Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!
MY GOAL "LOOK"
TO KEEP ME ON TRACK.
Recent Choir Concert
In May of 2008, I embarked on this adventure of changing my lifestyle and taking better care of my health.
I started out at 300 (which stunned the heck out of me, but explained why my knees and feet hurt so much!!), but am currently (11/13/11) at 187.
SparkPeople has offered advice, information, and fun which has helped me stay on target. The best part, though, has been the like-minded travelers whose journeys offer ME the best advice, information, and damn! if they ain't FUN to boot!
The most difficult thing for me is being more consistently active. As much as I like having DONE exercise & do feel better--no doubt about it!--I fight with myself every day to do SOMETHING. It is getting easier, but only in small ways. Guess I'll have to keep building on those....
I write science fiction, poetry, stage & screenplays, and am currently working on a SF novel for YA. I am currently running a poetry workshop, and am also a freelance editor.
I am the Events Manager for The Plant City Community Choir which in its 3 years has grown from 12 voices to 40! We have been invited back for the 3rd time to EPCOT to sing in the 300-voice Massed Choir for Christmas. This year we had to turn down invitations to sing at local venues due to being too busy!!!

A smart blonde going dark & gray, & wishing I would just jump to white!
I sing alto in a community choir & am an ESOL Literacy tutor.
I lost Dad 8/9/10 & Mom 5/20/11.
I am mourning them and the loss of their company and love, but I have been able to not use the grief as an excuse to stuff my face.
