Hi, I'm 64 years young, live in southern Maryland, grew up in New Bern, NC. I'm the oldest of 5 children, all my siblings are alive. My mom and dad both died from complications of diabetes. I have 2 children, 10 grand kids and 3 great grand kids who I love dearly. I am striving to get more healthy so I can be around to spend more time with them.

Member Since: 9/12/2008

SparkPoints: 32,015

Fitness Minutes: 8,183

My Goals:
My goal is to get more healthy each day, for the rest of my life.

My Program:
To meet my goal of getting more healthy, I will track my food daily, drink at least 8 glasses of water, and exercise for at least 15 minutes each day.

Personal Information:
Most of my personal information is in my introduction. I originally joined spark people in 2008 but never really used it. I just committed to using spark people in Oct of 2013 and it was one of the best decisions I've made to improve my health. Since then, I've lost 20 pounds, gotten off of cholesterol medicine, and improved my blood pressure to normal ranges.

Other Information:
I retired from the Federal gov't after 31 years in 2007 and I made a conscious decision to improve my health. All of my siblings are on blood pressure, cholesterol and/or diabetes medicine. I was never consistent in sticking to a food plan or exercising until I joined SP.
After retiring, I started my own travel business, YouNique Vacations, and a few years later started doing taxes seasonally. My life got busy again and getting healthy took a back burner. In 2013 when I had to get on cholesterol medicine, I decided I needed to get serious about getting healthy, so in Oct I recommitted to SP.
