I've been a part of SparkPeople since 2007, but we live in a remote village where internet service is often a challenge. I love it when I can connect to Spark People, because it helps me with personal accountability. (And, thankfully, our current service is much more consistent, so I seem to be on a roll again! WHAHOO!)

2014 and 2019 were my "skinny" years. Pretty consistently have kept off 45 pounds. I'm ready to hit it hard and move on down! I still have a ways to go. Am going to start 2021 getting rid of bins of clothes I haven't touched in 6 years! YAY!

This site remains an encouragement to help me stay on track! As missionaries to Mexico, my biggest obstacles are lack of reliable internet, support, and convenience diet foods. I love the encourgement I get from SparkPeople. Blessings! SHARON


Member Since: 4/12/2007

Fitness Minutes: 73,613

My Goals:
Reduce blood pressure
Lose weight
Increase energy and self image
Increase my life longevity (plan to out-live my Mother, who passed at 90--I will turn 67 in February!)


My Program:
Recently my husband has taken some positive steps towards improving his health. This has enabled me to make a subtle switch to the DASH diet, which better encapsulates both of our health needs. Of course, I've not exactly announced that to him, but he is accepting more fruits and vegetables and accepting my direction for less sugar in his diet. I, personally have found that truly counting my FREGGIES has made a huge difference in reducing my hunger. And . . . something really strange is happening . . . I'm falling in love with fish. Having grown up as a Kansas farm girl and eating beef my whole life, it's a new/fun surprise that is helping my dietary changes a lot!



Personal Information:
I'm a wife and mother of 3 adults living in the States and grandmother of one AMAZING grandson! I'm also a small-town, Kansas farm girl who has travelled far but never lost a love for her roots and wholesome values she learned there! We live and work in Mexico as missionaries where we minister to a pretty closed, indigenous people group who have a completely different culture and language. Hard work, but the rewards are amazing!

Other Information:
I love to read, bird and butterfly watch, garden, and share Jesus with the precious people of the world. Teaching is my special gifting. Our God is a RESTORATION God--so amazing--so powerful! What a joy to live for Him and have some small part in His Kingdom!
