Twelve years of living a more healthy lifestyle through Sparkpeople and I am still learning and absorbing changes with each new day. The weight is at a standstill but my body is feeling so much more healthy with better nutrition and increased activity, which seems to amaze my doctors. I am a 73 year old baby boomer born, raised, and currently living in the "Show-Me State of Missouri", after a twenty year journey as a military wife. I recently semi-retired from the field of rental property management by working in the office only 3 days a week. I am a proud mother & grandmother. My daughter lives just a few miles from me, a granddaughter who is attending college in Iowa. son and his wife that reside in Arkansas with two their two sons and a grandson. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with me on earth but is always in my heart. I love motivational quotes and Sparkpeople has several that I enjoy and try to implement in my daily life.

    I know my oxygen machine is so much trouble to haul around. It's noisy when you are in a quiet room too. It's a lot of trouble anymore just to get dressed and ready to go anywhere so here I sit, day after day. Depression is a horrible thing and I pray we both get better!
