Just a bit about me: I have many medical issues but have made a decision that I can live or I can give up I have chosen to live. This can be difficult. I am an insulin dependent diabetic with gastroparesis. This is terribly challanging. I also live with lupus and fibromyalgia and minor, details like asthma. I live with surgery on my stomac every 3-4 months but I feel lucky this is available to me, very blessed as a wife and mother grandmother, teacher and church musician, and college student, at the age of 53. I choose to live and do as much and often as possible. I have been able to do, through God to live with the pain and difficulties and I am a most fortunate individual. I also thank the lord for this web site and all my teams and friends here at Sparks! Blessings to all p.s. this is a wonderful and motivational place to spend at least 1-2 hours a day, which gives me motivation to keep going. Hurray!

I would like to lose another 15 -20lbs. I have lost 80+ lbs over the past 3 years, I try to keep myself motivated, as I need to keep it up to live.

My Program:

So maybe someday.

    So, what kind of flowers did you plant?

    Thank you for your very kind comments on my spark page. Yes, I do remember meeting you earlier..... maybe on another thread? If you would like, I could take a photo of an annual in my yard that is the same as one of your annuals and I could send it to you -- for your use as a profile photo? It would be of an annual that you like, therefore a little bit of you will be in the phto? Let me know, we can work out the details. Keep inspiring others!
