THIS IS WHAT I SAID 3 YEARS AGO WHEN I JOINED SPARKPEOPLE......I love to do many activities, but seem to have slowed down over the years from health issues. Now I am a prisoner of a body I dont want anymore. I would like to get out and do the things I love with out huffing and puffing.
Today, I can proudly say I have lost 40 lbs and still counting. I am able to climb stairs and small hills/inclines without feeling like I am having a 911 moment. I am more active than ever and love life more than ever.....I am going places I never dared to go before!! I am prescription med free!!! But best of all....I can proudly say....I LOVE ME!!! and that my friends....is IMPRESSIVE TO ME!!!

Member Since: 5/17/2008

Fitness Minutes: 23,763

My Goals:
My goals are to stop drinking Diet Soda.
(Mission Accomplished)

Lose at least 100 lbs.

Get back into the activities I love to do, as my body permits.

Continue to learn everything I can to live a healthier and more active lifestyle.

To keep climbing up hill to seek that pot of gold...and if I fall..get right back up and trudge some more.

My Program:
What I am doing to meet these goals are ... following the menu plan on my nutrition plan.

Doing all of the mini challenges each week.

Doing many of the other exercises available to me.

Reading all the information that is provided by Sparks and following their advice.

Staying focused and consistently weighing myself each week.

Last but not least...BEING HONEST WITH MYSELF!!!

Personal Information:
I live in a beautiful CA desert community. It gets very hot here in the summer. Our highest temp ever has been 128 degrees.

I have three beautiful daughters, 2 grandson and one granddaughter and another little girl on the way..

A wonderful Husband of 21 years.

Two sons-in-law

I am an active and vibrant person even though I am over weight.

Other Information:
I love to go camping, fishing, hiking, and love to play sports with my family.

Some of my hobbies are scrapbooking, reading, listening to music, laughing, making people smile and feel good about themselves, baking and cooking, and creating my own new recipes.

I rescue animals off the streets in our town. I nurture them and teach them to love again and then I find them good homes to families that need a new friend/family member.

    Hi and welcome to our High Blood Pressure Team where you will find lots of information and loads of support. Just post any questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    SparkPeople is not another diet; it is a positive lifestyle change...
    Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8-8oz glasses daily) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of lowering numbers and weight loss. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!!
    It's good to meet and have you with us.
    Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
    God bless you in your new adventures.
