My Goals:
My healthy active granddaughter brings back so many fond memories of myself before my chronic fatigue. Spark People has just re-ignited my zeal to lose some weight and maybe have some energy again. YES

My Program:
Regarding food, I plan tp cut out all xtra sugars, limit salt and go back to basics. Incorprating exercise will be done both at home and at work.

Personal Information:
I've worked as an educator since 1972, and I just love it. Kids are so energizing and bubbly. I used to drive a cab in nyc, teach at correctional facilities, go sky diving and scuba diving. I feel I've accomplished many things and have wonderful memories

Other Information:
All of a sudden I wake up and say Hey where;s the Gracie I used to know. I like that Gracie and I want her back.
Hmmm How do I find her...
I know, maybe if I take better care of the Gracie thats present, feed her correctly, properly exercise her, be nice, patient and generous with her, the Gracie of long ago will come back.

Bye, I have a lot of work to do.

Hi Gracie, I am so glad I stopped by your page. I wanted to welcome you again to the Teachers Learning to Lose team and I found a treasure! I am so sorry about you son, I cannot imagine how painful that must have been and must still be. I love the things you have done, you must be a very strong determined woman so I know you can do this!

Gracie,
it's good to meet you. And I hope that you'll keep in touch. Through all I've been through I've learned that Courage & Patience aren't something given- Their something earned... And all the trials we go through lead to some other "bigger picture" that we can only see when we look Back. Not when we're going throught it.
You'll be a blessing to someone that you may not even have met yet. And become stronger depite it in the process.

Welcome to Teachers and SP. You will enjoy this site very much. Just stick with it and you will notice great things happening soon! I'm sorry to read about your difficulties and I understand that smile facade. I have done the same thing for years because my mom was very sick for a very long time. I've been off the SP radar for a couple of weeks because my mom took a turn for the worse and passed away last Friday. We had her services on Wed and It has just been so busy around here. Never knew there was so much to take care of. I am going to try to get back into the swing of SP as soon as I can. I have continued to try and eat conscientiously through all of this, but it has been difficult. I did lose another 1.5 lbs and I thought that was pretty good considering I haven't been able to use the nutrition tracker very much. Emotionally it has been hard, but I have lots of support and I know my mom is now resting peacefully. I hope you find some solace in the loss of you son. He would be so proud of you for taking on SP! Good luck!
