I have been fighting my weight since I was 5 years old. Now as I enter the second half of this life I want to finally win this battle, so I can enjoy myself more as my husband and I enter into retirement. We want to do more traveling and just enjoying life while we can. When I started with Spark I just wanted to lose weight but now that I am halfway to my weight loss goal I am finding out I want more than that. I enjoy exercising, walking in particular and will be doing at least 1 5K this year and who knows where that will lead maybe even longer distances. I have found that when I eat healthy food I feel better and have more energy. "We'll never know whether something new and wonderful is possible unless we try." Douglas Brinkley

My Goals:
I want to finally get this weight off yet again and keep it off for good. I'm tired of fighting it and doing the yoyo thing. I joined SP May 2009, but didn't really get started seriously until late September.

My Program:
I plan to go slow and steady like the tortoise. Eating less, excersing more, and drinking more water and tea.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live out in the country on 20 acres in NW Missouri close to Smithville Lake with our female lab/pointer mix pup(12 years old but I still call her a pup) named Sadie. We are winter snowbirds that spend 3 months at Powell Park Marina on Lake Sam Rayburn in East Texas fishing.

I still work part-time when we are home.

I like to knit, crochet, and do decorative painting.

Other Information:
We love to travel in our 5th wheel and have taken some wonderful trips and had some great adventures during our 28 years of marriage. And yes our dog goes everywhere with us.

    Mornin' PJ! Yes, I do enjoy doing the diamond art. It helps me decompress and I'm occupied so I don't want to snack in the evenings! That's a win-win to me! LOL!!

    I wasn't too thrilled with these smaller ones to start with; the "beads" are square and honestly, I'm not finding the quality of the product as good as the other company's product (the sticky base isn't as secure to the canvas like the other company's), but ya can't say the pics aren't pretty! Wow! I'm going to check the other company (round beads) and see if they don't have the bleeding heart picture offered by this company...it's absolutely gorgeous...and if it looks like the cat when it's done, it will be fantastic! Lots of vibrant colors in that one!

    How have things been going? Hope things are well. Did you have severe weather? My sister said there was a lot around her but they didn't get anything serious. Saw a lady was struck by lightning in Smithville. Good heavens!

    Have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon

    I found kits at Hobby Lobby...got a pink flamingo one...it was 40% off so I got it for $8.99 They had some at Walmart, but there wasn't anything I would want to do. It looks like it will go quickly. You can get them on line and even have your pictures made into canvases, too! Not sure how much that costs. I'll let you know! The one I saw was gorgeous!! It was a winter scene with snowmen...very bright and sparkly!! emoticon It was definitely eye-catching!
