I have a year old grandson. I would like to be around for his wedding as well as all my granddaughters.
To travel more easily and sight see without being winded.
Walk down stairs without feeling as if I will fall. My legs are stiff! (I have improved in this! 11/2/09)
My yard is getting a make over as I am using it for my excercise.
I have lived on Guam and in Micronesia since August '64! I love the warm tropics and have enjoyed visiting family and friends in the states in the summer since my youngest son became a flight attendent with Continental Micronesia! I now have six grand daughters, one grand son and a great grand child! They light up my life.
I am learning to do things with my computer since I joined Sparks. It has been fun!
Hi Jane, I am so glad you have fond memories of Oregon! I love it here, I live in Bend (high desert country), but I have also lived in Portland, Eugene, and Ashland at various times. How did you end up in Guam? Cordially, Alison
Jane, Sorry for the mix up. I only had the dates wrong. First one should have been 02/07 and second 02/08. I went in and edited my post. I got interrupted when I was posting yesterday. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Feb The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it back but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!
