each day is a new chance to start over, to forget my transgressions, to forgive my failures, to become my absolute best. The person who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

Member Since: 1/7/2010

Fitness Minutes: 28,183

My Goals:
On January 1,2009 I became a first-time Nana.My Grammy became a first-time great-great-grammy. With the increase in my weight,my hypertension has returned.I want to be a great-great-grammy! I know this will require life-style changes, and every small step leads to a new goal. When I married my third husband the minister told we are God's gift to each other-my husband deserves the best of everything. My goal is to be my best self so I can be there for him.

My Program:
I have started being more aware of what goes in my mouth and what should go in it. By taking each day as it comes, including the back-slides and accomplishments get me thru. My mother always told me I could do anything. Even fail. And that's ok. As long as I learn from those mistakes and don't let them hold me back.

Personal Information:
I'm from a little town north of Allentown, Pa. I have lived in this area all my life. I have a very strong family support system. I have been married x3. I actually met my current hubby over 40 yrs ago when we were children, growing up in racing families with unbelievably similar values.

Other Information:
I like handcrafts, esp crocheting and needlepoint. I collect cookbooks and enjoy cooking. I'm not real good, but I enjoy it. We are from families who have followed racing our whole lives, and though no long participate enjoy Saturday nite local tracks

    Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

    Hi Rose, I read what you wrote on my blog, sorry I am a newbie to all of this. I could suggest however to eat PROTEIN all the time. I think when we graze we tend to craze on carbs because they go down easy, but protein fills us up. It is just a suggestion, far be it for me to really know what it is like so many years out.

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm glad my body is so forgiving, lol! On Monday, I did "start over" and I just need to realize that it's ok to do that. To use some business buzzwords, I need to manage my expectations since I'm not perfect all the time and I certainly don't want to go swearing off all food. I just need to be more aware and plan a little better.
