Livin' the good life!

I came to SparkPeople to turn things around in my life. As I get closer to retirement, I've vowed that a rocking chair is not in my future! And it's working - after a year, I've shed the pounds, and have a much healthier outlook on life. Doesn't get much better than that!

Personal Information:
I'm a 62 year old biologist, currently living in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of SW VA. I became a biologist because I have a deep appreciation and concern for all of the beautiful creatures with whom we share our planet, but especially birds. I enjoy getting outside, hiking, bird watching, and hand crafts. Luckily for me, I live in the perfect spot to indulge in all of the above. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the local foods movement. I guess you could say that I have a long history of tree-hugging!

Other Information:
"Hope is the thing with feathers."

Since you read the book "walk in the woods" if you remember does Character Bryson finish the trail by himself?? My husband seems to think he did and I'm not sure...I think they both decided to head home before they finished, but the end of the movie I guess was questionable to my dear husband. Maybe you could clafiy. Thanks Lesley

Hi Judy ,
So nice to hear from you ! I am enjoying the great summer weather we have had here and taking advantage of anything outdoors ! Do you think you'll ever be back ?
What kinds of classes are you taking ? Is there some continuing ed that you do connected with your work ?

I didn't get any results yet. She sent me for an x-ray, but I haven't heard about that yet either. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get some news.
Wow - two sweaters. That's a good deal!

Yes, being around others makes me forget all about my food goals, that's a tough one. Happy Tuesday! :)
