She is autistic, has water on the brain, seizures (well controled fortunately) and cerbral palsy. Lost my husband & son both in 2012. Cause me to gain about 40 lbs back. Now in a relationship with an amazing fellow. He's now on a more healthy diet too. We enjoy traveling around the country in our RV.

Other Information:
I'm somewhat of a Geek, I have been using my iPhone for the last 2 years and came to find Spark People through the applications as I was looking for receipes. I have over 250 applications on my phone and wish I had more memory for storage!

I carried a Palm OS Zodiac 2 for the PIM's and such and probably had almost as many apps on it. I set up my earlier palm pilots to use my cell phone as a modem to let me browse the web. So slow, that was back about 2001 or so. Also my bag got heavy carrying around all the cables I had!

    You certainly are a busy woman, aren't you? I'm ready to retire too but want my retirement to be fun and in good health. That's why i also opted for the rny. It looks like you are doing a good job with it so far. That's inspiration to me.
