I have been a member of Sparkpeople since 2006. I am returning for a second time.I returned th first time shortly after my husband passed in 2013.The friends that I have made here have stuck with me through all the difficult times. I am counting on that again.

I am a 60+ retired high school teacher. I was married 47 years to my college sweetheart. I have two married sons and four grandchildren. I am a breast cancer survivor. I have been truly blessed over the years and feel grateful for all of these blessings in my life.

Update 1/1/10 My weight has returned to where it was when I started Sparkpeople. I am refocusing and redirecting my life as I work to bring change and make my life an adventure.
