I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I'm now a Master Gardener, and live on a wooded two acre property, with loads of places for improvement. Trying to get better at planning: my meals, my garden, and my time.

Member Since: 3/24/2010

My Goals:
To feel fit and healthy, and physically vital.

My Program:
Eating less desserts and more real food; eliminating processed foods.

Personal Information:
Born during WWII in a "Maternal Nursing Home" (an adjunct to the local hospital) in North Platte Nebraska, lived in several big cities ever since: San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. Moved from Dallas to Missouri in summer of 2014. Love growing herbs, singing, quilting, and crazy quilting. Grandmother of seven. Trying to increase my dependence on God, and to quit thinking I have all the answers.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader. I read every day, and am currently also reading the Bible every morning, with a schedule to finish it in one year. This is the sixth or seventh time I've read on this schedule, and learn new things every time. It helps center me for the day's activities.

    Hi, You left a comment on my Spark Page and I thought to keep in touch. Glad you have joined SP as it is a really good place to help you lose your weight and get fit. I have had an easier time losing my weight and getting fit with SP then anything else I have tried and believe me I have tried many. All the articles and blogs keep you informed and inspired and the people are a great help, too. All of us over 60's people need to band together and know that we are able to do this and feel much better and have so much more energy. I pray you feel better soon and can get back to your exercising. Do trust in God as He is always there for all of us and wants only the very best in all things for us. God bless! emoticon
