A lot has changed since last time I was here. I am now a published author. My book, "The Road to Healing" came out a couple months ago and my next book, "Losing Weight without Hunger; the secret to permanent weight loss" will be available in a couple of weeks. At last, I found something that works and have lost 60 pounds so far and am continuing to lose slowly. This has become a way of life so I am confident that I will not gain it back. Life is great!

Update: I have now published my third book, "Fibromyalgia for Families and Friends"


Member Since: 1/26/2009

Fitness Minutes: 18,974

My Goals:
I want to get down to a healthy weight, which for me is 150 to 160 pounds.

I started my own practice, House Calls, to provide holistic healthcare in patient's homes. I hoped to help others lose weight and get healthier too! Unfortunately my own health got in the way so I had to retire. Now I need to find a way to be more active with out making my fibromyalgia flare.


My Program:
In the past I have tried various kinds of products/programs that required me to buy or use something other than regular food. I lost weight but afterwards would gain back more than I lost. This time I am using real food. This is a permanent change so I don't want to lose fast, I want to slowly change my body to healthy and lean. Even when I succumb to junk food on occasion, I just go back to eating normally. I am really not all that hungry or having a lot of food cravings.



Personal Information:
I've recently retired from being a nurse practitioner. We put the farm up for sale and moved into a motor home.

    A long time ago , a mother prepared for Christmas Eve. She cleaned and scrubbed her home, chasing the spiders from the living room with her broom. The spiders fled to the attic and listened to the excitement below as the Christmas tree was put up and decorated. When all was quiet again, the little spiders crept back downstairs to see the beautiful tree. They were filled with happiness as they crawled along every branch, admiring the glittering beauty of each ornament. But alas, by the time they had finished climbing through the tree, it was completely draped with their dusty, gray cobwebs.

    When the Christ child came, He smiled as He looked upon the happy little spiders, however, He knew the mother would be heartbroken when she saw the shrouded tree. So He reached out and touched the webs and, blessing them, turned them into silver and gold. Now the Christmas tree sparkled and shimmered and was even more beautiful than before. Thus the custom to have tinsel of silver and gold and a spider ornament among the other decorations on the Christmas tree was born.
