I am working on weight loss and general health improvement. I want to alleviate my osteoarthritis and high blood pressure, lower my cholesterol count and risk of a cancer recurrence, sleep better, reduce stress, be able to buy clothes that fit--just to be healthier and more confident all around.

(In case you're wondering about my profile image, I taught English Renaissance literature. This is my favorite portrait of Queen Elizabeth I.) Retired as of August 5, 2015--woohoo!
