A lot has happened in my life since joining SparkPeople two years ago. Just after joining I moved in with my dad who was living alone because my mother was in a nursing home. They both died in 2011; Mama in May and Daddy in September. I continued living in my childhood home until June 2012 when my sisters and I sold the house and I moved into an apartment.

Sorting through and purging things that have been packed away for two years has made me realize I have a lot of "old" things in my life I need to get rid of (not just material things, but habits and thoughts).

As I work on my journey to health my deepest desire is to develop and maintain a deep, passion and intimate relationship with Jesus and allow him to be in complete control so that I might be a light in a dark world.

    Thank you for the flowers, Vickie ~ I appreciate it. I hope that your holiday season is going well for you. Did you ever get that bike?

    After my last note, I looked around a little more, and I thought it might be a good idea to find a bike shop where they could make sure your bike fits you, and they can help you take care of it. I don't know what I would do without my trusty bicycle mechanics, because things do happen.

    I found a place in Wichita called The Bicycle Exchange. They have at least two locations.

    See below for the note they sent me, in response to mine.

    "We do have new and used bicycle locations. This, our, new location (908 W. Douglas) has nice new bicycles starting out at $250 and up. With our other location (1516 E. Central) selling re-condition bicycles ranging out from $49 and up. I hope this helps and feel free to have your friend stop in for a look! Thanks again! Happy Cycling."

    Why don't you go take a look, see what they've got, and see if they are the kind of people who will still be around to help you after the sale. A good used bike for $49 would be a great deal, but without seeing it, it's hard to know what the condition is, and whether it would be right for you.

    The note was from:

    I'd like to help you get a bike. Why don't you look at what's available on Craigslist in your area, and let me know if there is one you like. It seems a real shame that you don't have one, and it would do you good.

    P.S. You might also look at Walmart. Do you have one near you? Here is a bike that might be just the thing for you:
    You probably need a medium frame (17"-18" seat tube)

    Do you know what kind of bicycle you are interested in (road, mountain, hybrid)? I just checked Craigslist for your area, and there appear to be some good deals. Also, how tall are you? Do you know what frame size you would need?
