I dream of Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair

My name is Jean and I am 68 years young. Even though I have lung cancer and maybe I should say because of lung cancer I try to live each day as if happiness consists of living each day as if it were the first day of my honeymoon and the last day of my vacation.

I live in the foothills of NC. I keep my SP page up to date and would love to have you stop by!

My Goals:
I joined Sparks in March 2010 to finish my weight loss program. I have hit my goal of 121 lbs (original starting weight 183 lbs.)! and have been in the SP maintenance mode of 101 weeks now.

Beginning in 2012 when I retired I began regularly using SP the way it was intended to benefit the "total" me. Up to that time my schedule permitted me to use the Nutrition Tracker and the SP information that is available to Another function of SP for me is to make sure that I am getting my nutrients to assure that I can help my oncologist. He loves when I can hand him a print out of my daily sodium intake every 3 weeks!

My Program:
My maintenance program is working as far as diet goes! But as a result of lifestyle changes due to cancer I now have somewhat of limited tools available so I make sure that I use each one to the fullest extent daily! I use an Activcycle and walk as much as I can.

Personal Information:
Born in Aitkin MN, I grew up in NC, moved my dairy herd to WI in 1993 and came back to NC in 2013 as that is where all of my family is.

Until March of 2012 I was a dairy farmer. Now I am retired!

Other Information:
I love to read and Santa gave me a new NOOK for Christmas so am really enjoying! Although I am beginning to understand that technology may be evolving faster than I am! I miss turning pages....

I should thank Sparks because Recipes are one of my favorites. I live in a strange "cooking world" as my husband has Celiac Disease and I am a vegetarian. The recipe calculator has really been a tool for me to survive!
