All of my life has been a battle of the "bulge" I love to cook, bake and eat! For many years I have tried to put a healthy "spin" on cooking but it just isn't enough. Now that the weight is problematic to my joints I need to get serious.

I am retired and live in FL with my best friend, my husband, who for 57 years has shared this adventure called life with me. We have 3 children on earth and one in heaven and we have been blessed with 9 "perfect" grandchildren...LOL

Member Since: 8/1/2013

Fitness Minutes: 11,795

My Goals:

I want to live a healthy life and do what I can to take care of this body. It is wearing out and I haven't always been kind to it... I used to smoke and I have always loved to eat the wonderful things I love to bake.

My Program:
Since I came back to SP in Jan. 2021 I have been doing "Geri Keto" It is my version of a "dirty Keto" I also do IF and some longer fasts. I have just completed a SP challenge 25 lbs in 25 weeks but I actually lost 26 lbs in 22 weeks. I have never done this well on any diet. This is not a diet - this is my new lifestyle.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in PA. I have been married to the same wonderful guy for 57 years. We have three children on earth and one in heaven and we have 9 fabulous grandchildren. We are retired and live in FL.

Other Information:
We spend a lot of our time doing God's work. We are Catholics and my husband has been a Deacon for 39 years. I love to read, knit and spend time with our children and grandchildren.

    Not sure why my blogs are coming up private..that is odd. If my blogs were private, you would not be able to leave comments on any part of my spark page either....very weird

    Hi Geri :)
    I'm so sorry I haven't checked in these past few weeks. It's been crazy busy and I've been spending much of my time living out of an overnight bag...I wasn't going to check in again until the 1st of June but I peeked on the scale when I got home this morning so I figured I would jump on here and blog my weigh-in results.
    and....I'm also getting our camper ready as we are leaving around 2pm for a long weekend of camping and fishing (again..)...more about that in my blog.
    Anyways...I really hope that you and your family are doing well. Life is so short and only getting shorter....enjoy every single minute of it ((HUGS))

    Hi Geri, I hope you’re having a great time with your kids. I’m typing this from my phone due to technical issues with my computer. I hope to be back online soon.
