I am so very grateful to be on this journey with so many wonderful people. I made the decision to do something about my weight the end of 2008 and discussed my desires with my doctor. She gave me the go-ahead with a few suggestions and directions. After much planning and idea getting from the show "The Biggest Loser," I began my journey the beginning of March 2009.

I found SparkPeople while looking for a free calorie counter as recommended by another fitness site I joined. Even though I lost 10 pounds the first two weeks with this other site, I switched to SparkPeople. Cost (free!!!) is not the primary reason why I joined: The recipes, the flexibility of fitness and nutrition planning, and most important to me is the Spark Community.

I have received support and encouragement from my fellow travelers, and because of the awsome example of those who have made me feel a part of what I believe is a gift from God; I have been inspired to pass on what has been so freely given to me.

May all who visit my SparkPage take away something to help them on their journey. God Bless.

My Goals:
My goals are to: A. Change my eating and exercising habits

I plan on following the recommended meal and exercise plans that will lead me to receive and give support whenever I can.

Personal Information:
Please call me Mary, Grandma is for a select few. I'm 59 with 3 adult sons, and 7 grand children. My late husband and I along with another couple operated a community theatre until lung cancer took his life. I've been a widow for over 20 years so, it's just "Spud the Pug" and me. My middle son, Andre, lives close by here in San Bernardino, CA, and I'm very involved in the day to day affairs of his 8 year old son.

Other Information:
I have enjoyed writing scripts for stage and the cinema that have not sold yet, but would love to go back to staging productions. I believe I'll be able to meet this personal goal once I've achieved my fitness goals.

    Mary, You seem to be doing so well. I am making progress. It has slowed down some, but it is still steady. Just got back from a weekend visiting the family. Our two grandsons kept me moving playing with them. I hated to leave. Found out they will be coming to GA next month for a few days with my daughter-in-law & her mom to visit her grandmother. The boys will be spending from lunch one day to about 3 pm the next day. I know that will be fun...they were already planning what we were going to do while they were here.

    Tonight is our weekly dinner out with friends. We are celebrating DH's birthday tonight...he got to pick the place. He chose an Italian place that I have been to before, so I shouldn't have any problems eating right. I told him I would pay for his meal. He just laughs because I don't bring in a paycheck and all the money coming in his his checks. Hey I took the money out of the bank and I will give it to the waitress to cover the bill. I think that makes me paying for it...don't you agree????

    Keep it up. You are doing great!!

    emoticon Oh Mary! You said I had 'clarity' and I love you for it! As someone with my history, you can imagine my self-esteem suffered somewhat in not accomplishing my goals throughout life. Thank you so much for letting me know you dropped by. It's nice to meet you. I'm sorry for the loss of your husband. My mom's going through treatment right now. It's sad. You have a beautiful family. Take care, and get a snack when you finish my SP page - lol.

    Mary you are doing so good. Hope you are having a good week. So far mine has been a busy one. We are getting ready to go to KY for the weekend to visit family. Really looking forward to seeing them all...especially our 2 grandsons. I don't get to see them enough. Have a good day!
