14 years of striving to live a more healthy life through all the wonderful resources offered here on Sparkpeople. Many good days and many no so good days but still here and learning something new each and every day and have enjoyed the many online friendships with team members.

I am a 74 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 with a goal of full retirement in September of 2021.

I am a proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother. My daughter and a granddaughter who live close by and visit frequently. A son and his wife that reside in Arkansas and have grown sons who have given me a great-grandson and a great-granddaughter. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with us here on earth but will always be in my heart.

I love motivational quotes and Sparkpeople has several that I enjoy and try to implement in my daily life.

I was diagnosed with C.O.P.D. in 2001 and have been on supplemental oxygen since 2015 and heart disease/surgery in
2019. I firmly believe my years on Spark has helped with these life challenges and continue to help me live a more healthy lifestyle.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog and your suggestion. I have gone back and changed my goal wt. and put a note saying what my goal range is. That should work.

    I finally realized that trying to stay at 120 was not reasonable at my age! I'm more comfortable haveing change my goal range to something I can stay with now.

    Thank You for the Goodie. I love getting them ! My breathing has been especially rough the last few days as the ozone is not good with the heat and humidity. I have had to really be careful. I go to Mass early in the morning and do what needs to be done before it gets too hot. Pray this finds you well. Have a wonderful evening! Hugs. Pat
