I'm a 64 yr. old retired healthcare worker. The most important things in my life are my family, friends, and my Christian faith.
My name is Pearle.

My favorite saying is: " I didn't intend to do anything today, and so far I am right on schedule!"
I am trying to change that though, by becoming more active.

Member Since: 1/11/2008

Fitness Minutes: 7,228

My Goals:
To loose weight, excersise and live a healthier lifestyle .
The weight loss is going slower than I had anticipated, but I will get to my goal eventully

My Program:
Counting calories and joined CURVES for excersise.
I go 3 times a week.
Don't think I could do it by myself. Sparkpeople is a Godsend! I love it.

Personal Information:
I was born in Vermont and lived there until shortly after my marriage . We moved to my husbands home state of Montana in 1968. Have lived here since. It's a great place to live!!
Together we raised 3 wonderful daughters who are beautiful inside and out. They are my best friends!
My hubby of 41 years and I started camping about 7 years ago and LOVE it. There are so many beautiful places to camp here in Montana.
My passion is Hospice work. I was employed by our local hospital's Hospice Department for 11 years. I worked mostly graveyard shift as a CNA and Respite Aide. I started out as a volunteer, and have now gone back to that.

Other Information:
I like movies. Just about everything except science fiction or violence. Actors I like are RobinWilliams, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicolson,
Meryl Streep, Glen Close, Diane Keaton.
I spent 6 years (almost every day) researching and compiling information for my geneology. I used Family Tree Maker Program and had so much fun finding out about both sides of my family and my husbands. I did it so my 3 children and 8 grandchildren would know their heritage.
I sing in our church choir and have held many offices in the various churches where I've been a member.
