Starting over again!

Hello and welcome to my Spark page. My name is Patty and I will be 59 years old this summer. I'm a Cancerian, an animal lover and I have 2 grown children, 6 grandchildren and just welcomed my first great grandchild on 12 April 2016. I enjoy Farmer's Markets, ghost hunting shows and I do like to have a few drinks now and then.

Starting over again!

Hello and welcome to my Spark page. My name is Patty and I will be 59 years old this summer. I'm a Cancerian, an animal lover and I have 2 grown children, 6 grandchildren and just welcomed my first great grandchild on 12 April 2016. I enjoy Farmer's Markets, ghost hunting shows and I do like to have a few drinks now and then.

I first started my Spark journey back in January of 2008. I had great success using the tools and recording my progress here on Spark People as long as I didn't stay too long browsing on the site. I lost over 40 pounds and started feeling really good about myself again.

Unfortunately, I stopped going to the gym and recording calories and exercises. I gained back 15 pounds more than what I started with over the last 8 years. I am also battling high cholesterol now along with my hypothyroidism. The one bright spot in these dreadful years is that I managed to finally quit smoking in November of 2013. Yep, I finally kicked that disgusting 40 year habit!!!

I had fought with severe acid reflux disease for many years which made it almost impossible to do some of the exercises I was interested in. In May of 2015 I finally had my reflux fixed with the Nissen Fundoplication surgery because I was told that the stomach acid was getting into my lungs. I must say that I haven't had to take even 1 tums or anything since and I feel like a new woman.

Thankfully, like a true friend, Spark People is still here waiting for me and ready to help me get back on track.

We have a brand new VASA Fitness gym opening this summer not too far from me over by Centennial Park. I'm really looking forward to it. The old gym in West Valley is nothing to be proud of and I hope they will keep this new one nice.

I've always enjoyed the water and even though I'm not a strong swimmer, I do enjoy paddling around the pool and getting more exercise that way. I do a mean sidestroke. ;) I've never done a water aerobics class but I think I would like to add that as a new adventure. ;) I would also like to get back to my Zumba. It's so much fun.

I was born and raised in Utah and do believe in God but I'm not very religious. I don't go to, or belong to, any specific church at this time. I just consider myself spiritual I guess. I've been thinking that I'd like to find a nice church but there are so many different religions, how do you know which one is true?

Now that the weather is warming up I would like to get out to the parks or maybe City Creek Mall and start with a little walking to help me get out of the house (and my comfort zone) more. I've always liked Murray Park. It has lots of shade and the baby ducklings are always so much fun to watch.

Well, I guess that's about it for now. Have a fantabulous day!!! :D

Yes, it is a small world. I like the Trolley Square store because the trax stops right across the street. I was going to go last week because I need to get some new sheets but Ziggy got so sick and I didn't want to leave him.

Small world! I have worked at the Market Place on 4th and 5th off and on for the last 20 years. I was the Nutrition Manager from 1997-2005 I then took a break (we adopted or girls that year) until 2010 when I went back part time. My husband worked there (and the one in West Jordan) for 10 years but, has worked for Kellogg's for the last few years.

hey Prism! thanks so much for the goodie. I have been off for a while and just bought the spark pedometer thingy. I like it except when I have less than 500 steps to meet my goal. Then I find myself pacing in my room in order to reach that goal. lol.
