Four surgeries and a broken arm in three spots in the last three years have set me back a bit. But I've turned the corner and am coming on strong.

The eleven years I have been a member have been great. I have learned so much about how to improve myself, from the site itself and the other members that have become my friends. I have come to rely on the encouragement and support that I get from all. I'm grateful for what I have learned and am looking forward to finding new ways to improve myself.


Member Since: 5/20/2010

Fitness Minutes: 390,438

My Goals:
I want to eat and exercise correctly every day. I want to improve myself: learn something new every day, stay in a schedule that is good for me, and help others when I can.


My Program:
I am learning more with each passing day and finding more ways to improve myself. Stress and anxiety have been my biggest problems and I've been working hard to overcome them. I sometimes let myself slack on my schedule and am always working on that.



Personal Information:
I am from Detroit. I lived in Alabama for 14 years, but came back home to help with Mom in 2010. May of 2015 brought me back to Huntsville, AL. I lived with my youngest daughter and granddaughter in my oldest's daughter's house. My oldest and her husband live 3 minutes away. My email address is pattyklaver@yahoo.com. I got married to Tim McGraw June 9, 2018 and we bout a house last spring - right in between my daughters' houses.


Other Information:
I love reading, arts and crafts, sports, and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy spending time on SP.
I am spending a great deal of time with Helena, my granddaughter, and loving every minute of it.

    Patty thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog. I consider you one of my closest friends on Spark and admire you so much.
    You suffer so much but don't let it keep you down. You keep going.
    I use a walker as my balance is not too good. I cannot carry a pillow.
    What hurt worst was when I was lying on that belt like bed for the cat scan. I asked for an extra pillow for my head but the scanner wouldn't work right. I told the tech that I had broken a vertebrae and he put a wedge under my knees. This helped a lot. The girl didn't seem to care or maybe just didn't know what to do.
    I broke my T-9 and they were going to do a simple surgery but he said my osteoporosis was too bad and he was afraid he would damage other vertebrae.
