I decided to start anew and reset my goal ticker again in 2016. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some heart issues. As of Jan. 2014, they are all under control with medication. Hopefully, by losing more weight, I can eventually cut down on some meds. 2014 ended on a bad note when my dad passed away in November. 2015 was the Year of the Concert for me & my husband. Continuing into 2016 and 2017!

I have kept off 45 lbs. and am happy to be under 200 lbs. Thanks to SparkPeople, I have the tools and the will power to do it! And, most of all, the support!

Member Since: 10/18/2010

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and get fit! I want to be able to stop some of the medication if I eat better and improve my health.

I want to live to see grandchildren!

My Program:
I will exercise 5 times per week and try to fit in little "mini sessions" whenever I can. I am committing to at least 25 minutes a day. NO computer time until the exercise is done!

I will not give in to emotional eating as I have done so many times in the past.

I will NOT eat past 9 PM.

I will plan my meals and track every little bite! If I ate it, I have to own up to it!

Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart for 39 years. We have 2 adult sons.

I have lived on Long Island (NY) all of my life.

I hope to move to VA or NC when I retire. Or maybe CA near our older son.

Other Information:
I love reading Stephen King novels. Own most of them!

I enjoy sitting outside on my deck and walking by the lake in the preserve nearby. Watch Yankee baseball and like hockey too.

I like listening to a variety of music - I especially love The Cure, Usher, Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Steely Dan, Mary J. Blige, Elton John and I'm a huge John Lennon fan too.

    Thanks for the boxing gloves; that's the most excitement (and not the good kind) this town has seen in years! Hopefully, it does happen again in years! Have a great weekend, Kay

    Yes Debb...I do have a deadline, It's 3 - 6 months before the date I would retire...which would be next March 1st if I'm going to do it then.
    I'll have to tell my manager and apply for my pension from the company plus, of course...I'll need to put in for Social Security.

    LOL, I know what you mean, Debb...but periodically, I also have to remind myself that there were no "cool breezes" blowing in the city when I was going to work ;) It gets pretty hot and humid, just doesn't stay around as long. My mom always used to say, how will I stand the heat...and I would tell her, the same as I stood the cold...only the opposite. I go from one a/c to another, instead of a warm place :)

    I've thought of going back up after I only family is still there, but I just can't imagine... Problem is, I just don't think I could take the ice and snow anymore.
    Have fun at your concert today. emoticon I had a boss once who was bonkers for Steely Dan!

    Thanks Debb! Yes, damage was minimal in my area. I'll never get used to these storms, but then...they're happening all over these days! My brother's house was flooded a few years back, in Hurricane S.I.
    Have a great day!
