I'm 56 (yikes!) and live on Long Island, NY, Grew up in NJ, except for 4 years when I lived in Michigan, and of course, now. That's where I've always lived and its where we'll retire when the time comes.

I have two grown steps and share three grand babies with their other grandparents. I did mechanical drafting and computer graphics for 25 years and "retired" in 2000.

I like to read, quilt and do counted cross stitch. I watch too much tv which I'm trying to change.

I discovered SparkPeople when the website I was using stopped offering weight management and referred all its users to SP. This site is better than anything I've seen before and I'm very excited about my future.

Member Since: 8/1/2008

Fitness Minutes: 14,406

My Goals:
To learn what is needed to live a healthier, longer life.

To be able to climb a mountain and not be out of breath three feet from the base.

To run and feel the wind on my face.

To have my husband pick me up and hold me close.

My Program:
I joined Weight Watchers in January 2011 and I'm using the "Eat Right 4 Your Type" program and eating clean within that program, drinking lots of water (I gave up soft drinks many moons ago) , walking and using exercise videos to get me off the couch and move! I'm relying on my Spark Teams to help me when I hit a bump, a valley or a road block. I just need to remember to ask for help.

Personal Information:
Married 21 years to Hank, a Jersey Girl at heart, no kids, no pets, (unless you count Hank) and am a person of faith who finally understands that when I say I am not my own but belong to Jesus Christ, that it also includes my struggle with weight. No more limits!

Other Information:
"Faith is a journey not a guilt trip."

    I bought one of your table runners that were for sale during the pumpkin patch in October. I keep forgetting to tell you how much I love it. I have it on the table and it is so beautiful. You are very talented. I always wanted to quilt but never learned and was never able to make it to the quilting circle at church. So, your beautiful piece inspired me to buy a book on quilting. Now all I need is the sewing machine!! Waiting for the tax return for that one!

    But again, thanks very much for making that. It will be out on my Thanksgiving table.

    You are very welcome :) Thank you for stopping by again. :*) That means alot to me.. I haven't been doing very well with my new eating plan. It seems as though I am great at planning and getting all excited.....but then when the time comes to finally start, well... I'm not so good at that part. I really didn't think anyone would notice or even care. Thank you :*) sincerely, Janet
