Ghostbuster at Work

halloween 1016. I got many compliments on my Roadkill Zombie costume and makeup.

shambling adds effect! I guess I'm a domestic zombie since I tend to hang out in the kitchen?

(can I brag? just a little? on 12-12-15, my page was the daily featured SparkPeople Motivator. and honestly, that just made me bust my Feel-Good Gut! THANK YOU!)

I'm a highly educated, 60+, retired lady whose main "fun" right now is leading an aerobics class twice a week. I'm not a tech-head, but I'm active, involved, and always searching for more friends. I'm even better in person, as I'm pretty laid-back and accepting!

I've learned how to reach a weight loss goal -- I reached my goal weight by Low Carbing, a la Atkins. But I got severe lack of support at a time of great stress, did the stupid thing and regained the weight, and now am starting all over. (Update: now halfway there.) I'm smart, but I have learned you are always stronger when you have help. I KNOW I can do this; but I'd love to have a buddy.

My goal is to lose weight and keep it off for ME -- to look good, feel good, and be healthier for the rest of my life. I'm finally OVER (that was SO last decade!) the struggle to stay YOUNG and pushing myself far too hard. Now, I'm more relaxed -- I enjoy gardening, oil painting, stained-glass making, dancing, reading, and cuddling with my dear friend Ginger (that green thing on my shoulder in my profile image), in addition to my more vigorous pursuits of snow-skiing, step-aerobics, shooting hoops, and hula-hooping. Hey, ya gotta keep it fun!

    Hi there Koshie, thanks for your kind thoughts.

    It has been devasting in the Islands, but not too bad here. Mostly flooding and electric outages.

    I am up in the North Island and we just had rain and a bit blowy.

    Not on spark much these days. Still cycling low carb and low cal.

    Love your Halloween costume. :)

    emoticon I am hoping your back is better and that you are able to move a bit. I am tired of the cold. How about you? May each day be a bit better than the day before. emoticon

    it's crazy but my old phone can still take and send photos through wifi, but my new phone that claims to have a super duper camera cannot. I need to remedy that one final time back at tech --some genius bar.
