I decided to start anew and reset my goal ticker again in 2016. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some heart issues. As of Jan. 2014, they are all under control with medication. Hopefully, by losing more weight, I can eventually cut down on some meds. 2014 ended on a bad note when my dad passed away in November. 2015 was the Year of the Concert for me & my husband. Continuing into 2016 and 2017!

I have kept off 45 lbs. and am happy to be under 200 lbs. Thanks to SparkPeople, I have the tools and the will power to do it! And, most of all, the support!

Member Since: 10/18/2010

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and get fit! I want to be able to stop some of the medication if I eat better and improve my health.

I want to live to see grandchildren!

My Program:
I will exercise 5 times per week and try to fit in little "mini sessions" whenever I can. I am committing to at least 25 minutes a day. NO computer time until the exercise is done!

I will not give in to emotional eating as I have done so many times in the past.

I will NOT eat past 9 PM.

I will plan my meals and track every little bite! If I ate it, I have to own up to it!

Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart for 39 years. We have 2 adult sons.

I have lived on Long Island (NY) all of my life.

I hope to move to VA or NC when I retire. Or maybe CA near our older son.

Other Information:
I love reading Stephen King novels. Own most of them!

I enjoy sitting outside on my deck and walking by the lake in the preserve nearby. Watch Yankee baseball and like hockey too.

I like listening to a variety of music - I especially love The Cure, Usher, Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Steely Dan, Mary J. Blige, Elton John and I'm a huge John Lennon fan too.

    Grand Canyon is definitely worth the visit. Because I used to live so close, I had many opportunities to visit over the years, but never got tired of going.

    Hi Debb,
    That craft fair was pretty big. I got some ceramic coasters, some specialty teas, and of course roasted pecans. There were a lot of nice things, but not much more that I wanted to get. A lot of people were there on opening day. The music was nice too. The band was playing a lot of Temptations, Commodores, Earth, Wind, and Fire, and Smokey Robinson. Glad I got there today. The humidity and heat are coming back big time tomorrow.

    Hi Debb,
    This won't happen for a while yet. Once I retire next year, I'd love to sell the house and maybe get a small condo in the area most likely. The only other place I'd consider is heading back to NY where my only family is. (actually, now they're in NJ). But I can't see dealing with the cold and snow again. Problem is, down here without a car, you just can't get around and I don't know if I'll be driving until a ripe old age. But that won't be for a long time yet.
    Thanks for checking!
