I'm Susanna.

Date Joined SP: January 17 2011

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: 35lbs before my daughter's wedding in July!

Overall Goal: To get my weight down so that I don't have so much pain in my back. I have health issues that the extra weight is making worse.

2 Random, Fun Facts about You: I'm a rescuer of anything needing to be rescued! I managed to tame 2 ferrel kittens that were abandoned, and now am getting ready to take them to the vet to be fixed. I'll keep feeding them, but they can still be wild! Also, I have 7 grandkids spread out between Georgia, Texas and Washington State.


Anything else you want to share: I'm married, with no more kids at home now, so a little extra energy for me! I'm a Texan, if anybody understand what that means! I work in a hospital helping admitted patients who are unfunded with programs to cover the medical bills. I witness the downsides of being overweight, or with unhealthy lifestyles, so I have no excuses for me not to change. We have a chance to change today, to make our tomorrows better.


With God, all things are possible!

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: 127/need to lose 50 more lbs.

Overall Goal: To feel light in my body and mind. To be able to jump, leap and wear high heels again without pain!

2 Random, Fun Facts about You:
I'm only a little bit over 5' tall and when my hips were close to matching my height I knew I was in trouble!
I'm sort of childish in my likes and dislikes and in the ways I would like to exercise. Hula hoop, swing, mini golf, tetherball, teeter-totter. I just want to have fun!

Anything else you want to share: I have been on many cruises (over a year's worth of days) and now I'm ready for something new. I think more adventures in our motorhome out into the forests or following Route 66. But they say gas is going up, so maybe just in the NW. I would love to have my own kayak!

My name is Elizabeth, but online I'm known as elizRN. I'm from Sarasota, Florida. I'm not a Floridian, but a NE Girl & plan to move back north as soon as our house sells.

I've been a member on SparkPeople for several years. I spend a good amount of time teaching about my fave subjects...sugar & food addiction & emotional management. I know all of them "first hand" having spent the first part of my life "gaining" experience.

Two fun things about me? Well, I'm a foodie & love to prepare healthy foods. I also have a "pointed tongue" metaphorically speaking of course!

Be encouraged. When God is correcting you, he is cleaning out your old thoughts and ways so that he can help you see the benefits of following and praising him. Corrections will make you a better person and that is what he is doing.
