I am in rehab after falling and breaking pelvic bone. Missed Christmas with family, but have many others here to get to know in the dining room. Hope to join in on some activities soon; don't know what they have other than bingo. Hope all of you had a good Christmas. Mine will be better next year.

Member Since: 9/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 27,904

My Goals:
Ideally, to get down to 130 lbs. Would happily settle for 135.

My Program:
Watching my intake of carbs, very little fried foods and trying to overcome my

constant desire for sweets by eating fruits daily. Trying not to snack in the evenings, that is when I am most vulnerable.

Personal Information:
From St. Louis area. Mother of 3, gm of 6, ggm of 5. Retired 4 yrs ago. Am a Christian with mostly church-based activities. Limited income doesn't allow traveling etc, but manage to keep busy. Seem to be addicted to reading and saving recipes???? (seldom try them, tho) No pets, no husband, no worries (?) Just a little bit zany; love humor (clean, that is). Unfortunately, I am a procrastinator who is going to do everything (tomorrow!)

Other Information:
Favorite book - the Bible. Also read a news magazine to keep up with what's going on and not having TV sound bites be my main source. Read several other mags, Readers Condensed Digest books, spiritual books and mags. Attend Bible Study classes, flexibilty-based exercise class designed for arthitis sufferers, meet with other women at local library to knit and crochet (& gab) and keep my eyes open for other local activities of interest to my age group. Visits with family limited due to distance (and everyone is so busy!) so I made a determination a long time ago to "entertain" myself and not be dependent on others (unless I have to be). Have some wonderful friends and my family loves me & I them - who could ask for anything more?

    Mary Lou, your post today was very special and gave me pause for thought also.

    I really like your Sparkpage, you did a nice job.

    I too have only recently been reunited with my sister after the death of our mother April 2007. Isn't it a shame we waste so much time? But thank the Lord we did not wait until it was too late.

    God bless.
