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: 37,100

Fitness Minutes: 9,790

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.

Borrowed the following from a friends page:

If God sends you down a stony path,
may he give you strong shoes.

Jesus, help my eyes to see
All the good Thou sendest me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear
Calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go
In the way that Thou wilt show.
Jesus, help my hands to do
All things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, may I helpful be,
Growing every day like Thee.
Amen.

Martha,

I appreciate your keeping up and checking in on me.

Things are a bit better, but not completely whole. My feet are starting to swell though so I will have to check this new development out. Should get results on Tues about the diverticulitis and will let you know. Just when I was doing so well with the challenge and had lost 9 pounds. It never fails does it? lol

What things are going on with you besides doing SO GREAT!!! woohoo

take care
barbara
