HI, I am an ancient gal who gained 70 pounds after quitting smoking 20 years ago (March 7, 1989). I now know how to lose the weight sensibly, but I just don't do it. I don't care to go back to my normal adult body (I think I would look and be too frail at my age now), but losing and keeping off 40 pounds would be just fine.

I have been retired for nearly 4 years and am feeling a bit purposeless after a long, rewarding career. Gotta be something new and rewarding out there. :)

I am doing some better at sleep. Found I have sleep apnea and am using a machine now. Maybe it helps.

My hometown (although we lived in the country) was Blackduck. We went to Bemidji for things like doctor or dentist appointments and I loved to look at the lake -- as well
as see the huge herds of buffalo. But I'm older than you, I think, so things could be a bit different in my memory.

I just saw the message you left on my page and thought it would be rude not to answer your question. I am not an English teacher yet, but will be student teaching starting next week. I graduate in December and will look for permanent employment after that. I'm glad to hear that you loved your work so much. Good luck with all your goals, and thank you for posting on my page.

Thanks for your note and well wishes. My life has been busy with end of school year stuff - a daughter moving back home for the summer - travels for graduation - all the things that happen in May. Today was our seniors' last day - hallelujah! They "check out" about a week before and it makes that last week with them both sweet and challenging.
You are moving right along in the weight loss tracker - way to go
emoticon I backtracked abit on a recent trip to Washington DC. I still don't know how I gained 2 pounds in 4 days because I did not overdo it except for one meal .... so I am hoping it will soon disappear.
Wishing you a terrific Memorial Day weekend!

Kay

Hey, it's me again.

Thanks for the feedback on may page. How great for you that you have an exercise buddy in your sister-in-law! Now all we have to do is wait expectantly for Spring to really arrive (as I write this, it is snowing out).

Right now my walking buddy has four legs and likes to stop often for mailboxes and fire hydrants. My husband will also walk with me, but if he's walking for fitness, he goes much faster than I do.

P.S. I realized that one of my messages was confusing; I am actually not retired - yet - a few more years to go, I think (well, at least one more year, since I just signed my contract for 09-10).

How are you doing on your 8 hrs/night sleep goal? I've been working on it, too, by making sure I am in bed in plenty of time to get 8 hrs before the alarm goes off...but the sleep does not always happen like it should.
I always figured that it would be easier in retirement??? But perhaps not :)
