After having both hips replaced in 2013, I started walking daily since my doctor said I shouldn't run. I lost the 45 extra pounds I was carrying and have continued to do cardio and/or strength-training twice a week. Now I've been on Maintenance for over a year. Logging every day is my key to keeping my weight in check.

First it was a chore to walk 50 feet with a walker...I increased it until my daughter PURPLESWIMMER asked me to join her on a 5K. She needed someone to push her ...

First it was a chore to walk 50 feet with a walker...I increased it until my daughter PURPLESWIMMER asked me to join her on a 5K. She needed someone to push her wheelchair. Now we have about six races a year, and have increased the distance gradually.

I've signed on as the Leader for two teams..the Olympia WA Spark! and Spin Me a Yarn. It's my way of giving back to SparkPeople and keeping me motivated.

I love crafts in almost any form. My newest skillset are in spinning yarn and weaving fabric.

Happy Valentines Day Patti and God Bless, hope your day is blessed!

And you enjoy the following Valentine Poem! emoticon

You Are Often In My Thoughts

Love is a command
That Christians are called to do;
Our Lord says "Love your God,
And love your neighbor, too."

Some people are easy to love;
They are human rays of sun;
They light up every life,
And encourage everyone.

You are in that group,
So I sincerely want to say:
You are often in my thoughts;
Happy Valentine's Day!
