I'm a young thinking & looking senior citizen who wants to live longer - I love life, love to laugh, & want to enjoy the rest of my years with more mobility & health. I'm not happy that I've let myself go, & I'm going to lose some unnecessary & unwanted weight and GET HEALTHIER for my golden years!

Update 5/20/11: PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION - JUST LIKE MY BODY!

I'm not happy with what's been going on with my body lately - the scales are going the wrong way! I'm going to re-do my page AND my disposition. I have a new knee brace that I was hoping would allow me to get walking - but it hasn't been as helpful as I thought it would be. I'll be updating my page soon.


Member Since: 11/18/2008

Fitness Minutes: 3,791

My Goals:
To become more healthy & get off of some of my medications.

To lose this extra fat - once & for all!


My Program:
A balanced eating plan (1200-1400 calories daily), based on the Spark food tracker - & consistently track my foods.

Regular exercise - which, since I have considerable pain in my hips, knees, & ankles, isn't a whole lot right now. I'm walking almost every day (trying to go a little further each day), & plan to get into a pool most days. Aqua Aerobics is the best I can do for myself!

Drink a minimum of 8 (8 oz.) glasses of water daily.



Personal Information:
I'm a retired (7/09) Registered Nurse - I returned home (Miami) in 12/09 to help my mom after she had surgery, & get myself back on my feet financially after having some big setbacks. The plan was to be here maybe 6 months. It's now been almost 18 months, & I'm still here (though no longer taking care of my mom)! Looking forward to getting things straightened out so I can go back to God's country near Savannah (unless God has another plan for me)!


Other Information:
I enjoy singing, crafts, travel, & time with my family & church family. I look forward to doing more church ministry since I'm retired, praying about starting a Christian bookstore in or near my church once I get back to GA. I sing Gospel (mostly contemporary Christian) - hence my SP name. My son & his son live in the FL panhandle, one daughter & her son live in NC, & my other daughter & her husband & two sons live in SC - I don't get to see any of them often enough.

    Hi, Saw you needed some support today. Wanted you to know you are not alone and that I am here for you. I am sorry you are going through a rough patch. Try and get some good stretching in if you can't do walking right now. That will help relax you . Sending you gentle hugs. Pat

    Thanks for the support - I'm facing a health challenge right now that's keeping me from doing the only exercise that's an option for me - walking. I'm looking for alternates to joining a gym or buying equipment (money's really tight), I guess I just need to vent!
