Hi and welcome to SparkPeople. There are so many great tools and great people involved with this site. I'm sure that SP can help you along on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Good luck reaching your goals!

I'm also a retired SPED teacher. I started sparking the year that I retired and have never looked back.

Hello to all! I am a brand-new rookie to Sparkpeople. I need help in losing weight. I am a retired school teacher (Special Needs) and I am caregiver to my father-in-law who has Alzheimer's disease. When I am stressed, I eat! I have probably gained about 15 pounds since I retired last May 2012. I do have a treadmill and my daughter gave me a yoga mat with video for Christmas. Basically, I just do not eat right!!! I hope I can connect with people who have some of the issues I do and we can motivate each other.
