My weight has been a life-long issue. I came into the world close to 10 lbs, and have never really been "thin". Many years ago I learned that exercise would help me tremendously, but it's easy to fall off the "wagon". I had surgery for 2 different types of cancer 24 months ago and came out of that with a new commitment to life. It's been a rocky road, but now is the time to make the changes to keep me healthy!

Now that I'm following the Spark lifestyle, I feel so much better and feel like my life has taken a turn for the better. The most important thing is that I feel in control of what's happening to me.

Member Since: 5/26/2009

Fitness Minutes: 99,700

My Goals:
When I discovered SparkPeople (thanks Birdie!) I knew it was time to lose, so I set my first year's goal at 50 pounds. After just a few weeks I can see that this is realistic and my lifestyle really has changed.

My Program:
I'm doing strength training 3 days a week and love the exercises generated for me. On those days I'm doing at least 30 minutes of cardio as a warm-up. Then on the other 3 days I do 45-60 minutes of cardio. Sunday is a day of rest and reflection!

Personal Information:
After 35 years of teaching my husband and I retired to the beautiful mountains of western NC. When people ask where I live I tell them, "Head towards Heaven and just before you get to the pearly gates, turn right and there we are!"

Other Information:
I love to read and watch movies. My newest hobby is quilting. It's been fun to learn such a cool skill at my age!

    Glad to hear all the good news! It must be wonderful to have all that love around you. I was laying in bed last night and couldn't sleep, so I was thanking God for all his beautiful creation. And I told him that, in my opinion, dogs are one of his greatest. There's a lot wrong in this world, but there's a lot right, too. And dogs are one of the best! emoticon

    Hey You!

    Checking in, since I haven't heard from you. I hope everything is okay. I scrolled through your pics looking for some of the new member of your family, and had some nice remembrances of Harley.

    Happy May Day tomorrow. Spring has sprung! It's doing nothing but raining here for days. My lawn mower will get a good workout later this week. emoticon

    Hey Carol,

    Anyone who knowingly chooses politics as a profession is either CRAZY or a CRIMINAL. That's the only conclusion I can come up with. This whole thing can't be over too soon for me.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Harley. I feel like I know him. He's very lucky to have people who love him so much and take such good care of him. In his honor, I've moved his picture to the number one spot on my spark page. My thoughts are with you. emoticon

    Hi Carol,

    Just dropping by to say emoticon Last debate tonight (thank goodness!). This is going to be interesting. I'll be glad when this election cycle is over. Of course, there's going to be fresh drama with the new administration, I'm sure. But I'm going to try to skip most of that! emoticon

    Have a great day! emoticon
