound AWESOME on my log !!! It seems like you also feel as I do,,, that you also do not care of where the scale stops,, that you just also want to be healthy. U CAN DO THIS !!! So PLZ if now,, or in the future,,, that "piece of aweful metal" starts to get ya down,, that you do as I have done,, and EMBRACE IT !!

People are like flowers,,, some are tiny and cute with being fragile,, and others are BIG HEADED flowers,, which are ALSO AS GOREOUS !! they each have their own special spots in our world of beauty. :)
