I will be turning 65 this summer (had to sign up for medicare) Can't believe how fast time has gone by.

I am a retired teacher and live on Cape Cod with my husband. We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren who we love dearly! We enjoy walking on most days through the cottage area and down to the beach. In the summer, I have a garden and my husband has a small boat that he uses for fishing. The rest of the year we plan trips and travel. We just went to Alaska in June and have a Hawaii trip planned for October.

Right now I am in the Summer 5% Challenge. I love it! It has motivated me to get back to tracking and watching my calories. I have been back and forth to SparkPeople over many years. It is a terrific online support.

My Goals:
My goal this summer is to lose 5% of my weight with the help of the Summer Challenge
My long term goal is to finish what I started back in 2009.

My Program:
I am in my second round with the 5% Challenge team. I hope to use this as a motivation to start the scale moving down.
I use the Spark People tracker to stay with calorie allowance and check that my nutrtion figures are where they should be.
I am going to strength class 3 days a week. I just got a fitbit and I'm trying to do 10,000+ steps each day.

Personal Information:
My husband and I are semi-retired, (we keep busy and work flexible part time jobs). We love the Patriots and traveling. We enjoy being on the beach, or hiking in the mountains. We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. We feel blessed to have such a good life and such a wonderful family.
