Chlorine Is My Perfume

I love Summer! I'm in the pool every day weather permits and I am always in a good mood!

Hi, my name is Melissa. I'm nearing 50 years old and I am totally blind. I lost my sight due to Type 1 Diabetes, but I don't let that little inconvenience get me down much! I am an adjunct professor of psychology at my local community college and a licenced profressional counselor. Since joining SP in 2008 I've lost 20 pounds. Yes, I am losing slowly, but I'm losing!

Member Since: 3/28/2008

SparkPoints: 151,709

Fitness Minutes: 170,340

My Goals:
My goal for BLC 25 was to lose 12 pounds and I lost 10. I'm pleased. I'm working now to lose an extra vacation pound!

*Drink 8 to 10 cups of water daily
*eat at least 5 freggies a day -- not hard for me to do in summer!
*walk at least 1 mile daily
*work out at least 20 minutes daily
*stay on a losing streak


My Program:
I joined Weight Watchers after so many teammates were meeting with such success and I like it! I am following the points tracking program because I don't trust my portion sizes! I am also using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to make this a lifestyle change and not just another diet! I walk daily and am restarting my 3 day a week commitment to Curves.


Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I "celebrated" 45 years of being diabetic this May. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and spoiled mutt named Sassy. She is a handful, but it is worth it!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I am an avid belly dancer, but have only recently started to dance again since my mother's death on 12/12/12! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer!! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

Ohhh thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog 'A morning hike on my doorstep'! It was awesome hearing from you. The fact that you were able to hear what I wrote and get an idea of the hike made me feel less bad for being so talkative and enthusiastic when I write about my hikes!
Have a beautiful weekend! emoticon
