Jan. 22,2011
Wow! I've been with SPARKPEOPLE and you wonderful people for over 3 years now!...I lost 25 or so lbs. and learned so much about myself. I learned that I can have a lot more control over my choices than I thought I had. I began making better choices over what I ate.
Then my world was shot to pieces on Feb. 6,2010. I had a massive heart attack,died and was brought back . Now I am in end-stage renal desease and spend 3 days a week on kidney dialysis. This will be my life until God takes me home. I've put myself completely in His hands!
My weight is tightly watched so I will know if I'm gaining too much water weight! So far,so good!
I miss you guys,so will be popping in to say 'hello' and see how you are doing!
Take care and I thank you for all the prayers,Mona
I'll post some different photos soon!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight in order to enjoy my Senior years more fully.It is so wonderful to finally have lots of free time! The way I am now,it is a big effort just to go on a short walk with my husband!
As of Jan. 1,2009,I have lost 20 lbs. By tracking my food and walking daily on my treadmill,I hope to lose another 20-30 lbs.in 2009!

My Program:
My program is tracking my food,keeping with-in my calorie limit,drinking 8-10 cups of water each day and walking,walking,and more walking!

Personal Information:
My name is Mona[with a short o] I am 6

Other Information:
I like to consider my self artistic. I design and make quilts and beaded jewelry. I love to read,mostly mysteries and biographys. I guess I'm what is called "high-strung". This is the excuse I use to explain my eating before bed .It calms me down. Who am I fooling? Ha Ha!

    Here's sending you a springtime wish
    that's green and full of fun...
    Shamrocks and leprechauns
    will have you on the run!

    Shamrocks are the lucky plant
    three leaves they have not more...
    Many people search the world
    hoping to find four!

    The shamrock gained its claim to fame
    in Ireland you see...
    When St.Patrick used them to
    explain the Trinity!

    Leprechauns, begins the tale
    little men dressed in green...
    Heavy drinking, pulling pranks
    trying not to be seen!

    Cranky fellows with no friends
    their passions drink and gold...
    It's said they hide large pots of it
    at the end of each rainbow!

    Here's wishing you a happy day
    filled with Irish cheer...
    Just keep an eye on your gold
    and better watch your beer!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! emoticon emoticon
