Hi! Thank you for visiting my page. My journey...Well, I have been on and off of Spark People since about 2011. I am now in my 50's and like others am finding it more challenging every day to lose the weight. I know it can be done since I have done it before, but I am a bit older and now have degenerative disc disease in my lower spine so that has kept me down a little, but I just need to change my focus and strengthen my determination to get going and lose this weight. Maybe less carbs, sugar, and more exercise? Maybe more determination and less laziness? Either way, somethings gotta change!

My Goals:
My goals are to lose at least 40 lbs, gain confidence and pride in my appearace, have overall better health and just feel better.

My Program:
I am determined to get my mind set to work out daily, eat better, and eat smaller portions. You don't realize how the weight creeps up on you when your portion size is just a bit too large.

Personal Information:
I am married and mother to a wonderful fur baby German Shepherd named Nikita =) whom I love dearly. Family means the world to me. My husband, sisters, brother, their spouses and children and their children's children, my in-laws, my late parents, cousins, etc...I am truly blessed.

Other Information:
Something that helps keep me going when I find myself anxious is to remember to always do good to all people, at all times, in every situation, especially to those people that challenge you. It's not always easy, but it is important.

    Thanks for asking about my visit to the foot nurse. As a diabetic, I need to take special care of my feet. I have terrible ingrown toenails and my vision is bad enough that I can no longer see well enough to look after them myself without taking part of my toe along with the the clipped nail, so now I have to go to a professional. Turned out I had a toe fungus that I didn't know about because I couldn't see it. This nurse is helping with both those issues. Today's visit was my second, and she says they are coming along very nicely. (Sorry if TMI and I hope it doesn't gross you out.)
