Bienvenue sur ma page !

(I updated my weight history on August 30th 2013 : see below)

Introduction :

My main advice :

If you have Dear Family Members or Dear Friends : meet them as much as you can, phone them, write to them. I forgot that life was so short ! and it hurts !

Exercise as much as you can.
Don't get stressed for nothing. Relax.
Of course, it's important to have a good diet and to take good care of your healh.

En route to a new me ?
I hope !

I am quite a happy girl !
but what I miss the more in this life is that :

... unfortunaly we still don't have any children. We are thinking of adopting... but I am slow to do anything at the moment... !

A Pet :
My brother tried once to make his doggy (a King Charles) pregnant to give us one of the babies.
We are hesitating about the breed of our future doggy.
As we travel, we think that maybe it would wiser to get a maltese dog or a French puddle-maltese, etc as these dogs are smaller than a King Charles.
Moreover, Hubby was allergic to cats in the past. I know that an allergy can come and go but as maltese have hair instead of fur, they are more adapted for allergic people, I thought.
I keep you posted. I would be obliged to do every day one or several walks so that would be good for my shape !

I weighed 147 pounds (67 kg) for 20 years : I used to swim twice or 3 times a week.
I put on weight since... because I stopped swimming... !

In september 2007 after we came back from France I weighed 176 pounds.
When I joined SparkPeople, on January 31st, 2008, I weighed 174 pounds.
I never weighed more than 176 pounds in my life. I wanted to show on my chart that weight to see the progress. So withouht SparkPeople, I lost 2 pounds myself but I have a lot more to lose with SparkPeople...

In January 2013, I weighed 183 pounds.
My GP told me to lose 10 pounds (I started having high blood pressure) and exercise more : what I did !
Now I am even under 173 pounds :
168.5 pounds on August 30th, 2013 !

I love ballet and swimming.

I felt a pain, in May 2007 (grand-plies at the ballet class : I was about 163 pounds, already too much weight for these knees, I suppose.)
I take glucosamine (for the joints), it helps, no more pain due to arthritis in the knees.

I have a lack of iron (certainly due to a bad diet in the past few years). I had a treatment and I feel better now.

DH has heart issues. We have to be careful with cholesterol, fat.

My Dad was back home (he was in a rest home for several months). He was with my Mum again. He died one week ago.

A bientot !

    Merci beaucoup, for returning the friendship and for the compliment on my pofile. lol :o)!!! & correct my french, if I am wrong. Will you review/critique my video blogs & my informational blogs? emoticon & are you the ballerina who joins me on occasion, perfecting my airplane ( that exercise from the SP exercises) & with areabusques on squates and knee flex w/extensions? If you are I am grateful and if not well I am still grateful and should know that someone with experience is usually working out with me. emoticon

    Dear Friend, Thank you for dropping by my page and for your kind words. Love and prayers Jenny

    Psalms 27: 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
    4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
    5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

    A different look at Psalms 100

    "Enter His gates with
    Joy and thanksgiving
    And enter His courts with praise
    Say to the Lord
    How thankful you are
    For His love and unmerited grace
    For there’s much that we
    Can be thankful for
    The blessings of God in our lives
    The people that God
    Has blessed us with
    And the hope that we have in Christ.."

    SYLPHIDE, tonight I visited with the 'sparkpages suggested for you', and your page is listed as one such so i stopped by to check it (your page) and to see what gives with you. I like your aim, especially the part about being in the gym for legs arms & tummy for 90 minutes. This has been my goal since my joining SP in February 2011; so far I am seeing visible results and I am still executing and workingout.

    I wish you well with your legs arms and tummy toning & firming endeavors. As I wish yu well, and since we have that much in common, I have emoticon you, by all means feel free too friend me back, perhaps we could work out at the same time or talk techniques, strength & balance. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
