I am a Christian and my priority is to live my life as God wants me to. When God is in control everything will work out. My family is very important to me.
I have several health issues, but choose not to let them control my life any more than necessary. I need to lose about 20 lbs to get back to a healthy weight. My highest weight was about 185 lbs. I lost the ability to walk and the lbs. packed on. With WW, lots of determination I lost 45 lbs. Since than I have really had to work on keeping it off. With thyroid issues it makes it harder, but I know it can be done.
I like getting to know people of all ages. Everyone has something to offer.
I collect cherished teddies and like teddy bears in general.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 1-2 lbs a month. It doesn't come off very fast, because of thyroid issues, but I won't give up.


My Program:
Counting calories and eating a healthy diet which for me includes a GF diet. I am working with a friend from sparks on tracking our nutrition.



Personal Information:
I am from the TX panhandle. I have 2 daughters who are married. One is a lawyer and the other is a mech. eng. Husband of 40. I have a degree in El.Ed.
I have two grandson and four grand daughter. I recently had a total knee replacement and finding it hard to do the kind of exercises I want. I have low thyroid, and was recently diagnosed with hashimoto thyroiditis. A new thyroid medication was added in addition to my taking melatonin to help me sleep better.

I enjoy reading Christian Novels. I have several authors that I love... Karen Kingsbury and others who write about the Amish.

    "When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out;
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
    You may succeed with another blow,
    Success is failure turned inside out--
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."
